Last minute details for my trip to Guatemala

Jump to last reply

I am so excited, leaving 2 weeks from today for my 30 day trip. Thanks for all the help so far. I have a few more questions:

1. I am still unsure what to do with my 5.5 hour layover at the airport in Guatemala CIty. I can take a taxi to the local museums (any other options?), but how do I get back? I understand you need to call for a taxi in order to get a reliable one? This leads me to my next question...

2. Is a sim card available at the airport? Do I even need one? I have a sim card that I used in Panama June 2010, Moviestar, that has some time left on it. Would it still be active and would it work in Guatemala?

3. Laundry service? I will be in Antigua with a host family for 1 week, followed by 3 weeks with a host family in San Pedro de Laguna. Can I pay extra to get laundry done by these families (assigned thru the schools) or are there laundry drop off services in these places? I don't want to wash clothes in sinks and am packing super light.

4. I will need to buy toiletries once I arrive in Antigua. Where to buy?

5. I am considering having a dental appointment in Antigua since I have no dental coverage here in the US. Any ideas or thoughts about that? Just need a check up and routine cleaning.

Thanks, I'm sure I'll have some other questions before I leave and I really appreciate everyone's help.
