Catch a Chicken Bus to Lake Atitlan from Guatemala City
by Mattfromtexas about 9 years ago

If you are trying to get from Guatemala City to San Pedro, San Marcos, Panajachel, or other Lake Atitlan town, you need to head to the 'Treboli' area of Guatemala City. Any taxi should be able to get you there. There isn't a bus terminal or anything like that... just a street with about 50 buses parked on either side of the street. Chicken buses run every half hour or so from here for Q.30.
