Hubby and me were thinking about visiting beautiful Guatemala during the last week of November. I haven't done any reservations yet, as I am quite lost as to where to go, stay and what all to see in the 7 or 8 days we might have. I do know that we want to see the Tikal ruins and the Atitlan lake. Which are the most beautiful beaches there? Do people rent cars there? Are they available/safe to drive around etc? Where do people generally stay? We are budget travelers but we also look for comfort and safety. We are Asian Indians and we love to travel and do light to moderate hiking. Also, we are US green card holders do we need a visa to visit Guatemala? Any advice/pointers would be appreciated.
