Semana Santa in Guatemala - flying out on Good Friday :(

Jump to last reply

Hi there, I will unexpectedly be in Guatemala for 2 weeks including part of Holy Week (Semana Santa). I have been reading up and it sounds like Good Friday is the biggest day of the celebrations, but unfortunately that's the day I will have to fly out! No way around it.

For those who know the process well, can you tell me whether I might still get to see some of the floral carpets on Thursday? I hear that's the day they put them together. Will I need to stay up all night?

I'm also wondering whether I should expect problems or serious delays getting to the airport that morning (Friday April 2 around 7am).

Thanks for the advice!
