Atitlan/Antigua and itinerary

Jump to last reply

I'm a little embarrassed to post a 3rd version of an itinerary, but, since this trip is much shorter than usual, I'm having difficulty paring down the number of stops. I think we are set.

Jan 28 ORD-MIA overnight
Jan 29 MIA-BZE/transfer to DuPlooy's
Jan 30 DuPlooy's
Jan 31 DuPlooy's
Feb 1 Du Plooy's
Feb 2 Transfer to Tikal Inn
Feb 3 Day to explore Tikal with overnight in Flores
Feb 4 Flores-GUA/transfer to Antigua
Feb 5 Antigua
Feb 6 Antigua
Feb 7 Antigua (or GUA airport hotel, because the flight leaves at 6 am the next day)
Feb 8 GUA-MIA-ORD

My question concerns Antigua. Is this too long? Besides exploring the town and enjoying the atmosphere, we'd like to go up the volcano - loved this in New Zealand - take the Elizabeth Bell tour, and possibly visit Lake Atitlan (this might be too much for a day trip, though other posters have done this). Should a couple night be at Atitlan? I feel like that might be a bit too much running around.
