  • The public bus takes up to 6 hours from Antigua, so we don’t recommend it, but we can send you detailed instructions if you really want to do it.
  • Shuttle transfer From Antigua

  • Upon booking, we can arrange a shuttle from Antigua through daily from Antigua to El Paredón for Q.90 per person (approx $12 USD)
  • Private Transfer From Airport

  • We also arrange private shuttles with our own Paredón Surf House van. This is a door-to-door service meaning no lugging baggage across Antigua to meet the shuttle bus. We charge $100 flat fee up to 4 people from Antigua, and $140 flat fee up to 4 people from Guatemala City including the airport (2.5-3 hours).
    Advanced booking is always required for shared or private shuttle services.
