After spending almost 3 weeks in San Pedro, Lago Atitlan, it was time to head back to Mexico and check out the southern regions we had missed by flying into Guatemala. Slightly lacking confidence in chicken buses, we chose to travel by shuttle.
Firstly, we took a ferry from San Pedro to Panajachel for Q20 per person and then the shuttle (USD $30 per person) to San Cristobal de las Casas, Mexico. The shuttle will take you as far as the Guatemalan border and another picks you up, driving you to the Mexican border and continues from there.
There are no fees to exit Guatemala or to enter Mexico. A tourist visa will be granted for a maximum 180 days from the first point of entry.
