    Travel by taxi from teh airport to Guatemala. Approx $30, agree a price first, you can pay in dollars. Exchange rate approx 7.5 Quetzales to 1 dollar. The drivers are usually very helpful and friendly, keen to chat if you want to practise your espanol. Just be vigilent but not paranoid. You'll love it! Antigua is more expesnive that other places as very touristy these days buit compared to US or Uk its cheap! Enjoy :)
