I am travelling in November for 4weeks (32 days) in Mexico-Guatemala. Arriving in Cancun, leaving from Guatemala City. We are 2 adults with 2 kids (3 and 5), we like ruins and outdoor activities (children are limiting for the hiking bit). We travelled before in Asia mostely, speak basic Spanish. I like spending more time in one place, but ONLY if there is something to keep us busy (we will not spend the entire day in a hotel to 'relax' as doing that with kids is too tiring...)
My idea about…
I'm in Guatemala for a few weeks and am planning a trip to Chichicastenango market next Thursday. I just heard that there was a fire a couple months ago and I was wondering whether the market is functioning as usual? We're going up from Antigua Wednesday afternoon and spending the night. I've never been and don't want to make the trip in vain.
Can anyone recomend a good place to study Spanish in Antigua, Guatemala?
I'm gonna spent four weeks studying and would like to start practice gramma and basic Spanish and then have as much conversations as possible.
Planning a two week trip to Guatemala at the end of November. Thinking of taking it easy as we will be going to Nicaragua for three months in the new year. My wife and I want to go directly to Antigua for a few days, Lake Atitlan for about 4-5 days and maybe the market town of Chichicastanango before heading back to Antigua. Any recommendations for a newly retired couple travelling around the lake, what towns we should visit as well as accommodations around the lake in the $40-$60 range…
Hello, I have several questions about Las Verapaces.
I would like to spend a week in this area. Semuc Champey, Candelaria Caves, and Laguna Lachua (is it the correct order/itinerary?). We will leave from Antigua and after these places we will go north to Flores.
I am traveling without a car (we dont want to rent a car), the first week of January (from the 1st), with my wife.
How is the temperature in these places? Does it rain often?
How easy is it to move from one place to another? What…

I'm planning a trip to Belize and Guatemala in March with three kids. Will be in San Ignacio then going to Flores for a night, Tikal for a night and then have another night to kill before heading back into Belize.
Can someone suggest something to do and/or a place to stay for a night in the area? Since most of our trip will be in Belize, I'm keen to spend more time in Guatemala but don't want to spend it on the road driving too far south.
One option is to stay in Tikal for a second night but…
Beginning of December I will go to Central America and Columbia for 4 months of traveling. This trip will start in Guatemala and I could need some help with my itinerary in this country.
After Guatemala I want to get my PADI Open Water in Utila, Honduras.
I will stay at least 1 week in Antigua or Lake Atitlan to do a Spanish Course.
My plan would be more or less to visit the places below in this order.
I am planning to stay in Antigua for four days, while doing a half day trip to Pacaya and also checking out the Macadamia Farm, Caoba Farms, Cerro de la Cruz, the markets and wandering the streets to photograph the colonial buildings and churches.
Do you think that four days is enough time to do all of this? Just looking for some advice from those who have been to Antigua.
