Lanquin is a town located in the southern portion of the Northern Lowlands in Guatemala. It is much hotter here than in the highlands as it is in the deep valleys between the mountains.
Most people get to Lanquin from Coban. The minibus costs Q25, and will include stops to pick up locals. A private shuttle will cost more. If coming from the other direction, buses from Sayaxché to Cobán pass the entrance to the village. Walking is the best way to get around town. As it is not too large, most things can be reached within a twenty minute walk. In addition, you can get anywhere via Tuk Tuks which can be seen on the streets sometimes as late as 11PM or you can try to hitch a ride in a local truck for a couple of quetzales.
