Guatemala City is the capital of Guatemala. The La Aurora International Airport (the main international airport serving Guatemala) is located just outside the city, so chances are high that you’ll be in the city for at least a day or two. While it’s certainly not the top destination in Guatemala, Guatemala City nonetheless has some pleasant features. There are several historical sites to visit, and a range of nice restaurants, bars, and shops to sample.
The Holiday Inn in Guatemala City is a clean and reliable hotel. It has modern rooms and a nice offering of amenities, including a free airport shuttle and buffet breakfast.
