Using Uber in Antigua Guatemala Hobo Phil and Andy Lee Graham

Hi Andy
What are the chances of taking UBER from Guatemala City airport to either Antigua and/or Pana?


DebV

Andy, I just went to "UBER dot c o m" on reg laptop PC, no app, no iphone. Did some ride research calculating with UBER & Google maps:

Guatemala City Airport to Panajachel, Sololá:

478 - 652 Q = approx $65.00 to $87.00

141 or 178km = approx 3.75 to 4.25 hrs
--------------
Guatemala City Airport to Antigua Guatemala, Sacatepéquez:

154 - 219 Q = approx $21.00 to $30.00

35 - 39km = approx 1hr 40mins
--------------
Antigua Guatemala, Sacatepéquez Depart. to Panajachel, Sololá:

315 - 433 Q = approx $43.00 to $59.00

84 - 157km = approx 2.5 to 3.5 hrs

Guatemala to Antigua would be easy, you might have to wait for a long time for Pana. But, I just negotiate with Taxi drivers, around 75-100 USD to Pana.

If you have UBER on your smartphone / Android or Iphone, then you can speculate, and see if there are cars. You can find the prices, find the drivers, etc. All can be tested on the App, I am thinking maybe best to connect Credit Card or Paypal if we can, paypal is best. Amazing how many people just do not get it, we always need to have change, small money, local money, paying with dollars is a great way to triple the cost of fare.
