Wondering if we can travel from Antigua to Lanquin on Dec.24

Hello my wife and I are hoping to travel from Antigua to Lanquin on Dec 24 by bus. I am wondering if that is an insane idea. Will we be able to hie a bus. I know that the 24th is a bigger deal than the 25th down there. Any info? Much appreciated.

Cheers!

HI there. Trying to be realistic I have to tell you that it's not going to be easy. For starters there are no direct buses from Antigua to Lanquin. Even on a normal day from Antigua you're looking at arriving in Coban late in the afternoon because you have to take Monja Blanca at the Metra Norte bus terminal in gutemala city. And then you still have to catch transportation in Coban to Lanquin which I doubt you can still catch real late in the evening. So, on the 24th you can expect the amount of people travelling with the whole family in-tow trying to get to their final destination before midnight to celebrate noche buena to be more than during normal days. Trying to book a shuttle in advance would be your best option. This website has lots of useful information on hotels and transportation in Coban www.cobanav.net Good luck.

I agree; if you're serious about making that massive trip on such a special day, hiring a private driver might be the most realistic way to go. Here are 2 transportation providers I’ve been pleased with in Guatemala for share shuttles, private transfers, and flight arrangements:
