3There's a Thai restaurant or two in Antigua, or at least restaurants that have Thai dishes on their menu. Maybe they will sell you the ingrediants you need if you can't find otherwise. That or just take some small containers of ingrediants, with the liquid ones inside a plastic ziplock bag, in your checked luggage.

4Are you crazy? C'mon, being in Antigua, safe already, and coming back to Guatemala City to buy anything? But, I hope there is service with Dunbar cars, Blackwater security and helicopters around, so that normal people can shop in the war zone of GC. Kidding. There are some shops here in GC to respond to your needs. But, try also local cuisine. Broaden your tongue delights. Enjoy Guate, for God's sake.

5Actually one doesn't go to Guatemala (or anywhere else in CA) for the food.

forget the "Thai" resto in Antigua it bears no resemblance to Asian food and is atrocious. The Chinese supermarket mentioned (and there are others) stocks most things you'll need including nam pla and curry paste. There are delis too that stock Asian goods. No need to bring.

7The Asian supply stores in Guate City that I know of and frequent are called Agrochina and "228" and there within a block of each other at the above address near the Mateo Flores stadium. There are shops in Antigua that sell some of the same stuff but at twice the price. One of those is a block north of the parque central and I forget it's name. Might be something like "Deliciosa.?" I have an Asian focused restaurant in San Pedro la Laguna and we go to the city once a month or once every 2 months to do a buying run at the above 2 places and you can get all that you need and a whole lot more.

8Thanks for the responses.... even the funny ones.
Mike.... broaden my tongue delights.... that is funny. I don't plan to
eat out for 2 1/2 months and because I do like to broaden my tongue
delights.... why not mix some different spices in my market purchases !
Thanks for the leads in GC . I will be in Antigua for a month so it wouldn't
hurt to venture into GC for a shopping trip.
Mojo.. I'll have to check out your restaurant in SanP as I will be there several weeks. Thanks for the tips.

9Miss...for Thai food go to Thailand. With so much delicious food in Guatemala and you want to eat Thai? Common...I am from Guatemala and traveled to Thailand but I didn't bring any single Guatemalan ingredient and I loved Thai food. Both foods are so different but so rich on their own essence.
A true traveler just let her/himself go with flow and enjoy...
