Places to stay in Guatemala City & Quetzaltenango/bus travel

Jump to last reply

I am a single woman (60, but in good shape/health) and will be arriving in Guatemala City before going to see my daughter in Queztaltenango. Would you please give me advice on a safe place to stay in both cities.

As well, I plan to take a bus from Guatemala City to Xela unless it is considered too risky - in which case, please advise on an alternate source of transportation (shuttle? who conducts them?) Is there a central bus station in Guatemala City and how far is it from the airport?

Are there safe areas to go out and about in Guatemala City itself?

Any suggestions for tours/sites to see in Quetzaltenango? I will be there about 4-5 days

Thanks!
