Any suggestions ?
There's tons to do and see around the lake. A night or two in San Pedro is cool. You can take a boat over to Iguana Perdida for a night. Panajachel is a fun town with decent nightlife.
Antigua is an awesome town and is worth visiting. If you have time go up north to Semuc, but if that's not on the schedule just head down to Johnny's Place in Monterrico before crossing into El Salvador.
It would be wise to go clockwise around the lake and skip the roads between San Pedro and Santiago - lots of crooks out there that sometimes attack motorcyclists.
