I'm looking for suggestions for how to spend a weekend - Friday afternoon to Sunday - in between 2 weeks of Spanish classes at Lake Atitlan in San Pedro. We will have already spent a week at Antigua and are planning a visit to Iximche and Chichi market before arriving in San Pedro. I do have several ideas for things to do around the Lake but would love to hear if there is something else I haven't considered. At the Lake, I am thinking about Santiago, seeing the church, Maximon, staying at the Posada where we can relax. Or, Jaibalito, Casa del Mundo with Kayaking, swimming, hiking, relaxing.
But, should I be considering a weekend in Xela? Or is there somewhere else that I haven't even considered? I'd love to hear about somewhere reasonably easy to get to that would be a different experience than the Lake. Doesn't have to be relaxing if it is adventurous. We could leave after lunch on Friday and return to San Pedro Sunday evening.
Thanks in advance!
