    • Backpacking during the rainy season (3 - 4 weeks in August)

      Guatemala Yesterday

      Hey all

      I am hoping to go to Guatemala for 3 - 4 weeks in August, which I realize lands right in the middle of rainy season. I was wondering if I should be concerned about going to guatemala during this time? Given the circumstances with work and school, this is the only month I can really go, as I will finishing work in July and beginning school in September. I really want to take a trip like this, but my locations and time frames are limited. From what I've gathered, the weather will still be nice, but when it DOES rain, it will dump, and it will rain a decent amount; but I have also heard that this makes the area look very green!

      As I this is my first backpacking trip, and I will be doing it solo, I'm hoping to stick to hostel tours and expeditions for the first while. Will there still be a large back packing community there during this time?

      Just an idea on where I was hoping to go: Antigua, Florence, Tikal, Semuc Champey, Lake Atitlan, and essentially any other place that pops up along the way. I was also thinking of spending a week in Utila, but that is a secondary goal.

      Any advice on this or the region in general is appreciated!

      Worth the trip?

      Chichicastenango Jan 8, 2006 at 8:46 PM

      So I'm heading to Guatemala end of next month and really itching to go to Chichi. Consequently, creating an itinerary has been complicated becuase market days fall on thurs and sun and so I have to work around this. Since I'll be in Antigua on their market day, my question is: Is it worth going to Chichi even if I've already been to a Guatemalan market? Thanks for any advice :)

    • Driving in Guatemala

      Chichicastenango Jun 7, 2005 at 10:43 AM

      I was thinking of renting a car and driving in Guatemala. I did it in 1988 and was wondering if anyone was done it recently.

      I want to drive from the Guatemala City airport to Chichicastenango - Panajachel - Quetzaltenango - Pacific Ocean - Antigua - back to Guatemala City.

      With all the talk about safety concerns, what do you think of 4 people driving around in a compact-sized 4-door?

      I will probably be going June 25. Thanks for any advice.
