La Aurora International Airport
Fly into Guatemala City’s (GUA). From there, we suggest you take a "chicken bus"—named for your potential chicken, goat or live-animal-carrying seatmates—to Antigua; it’s a cultural experience and one essential to Guatemala. The drive is about an hour, and you can take a taxi if you have an aversion to livestock. Antigua does not have a huge supply of hotel rooms, so book your rooms as far in advance as possible.
