La Aurora International Airport (GUA)

Located 4 miles south of Guatemala City, La Aurora International Airport is the main airport of Guatemala. The Airport has two terminals—central and north—which serve over 3 million annual passengers to destinations in the United States, Central America, and South America, making it the fourth busiest airport in Central America. Built during WWII and used by the Americans, it was handed over to Guatemalan officials in 1949. An expansion in 2007 saw an increase in gates and concourses to accommodate rising passenger counts. It is also currently undergoing a new expansion and modernization process, which includes plans to repave the runway and to modernize its illumination system.

During the wet season, running from May to October, rains result in muddy grounds, making sightseeing more difficult.

Guatemala Travel Guide
