Cheap Flights to Guatemala

Mayan temples, towering volcanos, and lush rainforest abound in Central America's Guatemala. Famous for its natural bounty and amazingly diverse landscape, this tiny country has tons to offer international travellers. Most visitors fly here to visit El Mirador, the former beating heart of Mayan civilization, and other pyramid ruins like Zaculeu, Yaxha, and Tikal. Overall, Guatemala is a wonderful choice for adventurous tourists, interested in visiting a less explored destination than Mexico.

Best Time to Book a Flight to Guatemala

Guatemala's high season for tourism lasts between December and April, and then picks up again in June and July. These months are marked by enjoyable weather and lots of sunshine, although hotel prices can skyrocket around Easter, Christmas, and New Year's Eve. If you want to beat the crowds, check out Guatemala from April into September. While the rainfall levels increase during this period, rates on accommodations are low and popular sites, like the Mayan ruins, won't be crawling with tourists. October is Hurricane Season, so it's best to avoid the country during this month, although the cooler temperatures do make trekking through the Highlands easier.

Main Airports in Guatemala

La Aurora International Airport

Situated in the capital of Guatemala City, La Aurora International Airport (GUA) is Guatemala's biggest, busiest, and most important airport. This modern, state-of-art airport is located 6.4 km south of the downtown core and another 25 km away from Antigua Guatemala. On-site, you'll find two terminals, Central and North, which handle flights from Mexico, USA, Europe, Central America, and South America. Most likely, if you book a trip from Canada to Guatemala, you'll decide to fly to GUA. This airport is better at accommodating large airplanes and offers more amenities for travellers, including boutiques, duty-free shopping, and a few dining establishments.

Mundo Maya International Airport

Currently under expansion, Mundo Maya International Airport (FRS) is another important airport in Guatemala, which is located in Santa Elena suburb, just outside of Flores. While only hosting a handful of airlines, FRS is a central hub for domestic travel, including bringing travellers into Guatemala City and Mayan sites, Yaxhá and Tikal. This airport also hosts an international route to Belize City. Another perk, Mundo Maya International Airport isn't a very busy place in terms of passenger traffic, only hosting 111,118 passengers in 2016.
