Sounds good to me. We had a couple of weeks, but I have never heard of Monterrico.....

We sort of did the Lake Atitlan, etc.

Tell me about Monterrico.

It works, but it doesn't give you much time any place -- only one full day in Antigua and one full day in Monterrico.

Unless you absolutely must get time on a beach, I'd skip Monterrico and go to the lake.

Hi there, unless you've already paid for your plane ticket to Flores/Tikal. I would take the overnight deluxe bus to Flores, save yourself all that money and a hotel night and get to Flores first thing monday morning and catch a shuttle to tikal. Spend that whole day spend the night at one of the hotels in Flores enjoying the lake www.corpetur.com. And on the way back spend a day sipping a drink and a good meal along the rio dulce www.mayaparadise.com or www.riodulcechisme.com which in my opinion is nicer than monterrico.Those buses are safe www.litegua.com Then go to Antigua for the rest of the trip. If you get to Monterrico on a weekday you'll be disappointed as the place looks like ghost town. All the partying there happens on the weekends.
