I'm leaving for Guatemala on Saturday -- it's a little bit last minute, I know. I still have a lot left to plan (OK, everything) and was wondering if someone could be kind enough to take a peek at my itinerary.
I wanted to go to Copan (loved Tikal 2 yrs ago!) but wondering if it will be worth the time in a van. I know this is a lot, but is it unreasonable?
Sat 12/1 - GUA to Antigua
Sun 12/2 - Leave for overnight to Copan & Quirigua (early)
Mon 12/3 - Return from Copan (late)
Tues 12/4 - Antigua (walking tour, etc.)
Weds 12/5 - Antigua
Thurs 12/6 - Chichi --> San Pedro La Laguna (Atitlan)
Fri 12/7 - San Pedro/Atitlan (visiting a friend)
Sat 12/8 - San Pedro/Atitlan
Sun 12/9 - San Pedro --> GUA (early afternoon flight)
Alternately I could cut out Copan and just do San Pedro --> Chichi overnight --> Antigua. That would be a lot easier for sure, so just trying to figure out a few things --
- Is Copan worth it?
- Could we reasonably get to San Pedro if our flight arrives ~13:00?
- In Antigua, is Quinta de las Flores generally safe to walk to at night? (Taking the usual precautions, no flashy stuff, no staggering intoxication, stay alert, etc.)
