We are planning a surfing trip to Guatemal during X-mas for two weeks.

Could anyone tell me whether I should rent a car or hire private transportation co. for driving around country.

1. Re: Guatemala

I drive a rental car every time I go to guatemala even though lots of people that've never done it would advice you against it. I've been able to get excellent service and good deals from local rental companies. Back in October I got a weekly rate of $22 a day on a Mitsubishi Lancer with everyting included. Of course I had to call several companies until I got a good deal. Driving your own car around the country is a pleasure with plenty of gas stations on the roads. You have bad drivers everywhere in the world specially here in south florida. Roads are fine and you fine good places to eat and stay. You don't need a fourh wheel drive in guatemala. If you need additional information come back and ask. Good luck.
