Guatemala with a side trip to Ambergris, Belize - help critique my ideas

Jump to last reply

It has been a few years since I came to you for advice. Past experience has always shown Fodorites to be so very helpful and right on the money with suggestions! So here goes:

Heading to Guatemala and Belize for 14 nights!!!! Late January into February. So excited, had this one on my list for several years. Hubby first wanted to go to Panama but is conceding to my desire to do GUA and BZE. Naturally he also wants to do this, but is not as excited about back tracking to a previous destination. I on the otherhand am looking forward to going back to a familiar locale.

Question: If flying into GUA at 12:21 (noonish) is is feasible to head directly to Lake Atitlan?

Tentative plan is to fly into GUA arriving around noon.
Then head to Lake Atitlan, Considering Posado de Santiago for 3 nights.
Then head to Antiqua, for another 3 nights. Considering Hotel Cirilo (looks amazing) but if in need of cutting expenses, possibly Casa Florencia Hotel??
Fly to Flores
Head to Tikal for 1 or 2 nights at Tikal Inn
Head over to La Lancha for another 2 nights (just always wanted to stay here)
Fly from Flores to BZE then onto Ambergris for a 5 night stay at Carribbean Villas (been here before enjoyed very much, looking forward to chilling out here, snorkeling and probably a trip up to Lamanai)

Transfer suggestions in Guatemala? Prefer shuttle, not necessarily private, but either will work.
Solola or Chichi Markets? as a day trip, not an overnight.
Antiqua - city tours, coffee plantation I LOVE COFFEE. What else for a 55 & 66 yr young folks!! LOL!
Atitlan - visiting the towns and possibly a market. What else is a must do?
Tikal - want to visit at sunset and sunrise.

Thank you for your input! All suggestions welcome!
Donna
