Not worth the grueling trip from Antigua and back. If you are heading onto Flores from Lanquin than I guess it might make sense (flight from Guate to Flores is quick and painless). The cave tour was dangerous and not that impressive. Fun fact: the owner of the property that the caves are situated on does not let Maya perform ceremonies there anymore! The turquoise pools in the park were beautiful (exactly like Agua Azul in Chiapas, Mexico) but then I got crammed back into the back of a pickup truck with too many other people all standing and holding onto a metal cage (thanks Zephyr Lodge!). The road was terrible and it was very uncomfortable. 10 kilometers does not sound like much, but it is. The trip from Antigua to Lanquin took 8.5 hours and it took 10 hours to return (travel agency said 6-7). Tikal and Lake Atitlan are way more impressive, fun and easily accessible.
