Travel & Vaccines
You must have a US Passport to travel to Guatemala. We suggest you make several copies of your passport and place in different locations. Should you lose your passport, this will make it much less of a thorn to return to the states.
Getting to Guatemala is fairly simple. Make your flight reservation to Guatemala City (GUA). We can arrange your transportation from the Airport to Chichicastenango. Traveling to Guatemala City is approximately a 2.5 hour direct flight from Miami, Houston or Dallas. If your luggage should not make your flight it sometimes takes several days for you to receive your luggage in Chichi. You may want to carry some overnight things with you, such as a toothbrush and change of under clothing.
