Marydel is home to a large community of Hispanic/Latino-Americans. The majority of the Latinos in Marydel are Guatemalans of Mayan descent who came from poor, rural, mountainous regions and speak Mam (a Mayan language) rather than Spanish. Due to their origins in the agricultural, rural regions of Guatemala, many Guatemalan immigrants felt at home living in rural Caroline County. Guatemalans of Mayan descent are discriminated against in their home country and many do not speak Spanish, making it difficult for some Guatemalan immigrants to attain legal residency or citizenship, though many Guatemalans in Marydel have become permanent residents and American citizens.
