Guatemala City La Aurora International Airport (GUA)


The airport is situated four miles (6km) south of Guatemala City, and about 16 miles (25km) from Antigua.

Getting to the city

Most hotels will offer transfer services from the airport, and there are several shuttles into Guatemala City and Antigua throughout the day; however, these have no strict schedule and often rely on the shuttle filling up first. Taxis and regular buses are also available.


Local time is GMT -6.

Car rental

Car rental companies include Avis and Thrifty, along with some local companies.

Airport Taxis

Taxis are available outside the terminal building and it is advisable to agree on a price with the cab driver before departure, as taxi prices can vary, becoming quite expensive.

Transfer between terminals

The terminals are connected.


There are bars, shops and restaurants at the airport. Shopping at the airport is particularly good, with plenty of local crafts on offer. An ATM is available in the departure lounge. There is a currency exchange at the airport, but it is not known for having good rates and it is better to find an official bank offering foreign exchange services, as they offer more reasonable rates.


Long and short-term options are available, but long-term parking can be very expensive.
