Voice of Travelers to Guatemala City

Juan and Bruna from Colombia

Hi, I’m Juan from Bogota. I just came back from a great holiday in Guatemala City. My holiday almost didn’t happen, because my girlfriend Bruna and I were late for our Avianca flight. We arrived at the airport in time, but for some reason that day the queues to security and passport control were particularly long. When we finally reached our gate, we were told we were too late. We were so upset about losing our tickets, but the lady at the gate directed us to go to the ticket counter and explain our situation. The lady at the Avianca ticket counter was very helpful and could rebook our tickets for a later flight to Guatemala City. Thankfully, we had to only pay the difference in ticket cost instead of buying whole new tickets. The flight to Guatemala City was great, they even served us an alcoholic drink.

Ana from United States

Hi, my name is Ana and I live in Houston. Recently I came back from visiting my family in Guatemala City. I bought my flight ticket with AirCanada. The plane arrived on time and cabin staff were polite. I think my ticket was good value for money. I liked having a personal, touch-screen TV on board. It kept me entertained during the flight. I would happily buy an AirCanada ticket again. In Guatemala City I spent time with my family I visited Mapa en Relieve, a massive relief map of Guatemala City, built in 1904. It is so big it has to be viewed from an observation tower. Another Guatemala City attraction which I love, and always get an entry ticket to, is the Ixchel Museum of National Costumes.
