Thoughts on vacationing next year in Guatemala vs. Nicaragua
After just finishing our current winter's tropical vacation, it's time to start thinking about the next one in January-February 2015. This all because I am a travel research nut. Soooo, we tossing around either a vacation to Guatemala, particularly Antigua and surrounding villages, and maybe Tikal, although the thought of visiting such a popular tourist site is not as appealing. The other possibility is Nicaragua, maybe a week on a finca in the mountains and a week in Granada. Can anyone weigh in with some thoughts? Your favorite sites, even if you only been to one country or the other? Can't miss experiences (no Zip-lining please) in either country? Around Tikal we are sure to see some wildlife. I am less sure about that anywhere else in either country and would appreciate input.
