Getting To And Away

There are two bus companies at the Fronteras end of the bridge, Fuentes del Norte on the left and Litegua Pullmans on the right. Buses go Guatemala City (five-six hours, about every 30 minutes), Puerto Barrios (two hours every hour), Poptún in Peten (one hour 45 minutes, every 30 minutes), Flores (3 hours 30 minutes, every 30 minutes).

Mini buses also go to El Estor, passing Finca El Paraiso, every hour. You can get also get a bus to mini-bus tours to Semuc Champey and Quiriguá, 175Q/$22 – ask at Sundog for info.

Public ‘collectivo’ boats leave from the lancha station (take the road underneath the bridge down towards the water, passed Bruno’s on the right) and go to Livingston Q125 one way, Q200 return. The trip takes about two hours, most passing by the Castillo de San Felipe, hot-springs with a café and toilets, and sometimes will stop at Ak’ Tenamit, and boats leave at 9.30a.m. and 1.30p.m. You can also hire private boats and a good place to ask is at Bruno’s.
