final itinerary

Jump to last reply

I appreciate all the help given by all of you wise posters. So, here is the final itinerary for our quick trip. If anyone thinks we need to change something, please let u know. Otherwise, I promise to post our trip report upon our return!

Jan. 28 O'Hare to MIA/overnight at airport hotel.
Jan. 29 MIA to Belize City/transfer to Ambergis Caye.
Jan. 30 Ambergis Caye
Jan. 31 Ambergis Caye
Feb.1 Drive to Du Plooy's Jungle Lodge, San Ignacio, with a stop at the Belize Zoo on the way.
Feb. 2 Du Plooy's
Feb. 3 Du Plooy's
Feb. 4 Cross border to Guatemala, into Tikal, overnight At Tikal Inn. Afternoon to explore the ruins.
Feb. 5 Explore the ruins until early afternoon, and catch a late afternoon flight to Guatemala City (Unfortunately probably no time to look around Flores). From GUA, go to Antigua, arriving later in the evening.
Feb. 6 Antigua.
Feb. 7 Explore Antigua until late afternoon, and fly back to GUA, with overnight by the airport.
Feb. 8 Leave early morning for return to O'Hare.

A few questions:
Any ideas on where to stay overnight close to the Guatemala airport?
Some suggested one day less at the jungle lodge, with one day more in either Tikal or Antigua. Is this a better idea?
Any other advice? Bring it on.
Thanks in advance!
