That's feasible. Time in the highlands would be a priority for me. Happy trails!
Sounds good to me as well......
So rare, and refreshing, to have someone with reasonable objectives for their allotted time!
This is the way I would do it to save you time from any backtracking.From GC to Puerto Barrios/Rio Dulce www.mayaparadise.com on www.litegua.com They have excellent hourly service on double decker buses. From GC to Puerto Barrios is a five hours ride with a lunch stop. In PB you take the public boat for the 30 minute ride to Livingston. Then from there up to Flores/Tikal it's about 3/4 hours. Then via Sayaxche down to Coban. And in Coban you'll find plenty of available transportation via Uspantan to Nebaj www.nebaj.com And via Chichi to Atitlan. From there to Antigua and Monterrico or back to GC for your return flight Go to www.mapasdeguatemala.com This other site has good hotels with direct telephone numbers www.guatemalastory.com
thanks Kyle2009,i like your advice,that way theres dosent seem to be any night travelling,as i would like to see the country side.
So, depending on your flight arrival time you could go straight to the Litegua bus terminal in downtown zone one. Now taking into account that it's a five hour ride you'll have to leave no later than 12PM in order to arrive in PB before dusk. Otherwise you'll have to find a place to stay there to take the boat to Livingston the next day. And believe it or not PB it's a safe place with a lower crime rate than the rest of the country. And it's not dirty either. But is not a very appealing to the eye. Or instead of going to PB, you could take Litegua to Rio Dulce also known as Fronteras which is a nicer town than PB and spend the night at Bruno's or any of the other hotels there. On this site www.mapasdeguatemala.com click on Izabal to get an area map of Rio Dulce.
