Jump to last reply

Thanks Foderites for your wonderful postings. This is our first trip to Guatemala. How's this schedule for our two week trip seem?

Aug1. Arrive GUA and stay 1 night in Antigua at Meson Panza Verde.
Aug2. Arrive Chichicastenango and stay 2 nights at Mayan Inn.
Aug 4. Arrive Atitlan and stay 2 nights at Lomas de Tezuna.
Aug6. Return to Antigua and stay at Quninta de las Flores for 5 nights while taking spanish lessons somewhere.
Aug11. Fly to Flores, drive to San Ignaco and stay at Blancaneux for 2 nights.
Aug 13. Drive to LaLancha near Tikal and stay there for 2 nights.
Aug15. Fly back to GUA and home.

Our kids are 15 and 18. We all speak some spanish, although my wife and most spanish speaking people don't think my spanish is as good as I do. We'd like to take 2 to 4 hrs of spanish in the mornings. Any recommendations? I'm delaying reservations at LaLancha and Blancaneux because I'm worried there's not enough time to enjoy them and also see caves and Tikal. Too much Francis Ford Coppola? I'd like to rent a car in Flores, but not around Antigua. Does that make sense? I've already reserved the GUA FRS GUA tickets. So, whatchathink?
