If flying from outside of the country, the most effective and practical way to get to San Marcos is by means of plane then either bus or car. I recomend flying into Guatemala City (known by the locals as 'Guate') then proceed to drive 3.5 hours. The major highways that are in route are mostly updated. When exiting, take caution to the windy, dirt road that leads to the small town of San Marcos.

Instead of driving, take one of the shuttle vans that wait outside the arrivals area at the airport. They're very affordable and will take you to Antigua at most hours of the day and evening, and you can connect there with a shuttle to San Pedro or Panajachel that day if early enough (before 2-ish?) or the next day, and boat to San Marcos from SP or Pana.

There is also a shuttle from San Christobal, Mexico. The shuttle provides a traveler with a rich cultural experiance by traveling in what the locals refer to as a "chicken bus". The "chicken bus" will drop you off in Panajachel and from there you can take a luancha (small boat) to San Marcos.

There are also plenty of mini-van shuttles from San Cristobal to Panajachel, very affordable, much more comfortable than a chicken bus.
 
  
 
If traveling from Antigua, a popular tourist destination in Guatemala, there are shuttles leaving several; times a day to Panajachel, where it is easy to catch a public ''lancha'', or boat, to San Marcos. It costs about Q70/Q90 depending on the time you want to leave.
