Antigua to Rio Dulce and back

by cya-traveller

We are in Antigua and want to travel to Rio Dulce. The shuttle out of here leaves in the am but the trip is two hours to the city and then a transfer to Linea Dorado for another 6 hours to Rio Dulce.
We have thought about spending the night in the city and then taking the bus so we won´t have to get up at 5am in Antigua and then 6 hours on a bus to Rio Dulce. Does anyone have thoughts on this?
Our only concern is staying in Zona 10 might take a long time to get to the bus station in Zona 4 and thus defeat the purpose of staying in the city.
A second question is on the trip back from Rio Dulce. We were thinking of travelling through El Estar then Coban to Chichicastenango for the market. Any thoughts from anyone on this. (Coban area offers whitewater rafting. Anyone done this and thoughts?)
Any and all info on these would be appreciated.

If you get a taxi from zona 10 to zona 4 I don't think it will be so long (about 20 minutes maybe). You should definitely stop by Coban and go to Semuc Champey water pools!
Enjoy!

Travel Tips for Guatemala City

conveniences near Marriot Hotel.

by lyttled

The Marriot is in zone 9. There is a grocery store called EconoSuper on Reforma Blvd. right behind the hotel. Go left out the doors of the hotel. Turn left at the corner and go to the next corner. On that street there is also a Japanese restaurant called Edoya run by a Japanese/American man (I remember his name as Keith) which I'm sure will have food your friend can eat and can be a source of more information. I can also recommend a restaurant called Katok in zona 10. They have a grilled vegetable plate and their black bean soup is really good.

There is a large shopping mall (four floors, food court, movie theater) across Reforma from the grocery store.

The Marriot is also close(walking distance) to the zoo, archeological and historical museums, the children's museum and the Artisan's Market.

There is an English speaking church about three block to the right of the Marriot on 12 Calle (Montufar) at the Plazuela España. Look for the big palm trees. People there can help you a lot. The office is open from 9:00 - 5:00 M-F. Services are 8:15 and 11:00 a.m. and 6:00 p.m. on Sundays.

Guatemala City is a modern city with all the conveniences of home, especially near the Marriot. People wear normal, although more modest than the US, clothes. The neighborhood is used to seeing people adopting babies.

You can take a shuttle to Antigua for $10 and spend a very pleasant day in this old colonial city. Check out the museums at Casa Santo Domingo hotel.

The most dangerous thing you will encounter in the area you are at is the traffic. But be in by dark.

Enjoy your stay.

Crepes gallore

by la_beba about La Crepe

Crepes, French and International. Specialties: Large variety of Crepes, both entree and dessert, Salads and Soups, Vegetarian and dietetic food, ice creams, Wines, Beer and a large variety of beverages. Crepe with a touch of "national flavour"...... the "black bean and sour cream" crepe features one of the main dishes of Guatemalan's nutrition: black beans (as it also is corn = the mayans!)

Central Market. Upper Level ( Arts and Crafts)

by euzkadi

This huge market is located adjacent to the Metropolitan Cathedral and is the best place in the city for guatemalan handicrafts. The market has two levels; the top level for arts and crafts (hundred of stalls with textiles, leather and wood carvings from every corner of the country) and the lower level with the farmer´s market. Remember always to bargain, but i´m shure that this place has the lower prices in the whole country.

A short stay in Guate City

by acemj

I didn't really plan on spending any significant time in Guatemala City, but that's the good thing about traveling with a very loose itinerary. When my buddy Ryan and I met some new friends while in Antigua who happened to live in Guatemala City, we decided we'd spend our last night in the country in a nice hotel spending time with some locals who could show us around. We didn't see much, which gives me something more to see the next time I visit.

Guatemala City has a reputation for being a dangerous and dirty place that's not worth seeing at all. In fact, the vast majority of travelers only see the airport here, but I was intrigued after getting about an hour long driving tour of the four main zones of the center (Zones 1, 4, 9 and 10) where there are some interesting Colonial buildings and a distinctly modern feel that you won't find outside of the country's capital.
