Currently, there are no vaccinations required to visit Guatemala. However, we recommend that you make sure that your Tetanus vaccination is up to date. Also, if you are traveling during the months of November-April, a flu vaccine is recommended to protect the Central Americans that you will be ministering to. See for updated COVID-19 travel requirements. 

We use Delta, United or American Airlines.

Bring only the money that you will need for souvenirs, snacks, church offerings, or other incidentals. Most people bring $50-$100 spending money, depending on what you will want to spend. All money must be new, crisp bills to be exchanged into Quetzals, Guatemalan currency. It is recommended that you advise your bank that you will be traveling and carry your debit card rather than cash. More info on this is located in the mission guide.

A good rule of thumb: Don’t take anything that you would hate to lose. Don’t bring anything flashy. Most married women will leave their engagement rings at home and we encourage you to do so.

At times, yes. We do have access to wifi internet, though it is not always totally reliable. We will give you an emergency contact number to leave with your family in case an emergency arises at home. We recommend that you tell your family that no news is good news.

We recommend that you talk with others who have flown before. They can help guide you in the process.

Most likely, you will meet and talk with your travel host months in advance of your trip. A team meeting will occur at least a month before your scheduled departure.
