Antigua to Rio Dulce and back

by cya-traveller Online Now Mar 5, 2010 at 3:23 PM

We are in Antigua and want to travel to Rio Dulce. The shuttle out of here leaves in the am but the trip is two hours to the city and then a transfer to Linea Dorado for another 6 hours to Rio Dulce.
We have thought about spending the night in the city and then taking the bus so we won´t have to get up at 5am in Antigua and then 6 hours on a bus to Rio Dulce. Does anyone have thoughts on this?
Our only concern is staying in Zona 10 might take a long time to get to the bus station in Zona 4 and thus defeat the purpose of staying in the city.
A second question is on the trip back from Rio Dulce. We were thinking of travelling through El Estar then Coban to Chichicastenango for the market. Any thoughts from anyone on this. (Coban area offers whitewater rafting. Anyone done this and thoughts?)
Any and all info on these would be appreciated.

    If you get a taxi from zona 10 to zona 4 I don't think it will be so long (about 20 minutes maybe). You should definitely stop by Coban and go to Semuc Champey water pools!
    Enjoy!
