Travel from Guatemala City to San Cristobal

by Azbabs

Is there a way to travel from Guatemala City to San Cristobal without flying through Mexico City or without taking a chicken bus? Taking other buses or vans would be acceptable.

You could take a Tica Bus to Tapachula and an Occidente onward to San Cristobal.

Re: Travel from Guatemala City to San Cristobal

Yes, you can do it, we did it--very common. You can take a shuttle van (or taxi)from GUA to Antigua, then catch another shuttle van to San Cristobal. It is a long journey (full day) but it is done fairly efficiently. The van drivers help you at the border and turn you over to the next van driver, depending upon destination. When we left Antigua we went to the border in a fully-loaded van, and when we got to the border the rest of the group was headed elsewhere, only myself and my husband were going to San Cristobal, so we had the van all to ourselves.

Just Google "van service San Cristobal to Antigua" or something like that and you will get some hits that go to sites with all the details. Good luck--it's fairly cheap.

I will be traveling in February from San Cristobal to Antigua. I've heard there is a border fee that can range from $20-$100 USD depending on the crossing. Does it have to be paid in US currency or do they take Mexican pesos? Any experience with that issue? In the US it is referred to as a bribe.

Travel Tips for Guatemala City

Modern city

by acemj

Cafe Virtual, an internet place we used briefly, is just one expample of the modernity that you'll experience in Guatemala City's Zone 10. Walking around this part of town, you'll see BMW car dealerships, sushi houses and lots of posh looking people with cell phones and PDAs. Is this the real Guatemala? Well, yes and no. It shows that not all people here growing coffee or weaving huipiles all day and then again, it's not exactly representative of the rest of the country.

Some "Swiss" flavour

by la_beba about La Cabaña Suiza

At only 20 minutes away from Guatemala City, up in the mountains on the road to the Colonial City of Antigua Cabaña Suiza Complex is located at 5,900 feet high over sea level (1,900 mts.) and aside from a natural atmosphere known like a one of the best climates in the world; it’s a Swiss family-run descendent establishment.

It's a real Swiss Café in Guatemala that offers a Select variety of original Swiss pastry and Swiss gourmet, also options of healthy and natural food, and a piece of local specialties with the accent on the Swiss culinary style under high standard of quality.

Biblioteca Nacional

by Jim_Eliason

On the west side of the Parque Central is the ultramodern Biblioteca Nacional contrasting the colonial architecture of the Palace and Cathedral on the other side of the plaza. The library is built on the former site of the Palacio de los Capitanes Generales.

The Highlights of Guatemala City

by thelukey

At first glance, Guatemala City appears frustratingly disorganized and wholly uninviting. If you enter this city by bus, you’ll soon be lead to believe that this urban agglomeration that is the home to roughly 4,000,000 people has exactly one street, because traffic in Guatemala City is absolutely ridiculous. During one extremely long trip from Xela to the Salvadoran border, it took my wife and I more than three hours to cross from one side of Guatemala City to the other, and this seems to be the norm, not the exception.

Another pet peeve that bears mentioning is the fact that, in an attempt to avoid the traffic that keeps Guatemala City’s main streets tied up day and night, many motorcyclists think nothing of driving on the sidewalks. Often at considerable speed. Keep your eyes open to avoid getting run over.

That said, if you end up having to spend a few days in Guatemala City, as I had to do in September 2005, there are just enough interesting places to allow for an enjoyable stay. Near the airport, the National Crafts Market, the Aurora Zoo, and the National Museum of Modern Art can all be taken in over the course of a leisurely afternoon. The city center is home to a handful of interesting buildings, and the central park is a good place to people-watch on the weekends.

Guatemala City, the present-day capital of Guatemala, certainly can’t compete with its colonial era predecessor, Antigua Guatemala, when it comes to the quantity of interesting churches, but it is home to a few (including the Iglesia San Francisco, the Iglesia Yurrita, and the church of the Parroquia de los Remedios) that are worthy of a visit.

One of the few spots of green remaining in Central America’s largest concrete jungle, the Botanical Garden at the Universidad de San Carlos is a nice spot to spend an hour or two breathing in some relatively fresh air and getting acquainted with some of the plant life that calls Guatemala home.
