1.Tikal 2 day Tour-Which Option?
2.Bag Storage During Chichicastengo Stop.
We are finally going in ten days.
Our itinerary is:Antigua-4 days, Penajachel-2, Chichicastenango-1, Tikal-2, G.C.-1.
We are going to take the Turansa Tikal 2 day tour from Antigua.
They offer 3 options and we would like your opinion on which to choose.
All options cover all ground and air transport, 1 night in the Jungle Lodge and a 3 hour guided visit to the park on the first morning.The options include in addition:
1. Lunch first day and breakfast second day. Package cost is $US315/pp.
2. No meals, early morning guided visit to park on second day; $US334/PP.
3. Lunch first day, dinner first day, breakfast second day, lunch second day, early morning guided visit to park on second day; $US370/PP.
We think that the options 2 and 3 are most interesting since they offer us two days of guided tours.
This appears to be reasonable since the park entrance fee is now $US20.
We have read many negative comments on the Hotel Restaurant and we are thinking of, perhaps, taking option 2 and getting food on the spot.
On a Sunday morning we will be travelling by shuttle from Panajachel to Chichicastenango for market day, arriving about 9-10AM.
We will then be visiting the market and should leave, with another shuttle to Antigua, About 2-3PM.
Where can we store our bags while visiting the market?
Is it safe to visit the Mayan shrine, Pascal Abaj?
Thank you all for the useful information on this forum.
