Guatemala help - only have nine full days

Jump to last reply

My 21 yr old daughter and I will be traveling to Guatemala in late March/April.

We are fairly active, enjoy hiking, food, live music, exploring and experiencing different cultural experiences. If possible we would like to stay around 4 days in Antigua and 5 days on Lake Atitlan. We would really like to visit Tikal but it seem like a lot to cram into such a short time and we would like to avoid moving from one hotel to another.

1. Has anyone ever done one of the one day trips to Tikal from Antigua? It sounds a bit exhausting to me, but it would allow us to stay put in Antigua for a few days, before moving on to Lake Atitlan for the rest of the trip.

3. Has anyone ever stayed at La Casa del Mundo? Is it a good base to explore the lake and surrounding villages? It seems to be very popular but I'm worried it may be a bit too remote. Is it true that you're stuck there at night or can you take a taxi to the other villages? Do water shuttles operate at night?

I'm at the very beginning stages of planning and would love some feedback.
