Panajachel lies at the edge of Lake Atitlán, in the Guatemalan Highlands. It is 147 Kilometres West of Guatemala City by road. La Aurora in Guatemala City is the closest international airport.
For transportation from the airport to your hotel and anywhere else beyond Lake Atitlan, we suggest you hire a Guatemalan tourist/travel service that offers door-to-door delivery and pick-up. Some travel services are more reliable than others. Reputable online sources can be obtained from our Tourist Services page.
If you choose to rent a car, take the Panamerican Highway (CA-1W) heading west to the Mexican border, a few Kilometres (miles) after Los Encuentros turn left at K 130 on Highway (RN-1) towards the town of Sololá and on to Panajachel.
