I am traveling to Guatemala from December 20th, 2013- January 5th, 2013. Exactly two weeks in country. I have a route planned in my head, but would like to get some input on it from people who have been there. I would like to know if the route is actually doable, and if you have any better recommendations, or perhaps must see or do's, along the way.
I land into Guatemala City on a Friday at 4:30pm and plan to go straight to Antigua for the night.
Saturday morning go to La Iguana (Santa Cruz) on lake Atitlan. I am hoping that two and a half days will be enough(?).
Tuesday morning, I would like to travel to Quetzaltenango, and be there for 3 days.
I would like to travel to Tikal from there via Champey, but am not sure what the best way to do that is yet.
My goal in to cross the boarder into Belize on the 30th, so I can be there for New Years eve, and then head back to Antigua on Jan 1st, and be there until the end of my trip on the 5th (very early in the morning).
Would LOVE to get any input, advice, suggestions, recommendations, etc., etc., ...
Thank you very much,
