Driving in Guatemala can be an adventure filled with diverse landscapes, from picturesque highlands to lush rainforests. The distance between international airports and major cities varies; for instance, from La Aurora International Airport in Guatemala City to the colonial town of Antigua, it's approximately 40 kilometers (25 miles). While roads connecting major cities are generally paved, some rural areas may have unpaved or rough roads, so it's advisable to choose a suitable vehicle, such as a 4x4, for certain routes.
When driving in Guatemala, it's important to follow local road regulations. The country practices right-hand driving, and seat belts are mandatory for all passengers. Speed limits are usually posted in kilometers per hour (km/h), with limits of 60 km/h in urban areas and 90 km/h on highways. Guatemala enforces strict laws against drunk driving, and the blood alcohol limit is 0.08%. Mobile phone usage while driving is also prohibited unless you have a hands-free device. One of the key benefits of renting a car in Guatemala is the freedom to explore its hidden gems, including ancient Mayan ruins, serene lakes, and vibrant indigenous markets, all while enjoying the stunning natural beauty of this Central American country at your own pace.
