I'm at the beginning stages of planning our trip for late December 2014. We'll be traveling over the kids (two teens) Christmas/NY break.
day 1- arrive GC early evening; night at local hotel
day 2-early flight to Tikal-stay Tikal Inn
day 4- Tikal sunrise and flight to GC and transfer to Antigua
day 5- Antigua-walking tour of city
day 6- Antigua-hike Pacaya Volcano
day7- transfer to Lake Atitlan (this will be Thursday but also Christmas day so not sure if market is and option today?)
day 8 - lake
day 9 - lake
day 10- lake
day 11 - lake
day 12- lake
day 13 - lake
things, I'd like to cover at the lake: kayaking and/or canoe, day visiting various villages around lake, hike San Pedro volcano, horseback riding and/or rock repelling, Chici market.
day 14 - lake and back to GC (New Years Day)
day 15 - early flight home
We enjoy a mix on vacation, culture, activity, historical sites but we're not ones to sit around very much. Think I have the days split about right? Thanks appreciate any and all input!!
