My partner and I are planning to visit the San Ignacio area for a week in early-to-mid-May 2019, and I've been reading a lot of reviews and forum posts on Tripadvisor. I have now sketched out our itinerary based on what I've read, and I would love to get some feedback from the knowledgeable experts on Tripadvisor. :)
For lodging, we are planning to stay at San Ignacio Resort Hotel because we want to have air-conditioning and to be within walking distance into town so we can try all the different restaurants. (I haven't started planning each meal yet, so any suggestions are welcome!)
For tours/activities, we'd like to do all of the following:
-A day trip to Tikal (preferably with Elias/K'atun Ajaw or K'atun Ahaw);
-A day at ATM;
-A combined tour of Cahal Pech and Barton Creek Cave Canoeing.
Here are some specific questions I'd like feedback on:
1. Am I missing anything spectacular in this region? For example, I've also seen tours to Yaxha, Saint Herman's Cave/Inland Blue Hole, and Black Hole Drop. We do enjoy rappelling down waterfalls, water activities generally, and hiking, but we're not interested in ziplining or riding horses.
2. Is it likely to rain in early-to-mid-May, such that I should plan a "down" day during the week so that we have a free day on which we can reschedule a tour in case we get rained out for an activity?
Thanks in advance for any help/replies!
