Semana Santa itinerary

Jump to last reply

Just want to check this out with you experts since I am planning a last minute trip to Guatemala for Semana Santa and won't therefore get the best accommodations. (Last time when I queried about G, we ended up going to Vietnam, Laos, and Cambodia instead.) A major purpose of the trip is photography. So now here is the plan:
I made reservations for Antigua at La Casona de Antigua for the Wed., Thursday, Friday before Easter.
Then we would travel that Saturday to either Panajachel or Chichi for Saturday night and Sunday market day and then stay around the lake and visit villages for a couple of days.
Then back to Antigua, where I made reservations at Hotel la Cathedral (which my son recommended). Both hotels allow late cancellations and I did query Casa Cristina as H suggested.
Any recommendations for a hotel in either Chichi or around the lake? Any other thoughts? I haven't made my airline reservations yet (perhaps tonight) so have some flexibility. Other thoughts. I did print out hopefulists reports. Thanks.
