Flights to Guatemala City

Flight options to Guatemala are relatively limited with just one international airport in the country, Guatemala City, and no direct flights from the UK.

Most visitors from the UK fly to Guatemala via the USA although it is also possible to fly via Madrid. Please note that, if flying via the USA, UK passports holders will require an ESTA.

As with flights to the Caribbean & Florida, most outbound flights operate during the day, with return flights operating overnight.

For clients interested in a Multi Country holiday, it is possible (for example) to fly via Miami into Guatemala City and then return from Cancun or Belize to the UK, again via Miami.
