Itinerary Review and Recommendations

This is an overview of our current plans. We'd love recommendations on changes or modifications we might want to make.

Wednesday – GUA to Rio Dulce

Thursday -- Rio Dulce

Friday – Rio Dulce to Tikal

Saturday - Tikal

Sunday -- Yaxha then dropped in Flores

Monday – Flight (Flores to GUA) then bus to Antigua

Tuesday -- Antigua

Wednesday – Antigua to Chichi

Thursday – Chichi to Atitlan

Friday -- Atitlan (Solala market day)

Saturday – Atitlan

Sunday – Atitlan

Monday – Atitlan to GUA

Tuesday – Early flight to US

We could do Chichi on the last Sunday. Is it much better on Sunday than Thursday?

That looks do-able. I'm wondering why are you overnighting in Chichi on Wednesday if you're planning to go back for the market on Sunday? As to your question, the Sunday market is much bigger than on Thursday. And some folks here will tell you that the shopping is better in Pana, though I think the spectacle, plus a visit to the Santo Tomas church, makes a visit to Chichi worthwhile.

We would only go to Chichi either Thursday or Sunday. With Sunday being bigger, we may split our time in Atitlan and go Sunday instead. We were considering two different places in Atitlan anyway, so we do one before Chichi and one after.

And we're not big shoppers, but we thoroughly enjoy markets.

Don't miss the beautiful produce market in the commercial building in Chichi - a highlight for me. Have a great trip!
