Quetzal

Where is the best place to change dollars into Quetzals? My daughter is arriving Guatemala City for overnight stay before travelling to flores. Cannot get Quetzals at travel agent so does she change them at the airport when she arrives?

When is she traveling? It's possible to change them at the airport or access an ATM but if you have a little lead time, you could order them online for pickup at your bank; that's what I do if I haven't carried over enough to get me started from a previous trip. Happy trails!

I also try to get some through my bank before I leave. Depending on how late she gets in or how early she's leaving for Flores, she can just go to a bank. The airport is a last resort -- it's generally a rip-off.
