Help with Tikal portion of our Belize/Guatemala trip

Jump to last reply

This coming February, we'll be traveling to Belize and Guatemala. The first three (San Ignacio, including Caracol) and the last three (Lamanai Outpost Lodge) will be spent in Belize, with the middle three in Guatemala.

Here's how our schedule breaks down in terms of what we know:

Day 4: Transport from Cahal Pech resort to Tikal Inn (arranged already), with estimated arrival around 11:00 am. Spend night at Tikal Inn

Day 5: Spend night at Tikal Inn.

Day 6: Catch 2:00 pm shuttle from Tikal Inn to Flores, check into Hotel Santana.

Day 7: 9:45 flight from Flores Int'l to BZE.

Besides seeing wildlife and ruins, our only other agenda item is a zipline.

Our very, very rough plan for our time there is this:

Day 4: Check into Tikal Inn upon arrival, do a zipline after lunch, and then check out the park after 3 pm so we can use the admission for the next day.

Day 5: Sunrise tour of the ruins, lunch and pool time during the afternoon, then returning to the park for the late afternoon.

Day 6: Go to park again? Wander trails? Hire a naturalist, as opposed to an archaeological, guide? Then, spend afternoon in Flores in some down time, wandering, shopping, relaxing.

Or would it make more sense to to the zipline on the morning of day six and spend the first afternoon relaxing by the pool?

Would it be worth it for us to spend the $$ for admission for another day to see the ruins after getting a tour the previous day?

We're really unsure how to proceed here, so we're open to suggestions of any and all kinds (well, except for the mule train to El Mirador--maybe another time).
