Next August I intend on being in Guatemala.
What is the best way to get there (from Australia)?
Is there a much cheaper way than Flying into USA then heading South? can I land directly from Australia? it looks so much shorter on the map.
Also I understand that as I am going to Guatemala for sport I should take my time going into the mountains. What is the best way to avoid altitude sickness? I will be headed for Panajachel. Just making the accent over 3 days enough? or should I take a week before competing in sport?
