Guatemala Airport - good meeting point for multiple travelers

Hello - I am meeting three other people at Guatemala City airport. We are all arriving on different flights within a span of about 2 hours in late morning.

1) In general, are there any suggestions on where to meet?
2) More specifically, is it possible to wait by another flight's arrival gate, or are you automatically funneled into customs?

You are funneled directly to passport control.

Directly into passport control. When this has happened to me in the past, our meetup location is the Crowne Plaza, which is pretty close to the hotel.

As mentioned, you are sent right to passport control.

One possible meeting point is the restaurant/snack kiosk just outside of the airport on the arrivals level.

Everyone will arrive the same (small) baggage claim and pass through the same airport exit. As you walk through the exit you will find yourself outside the airport building on the lower level. Take a right as you exit the door and you will see a small restaurant/snack kiosk. It is attached to the airport building and is the only one in this area. Can't miss it.
