Creería que es Guatemala.

You want indicative there. It's only subjunctive if it's negative.

Like Ilmarien said, it should be the indicative. However, if it were negative, it would be fuera. If you use the conditional, you always use the past subjunctive with it - "No creería que fuera Guatemala."

Would it be the same in this context?

"It is Mexico."

"Strange. I would have thought it was Guatemala."
