Photography and Culture trip to Guatemala

Jump to last reply

Planning a trip to Guatemala for 10-14 days in Jan/Feb. Fodors Forum has been SO helpful to me in planning our trips to Myanmar, India,......, so here I am--looking for input. My hubby and I are 63-64--pretty adventuresome, but also like creature comforts without high costs. I'll be carrying expensive camera equipment in my backpack and/or around my neck and would like to stay safe. I am open to any and all suggestions! RE hotels, guides, restaurants, itinerary, safety precautions.......
So far, I am thinking of Antigua first (after arrival from LA into Gua City), then Lake Atitlan and Panajachel for maybe 3 nights, then Chici (love market colors), then Xela, before another day or two in Antigua. We have seen lots of ruins around the world and might skip Tikal for the safety?
What about the Ixil triangle area?
I have read and reread hopefulist's report over and over--very helpful. Any particular villages to recommend? Or anything? Best way to get between areas? Thanks in advance!
