Guatemala is divided into 22 departments (Spanish: departamentos)[1] which are in turn divided into 340[2][3] municipalities.

In addition, Guatemala has previously claimed that all or part of the nation of Belize is a department of Guatemala (as a part of the Province of Verapaz), and this claim is sometimes reflected in maps of the region. Guatemala formally recognized Belize in 1991, but the border disputes between the two nations have not been resolved.[4][5]
