I'd like to see Tikal, Uaxactun, Yaxha, Topoxte & Nakum during that time. Am I biting off more than I can chew?
Must sees are sunrise and sunset in Tikal and sunset in Yaxha. I know Topoxte is a small site, but the boat ride to the site really appeals to me. And Nakum really peaks my interest as well.
This is what I'm thinking:
Day 1 - Tikal Sunset
Day 2 - Tikal Sunrise, Uaxactun, Tikal Sunset
Day 3 - Tikal Sunrise; travel to Yaxha Park early enough for a Topoxte tour before Yaxha Sunset
Day 4 - Nakum; head to San Ignacio
There's a lot of energy consuming walking and little time for sleep in the itinerary above. I may knock off the second sunrise tour because of that.
It's important to note that I will be in Orange Walk for 2 nights prior and will have 6 nights in San Ignacio for a very leisurely paced stay with only 3 days of planned tours. Then I'm heading to the coast for the remainder of my trip which will be all beach time and snorkel with no inland tours. My point being that I will have plenty of time to relax after my time in Guatemala.
Another option is to change up my itinerary and stay 1 night in Tikal and 2 in Yaxha. Or even add one in Yaxha and take one from San Ignacio. But the Yaxha stay is more expensive and doesn't include the comforts of 24/7 electricity and a pool!
I appreciate all advice and insights!
