New International Airport on Guatemala’s Pacific Coast

Construction was completed on a new international airport south of Retalhuleu this week. International flights from Central America and Mexico will commence next month. This city is on the way to Mexico along the northwest Pacific coast.

Now travelers going to the lake can fly into Reu, as it’s called, and take a Pullman bus and chicken bus to Santiago in five hours for about Q100. This will also turn the area into a booming tourism market. There are black sand beaches, Mayan and Olmec ruins, a water park and other attractions on the Florida-like Pacific coast.
