Map of Jutiapa district in Guatemala

Basic information about Jutiapa
Jutiapa is a department of Guatemala that borders along El Salvador and the Pacific Ocean. The capital is the city of Jutiapa. It has a population of about 489,085. The population is ethnically \mestizo\ (European and non-indigenous) Though in the northern regions of Jutiapa there are few descendents that once belonged to the now extinct xinca population. The indigenous population is non existent today in Jutiapa with traditional language and culture no longer conserved or practiced. The department is divided into seventeen municipalities. Jutiapa is the country's southeastern-most department. The main crops are sorghum, tobacco, onion and corn. The climate is dry. An important attraction is the cattle fair. It is at 405 m above sea level. The coat of arms contains the cornucopia symbolizing Jutiapa as the barn of the East, supplying Guatemala with most of the grain consumed by the people. The horse and the cow represent the cattle; the books stand for educational and cultural advances. In the background sits La Cruz hill, the firm guardian of the departmental chief town, with the tower or antenna of a Jutiapa radio station. Behind the hill float the clouds, the sky and the sun of Jutiapa, \The Sun City\. This coat of arms is placed on the flag between two laurel branches symbolizing the daily triumphs of the sons of Jutiapa. The flag is mainly white, showing in its center the coat of arms adapted and adroned, between two laurel branches.

NameDescriptionShow
PasacoPasaco (Spanish pronunciation: [paˈsako]) is a municipality in the Jutiapa department of Guatemala, located near the Pacific Ocean on the Border with El Salvador. It was originally formed when a group of Aztecs broke off at the arrival of Hernán Cortés, and went further south into what is now Guatemala (then Coahtemalan, or The Land of Abundance, in a Mayan dialect). They united with some groups of Indians, pushing others into what is now El Salvador, recognizing Cortés as a villain, not Quetzalcoatl, or the great white God returned, as the Náhuatl, or Aztec leadership supposed at that time.

Agua BlancaAgua Blanca (Spanish pronunciation: [ˈaɣwa ˈβlaŋka]) is a municipality in the Jutiapa department of Guatemala. Like most eastern regions of Guatemala near Jutiapa ('el oriente') most locals in Agua Blanca embrace- as Americans refer to it- a typical cowboy, 'old western' culture. To see mustached men in tight blue jeans wearing cowboy hats and boots, carrying fully armed hand guns, with long magazines tightly secured to their leather belts in public venues with children present, is to capture in a microcosm the cultural norm of Agua Blanca, as this 'outlaw' culture- most similar to that of Mexican drug cartels- is quickly being accepted and assimilated into the regional culture.
