best way to get from Flores airport to Tikal


What is the best way to get from Flores airport to Tikal to one of their lodges? We will be arriving on an early flight from Guate City and I am wondering whether it is safe to get one of their taxis/shuttle buses or shall we just book a transport through Tikal Inn where we will be staying? How much shall we expect to pay for the 2 of us?

I can't help on the cost but your options are to prearrange through Tikal Inn or a transport agency, select a taxi or shuttle on the fly, or arrange a guided tour for that morning that includes transportation. I've done all of those at some point but either years ago or with a group in tow so my cost history won't help you.

Lots of negative posts here and on other forums about San Juan travel so I'd avoid them. Below are links to an ultra-fantastic guide and a transportation company I've used. Have a great visit, however you get there!



My photos with blog and travelogue links on the main page of each collection are below in case you're interested. Happy trails!
