Family holiday in Guatemala - Xela or Antigua?

edited August 2009 in - Central America
I'm planning a holiday down in Guatemala and plan on seeing loads of ruins and a trip to Tikal. Which is the best base for a family holiday with older kids - Xela or Antigua?

    I recommend for you to stay at Antigua, it's a beautiful colonial city. Additionally Guatemala city is about 25 minutes from Antigua, Xela is farther and it's a long trip there. Antigua is a well know tourist place and you can be in the City in minutes for your trip to Tikal via Airplane or tour bus.
