We are hoping to visit Tikal in August as part of a longer Guat. trip. We are not backpackers; we are what is called today "seasoned" travelers (but not retired). We are in good health but hardly miracles of fitness.
We absolutely have to have efficient, quiet, A/C, so the lodges in the park are out. We are thinking about the Camino Real.
We would probably arrange a package in Antigua for 2 nights, so hopefully shuttles, etc., would not be a problem.
Is this worth doing, or is the weather just too much? I know to expect mosquitos and rain.
We would prefer not to be captives at a hotel, and to be to walk to other places to eat. However, nothing is more important than quiet, efficient A/C if it is as hot and humid as everyone says.
Anyone been to Tikal recently in mid-late summer? All pointers on lodging, tours, package operators, meals, security, appreciated.
