hi Don; this is Rodd, the Hatman in the USA. I'm flying into Guatemala City next Tuesday, 1 week from now. My most recent info is that travel between departments is OK, but it seems like buses have to stay at 50% cap. I hope my info is right because I'm heading to Tecojate, on the Pacific coast, soon after landing. try reaching me at if you can

My husband and I are flying to Guatemala City in the middle of March. My daughter and her family are living there. Presently, you need to bring written verification that you have tested negatively for Covid.

hi Don; this is Rodd. I rode a chicken bus several times to Nueva Concepcion and Tecojate fron GC. cost varied from Q60 to Q90, I guess depending on how ethical the bus guy was and maybe how rich you look. many seats were "X" out so you couldn't sit there and buses were fairly empty.
