If you want to know more about Guatemalan Spanish, look for the Dictionary of Popular Guatemalan expression by Daniel Armas. There are several editions of this book, here is one: Diccionario de la Expresion Popular Guatemalteca. I - Vocabulario, II - Modismos, III - Apendice, Adagios y Refranes It is a few decades old so may not have the most modern usage, but it has a few thousand more "Chapinismos" (phrases used in Guatemala). In Guatemala, look for this book in the Piedra Santos store in Gemenis Mall (Zona 10).
If you want even more, look for the book Chapinismos del Quijote (Spanish Edition). I have not read it, but I was told that it explains that many of the idiosyncracies of Spanish as spoken in Guatemala come from the fact that early Spanish settlers in Guatemala are from the same region of Spain as Cervantes, thus the Spanish spoken in Guatemala continues to use the language of Don Quixote. In Guatemala, look for this book in Sophos bookstore in Fontabella Mall (Zona 10).
