Shared shuttles offer convenient transportation between popular Guatemalan destinations. The shuttles are comfortable and typically have door-to-door service.
The shuttles are well-maintained minibuses that can seat 8–16 people. They run daily and are driven by professional Guatemalan drivers. The shuttles are often filled with a few groups heading to the same destination, and many routes may have several departure times within a single day. Most of the time you’ll stop at least once to go to the bathroom or get a snack.
Most shuttles will pick passengers up at their hotel and drop them off at a hotel in their final destination. If, however, your hotel is outside the main part of town, the shuttle may not provide door-to-door service. If this happens, a taxi can take you to/from your hotel.
Shared shuttles are cheaper than private transports, and are thus a convenient and economic way to get around in Guatemala. Larger groups, however, may consider booking a whole private transport, as it can sometimes be cheaper per person to do so. Private transports also have more flexible departure times.
