Mar 9, 2020

The only thing I didn´t like about my Interjet flight is the fact that it didn´t allow me to check-in online and it kept giving me an error message saying due to the type of reservation I booked, it was unable to check-in online.

Cheap Flights to Guatemala City

A vibrant collision of old and new, Guatemala City, known locally as ‘Guate’, is the capital of Guatemala and home to 3 million people. Mayan relics, Spanish churches, modern skyscrapers, affluent neighborhoods and shanty towns exist cheek by jowl in this colorful Central American city.

When to Book Flights to Guatemala City

Peak season runs from November to March and from June to August, but there is no bad time to visit Guatemala City. The temperature varies little throughout the year, with highs of up to 80°F and lows of around 55°F. However, it will feel a lot more humid – and there can be a lot of rain – between June and September. December, January and February are the driest months.

The city is busy in August for the Fiesta Patronal de la Virgen de la Asuncion, and Holy Week before Easter also attracts the crowds, so plan ahead if you are thinking of flying at these times.

How to Find the Best Deals to Guatemala City

Flights to Guatemala City are available from several different US cities. The ‘Nearby airports’ option, under your chosen departure airport when your search results are returned, allows you to explore deals available from alternative locations.

How to Get Around Guatemala City

Guatemala City is divided into 21 districts, or zonas. The center is Zona 1, and most of the high-end shops are located in Zona 10.

There are three levels of bus service in Guatemala City, which are color coded. Transmetro buses are green and have their own lanes and operate services with very few stops. Trans Urbano buses are blue and white, have more stops and use the same lanes as the rest of the traffic. You need a pre-paid card to use these. Visitors are not advised to travel in the red ‘chicken’ buses that stop almost everywhere and can be very crowded.

Taxis also come in different hues. There are yellow metered taxis and unmetered white taxis, with fares negotiated in advance. Driving in Guatemala City is challenging, but you can hire vehicles at the airport. A better option is to hire a car and driver for the day.

What Are the Must-Sees in Guatemala City?

In Zona 7 lie the ruins of the old Mayan city of Kaminaljuyu, where you can explore some of the excavations. For more information on the city’s Mayan past and present visit the Museo Miraflores in Zona 11 and the Archaeology and Ethnology Museum in Zona 13.

Guatemala City has plenty of spectacular buildings to visit but find time for the former presidential palace constructed by prisoners in the 1940s - the Palacio Nacional, which now operates as a museum. There are guided tours which give you the chance to wave nonchalantly from the presidential balcony.

In Zona 2 is one of Guatemala City’s more unusual attractions, the Map en Relieve. The 3D map of the country was made in 1904 and needs to be viewed from an observation tower.

Tips for Traveling in Guatemala City

Zona 1 is the historic center of the city where you can find many of Guatemala City’s tourist attractions. Zona 10 is the modern area, and within it is the neighborhood nicknamed Zona Viva, where the best nightlife can be found.
