It will take 10 - 12 hours to travel from Guatemala City to Flores by bus. Linea Dorada runs Air Conditioning buses.

Alternatively, flying there is much faster (1 hour) - http://www.taca.com.

It is a long bus ride. We flew there . The ruins are well worth the trip however you decide to go.

Hi there, it takes about eight hours on a good paved road, and if you catch the overnight bus, you'll save yourself a ton of money because flying is very expensive. You'll also save on a hotel night. Deluxe buses are safe, totally different than chicken buses. The bus gets in real early in the morning which gives you the whole day to visit the park. Check out ww.adnautobusesdelnorte.com or www.tikalmayanworld.com. For hotels in Flores go to www.corpetur.com Good luck.

You might want to consider staying in El remate. It's much closer to Tikal . so you can get a really early start. We stayed at Le casa Don David. It was excellent and they were very helpful , even sent a cab to pick us up when we arrived and arranged a guide to take us around the ruins .The rooms are simple and spotless. Its a goodt value and includes a coupon for dinner or breakfast ( you're choice!!) $44.00 per couple.

When we went there, it took 8 hours all the way up on the bus from Guate to Santa Elena (Near Flores).

Flores and Santa Elena of course is where tourists usually base themselves for trips to Tikal

Travel Tips for Guatemala City

Another use for the wheelbarrow. (Mangoes)

by euzkadi

Guatemala is famous for it´s mangoes, i found this couple of young guys selling them in wheelbarrows in zone 1 (Downtown). They posed for the pictures, and i gave them a copy of the pictures (there was a Kodak store next) and they gave me with smiles and jokes a free big bag of delicious mangoes. These are the kind of things that you won´t find in the new "posh" Zona Viva (zone 10).

The National Palace

by Stephen-KarenConn

Palicio Nacional or the National Palace, faces Plaza Mayor, from the north side. It was built by dictator/president Jorge Ubico (1931-1944) and is officially called Palicio Nacional de la Cultura. It is the third palace to stand on this spot.

This opulant and imposing building, with polished wood, gleaming brass fixtures, carved stone, chrystal chandeliers, and frescoed arches surrounds two Moorish-style courtyards. The palace often hosts revolving exhibitions featuring contemporary Guatemalan artists. Visitors may wander through the palace on their own or take a free tour. Unfortunately, I arrived too late in the day and was only able to see the palace from the outside.

Hours:
Mon-Fri: 9-11 a.m. & 2-4:45 p.m.
Sat-Sun: 9-10:45 a.m. & 2-3:45 p.m.

Jumping Around Guatemala City!

by jumpingnorman

It was traffic on that Monday afternoon rush hour and it was nice passing through a plaza in Guatemala City where they had this huge Christmas Tree and you can see families bringing in their children to "Santa Claus" stalls in front of it. Children line up to have a picture with Santa, just as we do in USA malls. It's a very western look to this Latin country, but very endearing to see how family life is so valued here.

Guatemala City. Lots of travelers by-pass the capital and go straight to Antigua. I suggest that you spend a day or two in the capital and walk around, see what it is like. It is real Guatemala today, unlike Antigua, which is clearly not the representative of Guatemala today.
