How long does it take for a book to get to Antigua from the US?

by jsawvel

I would like to order some books online from Amazon.com and have them shipped to Antigua.

Does anyone know how long the books should take to arrive from the United States?

Sincerely,

Joe

Sorry but this isn't a travel question. Why don't you ask Amazon, or else someone else living in Guatemala, e.g. via expatexchange, expatriates or Guatemala. Chat, discuss, Dating & meet friends.

Oops, ignore "Chat, discuss, Dating & meet friends" - it's the discuss part I was assuming would help you with expat-related questions.

Travelers who are even a litle intelligent read, so this IS logically a travel question, except for the less illiterate or more easily bored among us. I could be wrong, but I believe that incoming books along with other items all get taxed. This could delay delivery as well.

It could take quite a while for import taxes to be assessed and paid to get the books released. If you REALLY want to send books to Guatemala, I suggest sending them with someone who is going there and would be also paying to check in luggage anyway.

Travel Tips for Antigua Guatemala

Hang out in the central park...

by mesquite

Hang out in the central park and just watch the people. The park is full of vendors, locals, daytrippers from Guatamala city and foreigners on weekends. Fooling around with the vendors. Bargaining is expected, so have fun with it. I would get the price down low and then pay a little extra to take some pictures, or if they wouldn't come down enough, I'd tell them I'd buy the item if they'd let me take some pictures.

Santiago de Los Caballeros was...

by la_beba

Santiago de Los Caballeros was the first planned city in the New World.
Its layout was assigned to the architect Juan Bautista Antonelli. He oriented streets and avenues a grid- like pattern, starting from the Central Plaza and extending from north to south and from east to west to from the core of the city.
As time went by, communities dedicated to specific crafts or industries developed around it, forming small towns, now part of modern Antigua.

Pila

by Sue08080

A pila is an open-air laundry, still used by many Mayans today.

This pila is on the grounds of the casa Popenoe. You can see the individual areas for washing.

Doing laundry at the pila is a communal affair where women gather to scrub, rinse and chat. Efforts to replace the pila with a more modern system have been met with some resistance as the ladies enjoy this chance to socialize!

Packing List

by melody129

Make sure that you have your passport on you at all times. Sometimes they will set up a police roadblock and search your vehicle for no reason and if you do not have your passport you will go to jail.

Experimental Macadamia Research Station

by Doug1054

This is a great spot to visit. Earth friendly plantation that provides 200 macadamia trees if they agree to work one month learning how to grow trees. Provides macadamia nuts and beauty secret macadamia oils. Macadamia trees are
Carbon Dioxide sinks since their large foliage takes up the carbon dioxide and releases oxygen. The white chocolate macadamia nuts are to die for....
