Help with 17 day itinerary - please!

Hello, I am planning a 17 day trip (starting 11/6-23) to Guatemala. This is my first time and I will be travelling with 2 friends. We are all in our late 20's and like to do adventurous things, but we also like to relax, enjoy the food, nightlife, and just take it all in. We are budget minded, but we have enough money to stay at better places or take better transportation.

Anyway, my first question is, does anyone have any suggestions for places off the beaten path. I have read numerous forums and I'm familiar with all the typical places to see.

Secondly, what would you recommend as far as days to spend at each place.

Thirdly and most imporantly, to throw a wrench into things, one of the guys will only be travelling for only 10 days, so I'm not sure what we should see in those first 10 days. Would it be better to focus on the ruins (Tikal) and Rio Dulce, or Lake Attitlan and Antigua? On the 10th day (he flies out at 8pm), I'd like for him to be close enough to GC so that he can get back to the airport on his own safely.

Thanks for any/all suggestions!!!

How many days (out of the 17)?
Lake Attitlan (pana/chichi/villages)
Antigua
Flores/Tikal
Rio Dulce / Livingston
Poptun

Maybe places...
Coban (semuc champey)?
GC?
Belize day trip?
Copan?

Anywhere else?
