Getting Around Guatemala City

If you arranged for transport when you reserved airfare to Guatemala City you made a good choice. Most airport taxi drivers charge a fixed fare that is more than double the typical metered fare for the same distance. There are free shuttles for many local hotels, so you have this option if your hotel offers it. Buses and taxis are the main transportation around the city itself. While the bus fares are cheap, they are not consistent. Some routes cost a little more than others, and the fare is higher on Sundays. They do not run after dark due to frequent robberies. Taxi fares differ by cab, and you may get one with a metre or one with a negotiable fare. Be sure to agree on a price before entering the cab. Yellow taxis are the most reasonable, but they must be hired by phone rather than hailed in the street.
