There are two international airports in Guatemala. The largest is the Guatemala City airport of La Aurora International Airport (GUA); this is the airport that you are likely to use. The other international airport, Mundo Maya International Airport (FRS), is located outside the towns of Santa Elena and Flores. Though the Guatemala's airports may themselves be nothing to write home about, they are the precursor to your upcoming adventures, which might include kayaking, exploring ruins, observing wildlife in cloud forests, and going on cultural tours.
Most travelers land in Guatemala at La Aurora International Airport , which is the fourth busiest airport in Central America. It’s located in the city’s Zone 13, about 4 miles from the city center. Wi-Fi is only available on Guatemalan mobile devices and there is no air conditioning.
Most travelers end up booking accommodations in nearby upscale neighborhoods, including Zones 14, 15, and 16. You can find more U.S. hotel chains closer to the airport in Zones 10, 11, and 13.
For travelers with tight schedules, you might want to opt for an airport hotel. Guests are not allowed to spend the night at La Aurora Airport, which opens at 3:00 AM. You can find upscale hotels in the vicinity as well as simple, affordable accommodations that emphasize convenience.
