Itinerary critique

Jump to last reply

I'm trying to get together a very last minute trip to Guatemala. It seems as though Lake Aitlan and Antigua are the most accessible, but I could use some feedback on how to travel between them and distances. We would likely rent a car, if that were easiest. We are considering:
Dec 27: arrive GUA at 12:30 pm. Travel to Chichi. Try to make reservations at Hotel Giron, if available.
Dec 28: Market at Chichi then drive (?) to Lake Aitlan area. Try to make reservations at Lomas de Tzununas, if available (not sure what we'd do with the car, since it is a boat ride away - does anyone know?)
Dec 31: check out at Tzununas, travel to Antigua (how far?)
spend, the rest of the 31st, 1st, and 2nd in Antigua
Jan 3rd - fly home from GUA

Question: would we be fools to miss Tikal? It sounds nice, but I don't want to overextend ourselves in the amount of time we have. Not sure if it's worth the domestic flight and exactly where to squeeze it in. Maybe save it for next time? what do you all think?
