Need safe transport to Antigua?

We provide a safe and reliable private transportation directly to Antigua Guatemala. The rate for this private transportation is US$40 and we will drive you directly from Guatemalan City Airport to Antigua.

You will notice when you arrive at the Guatemala City Airpost that there are different prices for transportation, some as low as $15. These kind of transportation is not private or safe, they don't leave at the time you want or need, they have certain schedules, they come with other people in the van, they don't wait if the plane comes delayed, you don't come directly to your destination, you have to wait at the airport until other passengers will come and that can be long. From Antigua to Airport these cheaper transportation are not private, the driver passes from one place to other picking up more passengers, sometimes passengers are not ready or driver does not find the address of the passengers, sometimes one of the passengers will miss the flight or the driver will forget you and you have to call a taxi.
