Antigua Guatemala auto rickshaw or three-wheeler, tuk-tuk

Our high speed tuk tuk ride from San Antonio Aguas Calientes to Ciudad Vieja. The best joy ride a person can find for only 50Q. Then continuing on to Antigua Guatemala and home for the day to end our Saturday Travel Adventure.

An auto rickshaw or three-wheeler (tuk-tuk, trishaw, auto, rickshaw, autorick, bajaj, rick, tricycle, mototaxi, or baby taxi in popular parlance) is a usually three-wheeled cabin cycle for private use and as a vehicle for hire. It is a motorized version of the traditional pulled rickshaw or cycle rickshaw. Auto rickshaws are an essential form of urban transport in many developing countries, and a form of novelty transport in many Western countries.

In Antigua Guatemala this is a cheap form of basic taxi like transportation for about half of what a taxi would charge you a Tuk Tuk will take you.

My wife and I have seen many videos on-line about wild tuck tuck rides. Over the next 6 months watch for our library of Tuk Tuk adventures around Antigua Guatemala
