First time to Guatemala --itinerary advice requestedm

Jump to last reply

First trip to Guatemala (end of April) and would appreciate any suggestions on how to split the time between destinations, as well as best way to get around.

We fly in on a Saturday (land in GUA around noon) and depart GUA at 11:30 am the following Saturday.

We definitely want to hit the following places: 

Lake Atitlan

Does it make sense to spend our first half day and night in Antigua and then travel on to the next destination the following day?
Logistically, is it easier to go from Antigua to Lake Atitlan or head to Tikal straightaway?
Cost effective means of getting from Antigua to Lake Atitlan? (Aside from the Chicken buses)
I think 2 nights in Tikal should be plenty for us, but I’m concerned if I leave it to the end that we may miss our flight out of the country (leaves at 11:30 am).

Any suggestions or feedback would be helpful!
