Transfer from Antigua to Panajachel

After arriving in Guatemala by air, the majority of travelers move directly to Antigua.  Antigua is the number one tourist destination in Guatemala.  It has the widest variety in hotel accommodation, restaurants, bars etc.  You can basically find any tourism related service in any price range.  All options are available, from the backpack hostel up to upscale luxury boutique hotel.

Once the sightseeing in the colonial town has finished, travelers will head for the Western Highlands of Guatemala because this area is still one of the more traditional parts of the country.  The most important destination in the Highlands is Lake Atitlan.  The lakeside town of Panajachel is the number one choice to use a a base to explore the lake.

To transfer from Antigua to Panajachel you have 3 options.  The first transfer option consists of using Guatemalan public transportation, also known as the chicken buses.  Without a doubt, local buses are the cheapest alternative.  However it might also be time consuming because of the frequent stops along the road.  Plus keep in mind that this is also the least safe option.

Tourism shuttle buses is another and safer way to reach Panajachel from Antigua.  Many smaller agencies in Antigua work together to provide a collective shuttle service to Pana at regular and fixed times.  Walking through Antigua, it’s easy to spot the latest time table for this service.

Private transfer Antigua to Panajachel

Guatemala offers a wide array of fascinating destinations that will satisfy even the most difficult to please.

Lake Atitlan

Guatemala’s strongest asset is the perfect combination of history, culture and nature.
Spanish colonial heritage from the 16th and 17th century is preserved in towns such as La Antigua Guatemala.  The town was declared a World Heritage Monument by UNESCO.

Located in the northern jungle region of Guatemala, there are an incredible number of Maya sites. Some of these Maya ruins are easily accessible such as Tikal and Yaxha. Visiting other Maya ruins will require a bit more effort and you might need a four wheel drive and or motorboat to reach them.

The Western Highlands still has an authentic Maya population that is attached to their traditions and way of living from generations back.

The entire Pacific Coast is one black sand beach, almost untouched by development.

Guatemala’s strong potential is reflected in the statistics related to the tourism industry. The number of visitors for the first 4 months of 2015 is up by almost 4% compared to the same period in 2014.

This trend will no doubt continue for the remainder of the year and should be even stronger in 2016.
