Visiting Guatemala in April

I will be in Guatemala city April 26 and wanted some advice on where to stay and where to go while there.

I only have a few days before the rest of our mission team arrives. I have been to Guatemala before and seen some the sights like Antigua, The Mercado Central etc.

I'm planning on staying at The Grand Tikal hotel , which they say it is close to shopping malls and restaurants.

My plans are to check out the night life in Guatemala City on Sat 26,on Sunday 27 i want to visit Antigua and maybe spend the night there. Monday 28 back to Guatemala City see the rest of the city.

For shopping, restaurants, and nightlife in GC, I think you'd be better off in Zone 10 (la zona viva) than at Tikal Futura, and you'd be closer to the two museums in Zone 10 as well. There's plenty of hotels there on a par with Tikal Futura.

My favorite place to stay is the Hotel Pan American. It is an older classy hotel. Not steel and glass like the new ones. It is extremely comfortable and safe (armed guard at door). The food is the best in the capitol. You would probably enjoy the nightlife in Zona 1.
