We are planning our fourth trip to Guatemala. The other trips had to be in August, because I was teaching, but now we are retired we can go when we want! We are struggling to decide whether to go in October/November this year, or wait until spring next year, maybe just after Easter - late April/early May. We will visit Antigua, Lake Atitlan and other places near there, and maybe Flores and Tikal. Weather-wise, which would be the best time? I read words like 'hurricane season' and 'mudslides', but I'm not sure how relevant these things are to the places we plan to visit, nor exactly when they may happen.
