Critique my Guatemala Itinerary, please

Jump to last reply

My husband and I are traveling to Guatemala December 30 through January 14. That gives us about 14 full days that are not dedicated to international flights.

We love hiking, biking, nature and culture. Does this itinerary sound like we are spending a reasonable amount of time in each location? Any suggestions would be most appreciated:

Day 1 - Arrive late night in Guat. City, go directly to Antigua

Days 2-6 - (5 full days) - Antigua and hiking the volcanoes probably to include overnight on the volcanoes.

Day 7 - Transport to Lake Atitlan (expected driving time 2.5 hours realistic?). Afternoon in city/town near Lake Atitlan

Days 8-9 (2 full days) - Explore Atitlan and Chichicatenango

Day 10 - Leave Atitlan early a.m.; day in Guatemala city, depart late night to go to Tikal by overnight bus.

Days 11-13 (3 full days) - Tikal and surrounding

day 14 - Return to Guatemala city (haven't figured out the logistics yet on this with the overnight bus)

Day 15: early A.m. flight out.

Thanks!
