My vote is for Guatemala too. With a week, you could divide your time between the colonial city of Antigua and Panajachel or one of the other towns around Lake Atitlan. From either place, you could work in the market day (Thursday or Sunday) in Chichicastenango, one hour from the lake or two hours from Antigua. This would keep you in a reasonably small area for one week, but would give you a nice variety of things to see and do.

Guatemala has a great system of private minivan shuttles that go between places of tourist interest. They seat about 15 people and transport you and other visitors who are going to the same destination.
