Getting Around

Taxis normally wait by the market, opposite Pollo Camperero on Calzada las Palmas, and can be hired to visit Abaj Takalik or the fincas. Alternatively your hotel will be able to arrange one. Few tourists visit here so prices are not set in stone. On the plus side, it is less likely you will be ripped off. However, agree all prices and times first.

Tuk-tuks potter around the town and cost $0.60 for a trip.

Buses for El Astinal (Abaj Takalik) depart every half hour from behind the warren of a marketplace and cost $0.60. Ask repeatedly and you’ll find it eventually.

A daily bus at 11 a.m. to Comunidad Alianza departs from the same place (it departs the Comunidad at 6.30 a.m.). If finding it is an unwanted mission, take a tuk-tuk to Quatro Caminos (the Pacific Highway junction) and wait for it there or try and hitch a lift.
