finally booked trip to guatemala...add'l advice needed

Jump to last reply

so, after talking about travel to guatemala for the last 3 yrs i have finally booked a vacation! i did book through adventure life travel because it is just my girlfriend and i while our husbands are on a golf trip...i know i could have saved money doing it on my own, but i like their agency as well as the "safety" aspect of having a guide part time and transport between places. soooo....any advice on our free day in antigua??? we will be doing arrival on friday, oct. 29th (antigua) w/ nothing planned...free day antigua on 30th, the lake w/ chichi on 31st and 1st (day of the dead...) return to antigua later on 1st and 2nd (probably more free time) and then tikal/flores on 3rd and 4th, guatemala city very late on 5th before flying out the 6th.
i received a link from someone on my post on europe forum when trying to decide where to go, regarding crime in guatemala.....seems to be primarily in guatemala city...think they were trying to freak me out?
