Antigua, Chichicastenango Market and Titlan Lake

by ClauCla

I'm flying to Guatemala next January (2010) and plan to visit Antigua, Chichicastenango Market and the Titlan before coming back to Guatemala City to fly to Flores. what's the logical sequence to follow ? how far are each one from another ? how do I get from one place to another ? does it make sense to rent a car ? what are the things I should not miss anyway ? I'll have 11 days in Guatemala and surely want to see Antigua and Tikal as the tops ones

Thanks

The easiest way is to just hop one of the many waiting shuttles from the airport to Antigua. If you have a Thursday or Sunday available, you could just shuttle from Antigua to Chichi for a day trip. If you don't, don't bother with it. There is a decent Rebuli daily bus from Antigua to Panajachel and back, but some people like paying a lot more to be crammed into shuttles with other tourists. it looks like buses to Guate from Pana go through Chichi. See http://www.thebusschedule.com/gt/index.php?lang=en
http://www.panajachel.com/bybus.htm

You especially won't need a car at Lake Atitlan, where boats go everywhere more quickly than you could drive.

Whether you take a first class bus or fly to Flores, there will be shuttle drivers at the airport or bus station, offering rides there. With a morniong arrival, you could just go straight there and leave your locked luggage at the Tikal Tourist center. Then decide whether to head back to more affordable Flores for the night.

Good luck!

Depending on when your original flight into Guatemala City lands, you may want to make the most of your time by flying to Flores the same day you land in GUA. You're in the GUA airport already, you can save yourself a transfer and just fly out on one of the daily flights up. The cost of a return flight to Flores is a better option than a one way ticket.
When you are coming back to GUA from Flores, you'll be coming in on a domestic flight and will be able to breeze through GUA faster. Stay in GUA for the night or take a shuttle direct to Antigua or Pana depending on the day of the week. Chichi Markets are on Thursday and Sunday. I prefer Chichi from Pana only because there is so much to do in Antigua and apart from a Pacaya trip, I wouldn't want to leave Antigua until it was time to leave.

Travel Tips for Antigua Guatemala

Cheapest Travel Agency

by Kindra

Gran Jaguar Tours on 4a calle west of the park is often if not always the cheapest agency for a variety of tours offered in and around Antigua as well as to many destinations in Guatemala and Honduras. Always check around... Here you can get a 1 day tour to Tikal with shuttle service to and from Guatemala city, round trip flight, park entrance, tour guide, meal and transport to Tikal for US$128. Be sure to book these types of tours a few days in advance, especially if you want to go on a weekend.

This cloister, surrounded by...

by la_beba

This cloister, surrounded by 18 cells, lies over a barrel vault supported by a massive central column about 3 meters in diameter. A remarkable characteristic of this part of the convent was a complex plumbing system that supplied running water to each cell.
Scholars have not agreed as to the function of these cells, especially since the nuns already had their rooms on the second floor of the convent, but their presence has led to different theories as well as to popular and imaginative tales.

The Public Laundry

by JessieLang

About ¼ of the residents lack running water and electricity, so they do their wash here. One woman was scrubbing clothes in one of the sinks while her two older children played. She had a 2-month old baby wrapped in a blanket and tucked into the empty sink next to her. Her husband was sitting nearby watching over them.

Think comfortable!!

by easterntrekker

Light and small....those shuttles have limited room! Light jacket for the evenings and comfortable walking shoes...to stand up to cobblestone steets.
The rule here is casual clothes and no jewellery I always take a first aid kit...peptol bismal is a good idea. Lots of digital memory

Climb to the Pacaya volcano

by Srechko

We joined a shuttle tour that took us until the official national park entrance from where we continued uphill by walk. We weren't that lucky as it was a cloudy day so view points were not enjoyable as they promised they might be.

Real excitement came one hour after, once we started walking on burned ground still warm since last erruption. We stayed there until night time so the experience with seeing smoke and active lava light was awesome.

Tour cost was US$10 including park entrance. Local guides were kind of useless - all we were hearing from them was "look there is lava there" - like we couldn't see it ourselves. Obviously tour leading is not taken seriously in Guatemala yet.
