Best way to get to Guatemala from CR without a long bus trip

Jump to last reply

I want to travel from San Jose to Guatemala. What's the best way to do it by air? Is there a train? Then I want to get to Oaxaca and San Cristobal from Guatemala. Any suggestions? Are there good local airlines?

    No train between Costa Rica and Guatemala. It's either busing it or flying San Jose - Guatemala City. Think Grupo Taca does the trip.

    Depending a little on where in Guatemala you'll be, I suggest busing it to San Cristobal, then possibly flying from there. From the Guatemalan highlands, it's not all that long a trip to San Cristobal - i.e from Quetzaltenango about 2,5 hours to the border and another 2-3 hours from there to San Cristobal. This by public bus, probably even faster if you rent a car or go by shuttle (There are shuttles from Quetzaltenango and Antigua, and may well be from Panajachel as well). And the scenery is great, especially on the bit from Huehuetenango to La Mesilla border. Onwards from San Cristobal to Oaxaca is pretty far, so may well be worth getting a flight - can't help you on this one, as I don't even know if San Cristobal has an aiport. Oh, and you'll probably save money doing it this way (as opposed to flying from Guatemala to Mexico), domestic flights usually being way cheaper than international ones.
