Services Available

We want to make your stay as comfortable as possible. We also want to help out locals. Here is a list of services that are available. They are provided by others but we are not looking for a cut. Feel free to contact these people directly. Stated another way, these folks have no business relationship with us — they are just people who have offered services.

  • Public buses to and from here are available. The short list is 0720 to Xela and some really early one to Guatemala City as well as one at 1430. (When I am going to Guatemala City I usually take the Xela bus and change in Los Encuentros. There is a direct bus from Guatemala City to here at 0830 from “Calle 41” (where all the buses heading west leave from). This option is usually faster (and much cheaper) than the shared vans which stop in Antigua. All the public buses leave from and arrive right by the public dock.
