Trustworthy and personalised Guatemala City airport taxis

Guatemala City, called just Guate by the locals, is a place that combines indigenous and colonial charm. Home to some of the most remarkable attractions from the Maya era, the capital of Guatemala will lure you into a journey to the best Central America has to offer.

All international flights land at Guatemala City Airport (La Aurora International – GUA). The airport is located on the edge of the city centre, more specifically 6km from downtown. From there, nothing beats a Guatemala Airport shuttle in terms of ease and convenience for the transfer to your hotel or apartment.

Pre-booking your Guatemala City Airport taxi ride with a company specialising in personalised transfers such as Welcome Pickups ensures you and your travel companions’ total peace of mind. Plus – it takes 60 seconds of your time on the user-friendly Welcome app or online!

As soon as you set foot on Guatemalan soil, one of our trained, English-speaking drivers will be waiting for you at arrivals, holding a sign with your name. After a warm meet and greet, they’ll escort you to your pre-booked vehicle and help you with your luggage. Sit in the back, relax and focus on the beautiful days you have ahead. And on your way to your accommodation, besides admiring the surroundings, take advantage of your driver’s local knowledge to learn all about the lesser-known places you shouldn’t miss during your stay in the city.

Directions for your taxi from Guatemala Airport

La Aurora International Airport is very close to the city centre; it’s a comfortable 5-6km ride. Depending on traffic conditions, your accommodation is roughly 10 minutes away.

After exiting the airport concourse, your driver will head north on 9 Avenida towards 10 Calle. At the roundabout, they will take the first turn right and keep driving for 1.2km until they reach an intersection. There, they will turn right to land on Boulevard Liberación/Pan-American Highway/CA-1. Staying on Boulevard Liberación for another kilometre, they will then steep turn left and continue onto Avenida Las Americas. Afterwards, they will be in the city centre area and use local roads to take you to your exact destination.

What's the cost of an airport taxi in Guatemala City?

Guatemala City Airport taxis are metered. So, fares result from the distance and time travelled. However, it’s not a rare instance for drivers to not turn the meter on. In that case, ensure you agree on the price before the ride starts. On average, you can expect to pay around €7-10 (GTQ 61-87) for that journey.

There’s a way to avoid the final rate uncertainty and benefit from a competitive flat-rate fare; that’s by pre-booking your Guatemala Airport shuttle with Welcome Pickups. Booking takes less than a couple of minutes, and cancellations are flexible.

Frequently asked questions

Do I need to pre-book my Guatemala Airport shuttle?

No, pre-booking your Guatemala City Airport taxi is not a necessity. Outside the terminal is a rank with taxis 24/7, ready to board passengers and take them to their destination downtown. Yet, if you decide to pre-book with a reliable company such as Welcome Pickups, you can benefit from a competitive flat fare, complete personalisation and many other benefits.

Do Guatemala City Airport taxis operate with fixed fares?

In principle, taxis at Guatemala Airport are metered. However, in many cases, drivers do not turn on the meter and ask for a fixed fare instead. If that happens, ensure you agree on the final fare with the driver before the ride starts to avoid surprises and hidden costs.

What happens if my flight is delayed?

With Welcome Pickups, complaints or no-shows due to flight delays are a thing of the past! All of our handpicked, Welcome-trained drivers are equipped with a live flight-update system. So, if anything changes in your flight schedule, this won’t affect your transfer. Your driver will adjust the pickup time accordingly and will meet you as soon as you arrive.
