After flying from Chicago O'Hare International Airport (ORD) to La Aurora International Airport (GUA) and checking into a local hotel, guests have the chance to get an overall feel of the city by taking a guided tour. The region attracts those on business but is more commonly seen as a vacation destination for travelers.
The metropolis boasts numerous museums, amusement parks and a zoo. The Museo Ixchel del Traje Indigena presents galleries and exhibits, based on the history of fabrics and textiles made by native peoples. Other facilities include the National Museum of Archaeology and Ethnology and the Museo del Ferrocarril.
Upon arrival, drive your rental car along Highway 10 north into the newer part of Guatemala City. Get settled in one of the city's quaint yet modern lodging options and grab a meal at one of the more than one dozen restaurants that serve Chinese, French, Latin American or Spanish cuisine options; try Tartines for a taste of France.
After eating, indulge in a pleasant stroll through the Botanical Gardens, where you can see a unique 3D relief map that provides a layout and detailed features of the country.
Flying from Chicago to historic Guatemala City takes just under four and a half hours. You can step back in time to get a glimpse of ancient civilizations by visiting the Kaminaljuy ruins. The pre-Columbian Mayan site is located within the city limits.
