Traveling to Hotel Backpackers by bus


Coming from Guatemala City

When planning your trip, you will want to fly into the Aurora International Airport in Guatemala City. There are several bus companies that run services from Guatemala City to Rio Dulce and Flores to Rio Dulce. You can take a taxi from the airport to Litegua or Fuente del Norte offices.

Litegua offers a good service. Their office in Guatemala City is located at 15 Calle 10-40 in Zona 1.  It takes approximately 6 hours and currently costs Q80. Ask the bus driver to drop you off before the bridge to save walking back across it! You can check departure times at this links: www.litegua.com/horarios.html



Traveling to Hotel Backpackers from Fronteras


Coming from Fronteras

The Litegua offices are located at the north end of the bridge. It is about a 15 - 20 minute walk to the Hotel from here.  Head across the bridge (you can see the Hotel over the left hand side from the bridge) and take the steps on the left at the south end.  Walk back along the road at the bottom of the steps towards the river.

A taxi from Fronteras will cost between Q10 and Q20.  A tuc tuc will cost Q5 per person and there are many.
