Drive to Tikal?

Jump to last reply

My husband and I arrive in GC on August 6 and fly out on Aug 17. This will be our first trip to Guatemala...we usually rent a car and just 'wander' around when we travel, although I do a lot of research and so have a general idea of where we want to go. So... I had originally thought we'd see some sites in Guatemala and then head into El Salvador. But after reading the Moon Guide to G and also many of this sites postings, I'm thinking we should stick to Guatemala and save El Salvador for next summer???

So, my question actually is- does anyone know if it's possible to drive from GC to Tikal?? And how long would it take? My tentative itinerary right now is:

8/6: Arrive GC, spend night and go right to Tikal on 8/7 (driving or flying...)
Aug 7/8: Tikal
Aug 9/10: Chichi and market
Aug 11/12: Drive around the Highlands area
Aug 13/14: Lake Atitlan (staying in Santiago)
Aug 15/16 Antigua
Aug 17: GC for departure

Does this sound doable? Are we missing anything we shouldn't miss? Any advice would be appreciated- Thanks!
