Guatemala-Flores (Tikal) flights

Jump to last reply

We have an open-jaw flight into Guat City, return from Belize City, and are planning to fly up to Tikal, then bus over to Belize. Online one-way fares Guat-Flores are $113 on Taca, but I've seen postings saying that roundtrip flights Guat-Flores can be bought for ~$90 at Antigua travel agencies. Anybody know the one-way fare if we buy in-person in Antigua, a day or two in advance? (And is TikalJets still operating? Are the flights on jets or prop planes?)

Alternatively we'd buy a one-way Gaut-Belize, if we decide to take one more beach day instead of Tikal. Does someone know that in-person fare? It's ~$200 online with Copa.

We're also considering the long drive, if one-way car rentals aren't overly expensive. I've read it averages 11 hours, but most of our drive times in Costa Rica were about half the "average", and even if Guat's roads are worse than CR's, I imagine I could do it in less, maybe 7? (Manhattan driver here, for better and worse.) Anybody concur?

Thanks!
