Upon arrival in Guatemala, Mission Guatemala will provide all in-country transportation and logistics. However, each team member is responsible for purchasing his or her own airfare in and out of Guatemala City (GUA). Whenever possible, we encourage teams to travel as a group, arriving and departing at the same time. (See Possible Extra Fees below.)
Mission Guatemala will pick your team up from the airport and provide a drop-off to the airport at the end of your trip.
Please see the Mission Trip Planning Guide for more information about planning your trip to Guatemala.
