I am doing my homework for my trip to Guatemala. I will be arriving Guatemala City 8 AM from Los Angeles in November. I am thinking of going straight to Antigua then Tikal. Alternatively, I can go straight to Tikal then Antigua.
I am wondering if there is any advantages/disadvantages with Antigua then Tikal or Tikal then Antigua. I have only 6 full days in Guatemala and am considering 3 days in each city aforementioned. Can any frequent travelers to these cities or native can give me some pointers with regard to time allocation?
Should I even budget any time for Guatemala City itself? My interests are colonial architecture, food, museums.
Thank you very much in advance.
