Best Time to Fly to Guatemala

Peak season:

December through Easter and the summer months of June through August are the highest peak times. However, because of its excellent climate, travel is popular throughout the year. Santa Semana is the biggest festival — Guatemala flights can be pricey and accommodations can be booked up during this time.

Off season:

Don’t expect to find tourist spots empty at any time of year. The rainy season can become unpleasantly wet inland, but Guatemala flights are still available. It’s likely cheap flights to Guatemala can be purchased during the rainy season.

Overview

Take 1,000 years of Mayan influence and combine it with 300 years of Spanish rule and you’ve got today’s Guatemala. When your flight to Guatemala lands, you’ll be in a country is home to 13 million people (the most populous in Central America) and thanks to the hundreds of thousands of travelers booking flights to Guatemala every year, the country remains economically stable and full of variety. 

In some remote Guatemala villages, and for many of Guatemala’s elder community, each day is based on the Maya Calendar. For those travelers booking flights to Guatemala with strong mathematical skills, and good knowledge of astronomy, put your watch away on the flight to Guatemala and try telling time the Mayan way. 

The Guatemalan economy is still heavily dependent on its agriculture – sugar cane, coffee, bananas – and the crafts and textiles specific to the Mayas. Visitors booking flights to Guatemala will revel in the crafts, architecture, and brightly colored Maya textiles and fabrics. Bring along another suitcase on the flight to Guatemala…you’ll want to bring home a lot of this country’s history. 

Book a flight to Guatemala to explore the hand-in-hand feeling of modernity and antiquity.

Guatemala Travel Information

  • Antigua Guatemala is a beautifully preserved colonial town, designated a UNESCO World Heritage site for its Spanish Baroque buildings. The best way to see the town is to take a long walk through the streets. Be sure to visit the Parque Central, where locals and tourist congregate around the beautiful central fountain.
  • The capital, Guatemala City, is a much larger and more modern town, though it encompasses the ruins of the ancient Maya city of Kaminaljuyu. It is easy to navigate the town as it is divided into “zones”. Zone ten, or La Zona Viva, is the most modern area, where many of the restaurants and bars are situated. Zone one is the oldest part of town, which contains the main plaza. Visit on a Sunday to join the locals taking a stroll
  • Guatemalan food is similar to Mexican – expect tortillas, tacos, paella and meat. Food served on street stalls smells tempting and is delicious, but do take care when buying from street vendors. Make sure the food is cooked through and don’t buy pre-sliced fruit, such as melons, as it is often sprinkled with local water, which is unsafe to drink.
  • Coffee is one the biggest exports from the country. Tours are available of some of the bigger plantations such as Los Torrales.
  • The country is generally much cheaper to visit than its neighbors, but be prepared for the “tourist tax” that will be added on to nearly everything. Prices for foreigners, especially where there is no written price, such as on buses or in markets, will always be higher than those the locals pay.
  • In many parts of the country, no English is spoken or understood. If you don’t know any Spanish, make sure to take a phrase book.
