The sisters were dispatched on a plane to Costa Rica from the La Aurora International Airport in the Guatemalan capital in a simultaneous extradition process, said SP spokesman Rudy Esquivel.
The women were identified as Mendez, aged 33 and 37, who were kept in prison in Cobán, in the north of the country.
