My soon to be wife and I are headed down from the Bay Area and are mixing AC with a stay inland at Chaa Creek. We have been debating whether to shorten our stay on AC by a day so that we have more time to see ruins, go hiking, go canoeing, and see the caves.
It appears that there are many day trips, but a number of the (to Tikal) seem to require air travel, and I am wondering if it is possible to catch an early boat, see these sights, and then catch a late boat back to AC.
We treasure our beach time and will be newly certified divers after 4 days at St. George's Lodge, so we're just trying to plan the best use of our time.
As a final note, we wanted to say this message board is the best we have ever seen- very, very helpful. It has done much to get us even more excited for our two week honeymoon starting in just a week. Thanks to all for contributing and making it that much more enticing.
