My family and I are looking into travelling to Gautemala from the US Northeast, leaving on Christmas and returning Jan2.
Using those dates we have non stops available as well are very reasonable costs compared to any other date combinations.
However I was wondering if we arrive on Christmas day, will anything be open, will there be services to, for example, take us from the airport to Antigua or fly to Tikal (haven't yet decided on the itinerary) but we only have 7-8 days.
Same questions re Jan 2.
Does the country shut down, slow down during that week? Would booking guides, tours be difficult during that week?
