I'm planning a trip and this would be extremely helpful.

Anyone here that has been with children to Antigua and San Pedro? I'm trying to see what activities there are that might interest them.
I'd base myself in Antigua & visit San Pedro as a day trip

Hi
How old are the children?
In Antigua we did a 6 hr ATV tour of the villages around the city which includes a short chocolate factory tour and some others, theres also  several attractions that you can find on Chabads page
At the lake theres tons to do !
Ziplining, kayaking, exploring the villages, nature reserve we were there 3 days and definitely  could have stayed for more

For the ATV tour, definitely 8 and up can be passengers, I dont know your adult/child ratio etc

Hobbitenango outside Antigua should be great, and again Chabad is a fantastic resource

At the Lake, whats your set up? Its beautiful there, do you have your own property? I think more info would help me help you

Feel free to PM me

We had to scratch the lake for chol hamoed idea for logistical reasons. But chabad antigua is being extremely helpful.

We might make a day trip to see the lake

For a day trip definitely no need to hit SP
Right outside Pana maybe 10 minutes drive u can take a tuk tuk or taxi is a nature reserve with ziplining and bike Zipline gorgeous, overlooking the lake and lots of fun

If you're into coffee check out cafe loco there as well 
Just keep in mind it's around 2 &1/2  hrs each way, windy mountain type so not easy for kids and you need to build in travel time on the lake itself between the villages
