    This is a beautiful place set just below the little Mayan reserve where they used to have Mayan sacrifices. The reserve has trails up to the altar and places to swim and a trampoline. The hotel is quirky in all the right ways, with great mosics, tiles and artwoks decorating all the rooms and common areas. The gardens are peaceful and filled with hidden treasures.

    ... an elderly gent in traditional dress, who offered to take us to him for 150 quetzales ($20). Having laughed directly in his face, he dropped it instantly to 50 quetzales, but we carried on walking. When we arrived at the square we found that a large, but apparently poorly attended political rally was about to, or had just taken place for the Lider (leader) party. We asked in bakeries and tiendas if the locals knew where to find Maximón, but everyone told us that they ...

    ... the guide pointed out things like an atm, a supermarket, and good places to eat.

    After the tour, me and two of the others went to a place called La Cafetera where we all got a drink - mine was a Coka Float - and chatted. It was good getting to meet others who are doing the same general thing as me. However, I have noticed that a good majority of those who are studying here are learning the basics of Spanish. It ...

    ... got drenched on the way over, it was so choppy! 2) Chichicastenango Market - a market legendary for it's sprawling size; rumoured to be the largest in Central America. There was, sadly, significant repetition on the stalls, and we'd seen a lot of the produce elsewhere, but the prices were much lower and if you searched hard you could find some really unique items. Needless to say we both got some serious shopping done with a few new clothes ...

But when we hear the Leon call from the reception desk, we get outside and notice a 7 seater van with bigger seats waiting for us. So we pile in and start the long journey to Nicaragua, via El Salvador. Hopefully no issues with immigration, van or anything else along the way. We reminisce on the amazing experience and time we had in our ...

    ... as the fancy catches you. On this trip, we compromised and chose to stay put at a single location for 3 days and undertake day trips. There are great benefits to this mode (no heavy packs, no packing/unpacking every day, nice restaurants etc.) but it limits the radius of your circle as you have to keep the timing of the last returning chicken bus from your destination. We chose to stay at Panajachel, on the shores of Lago Atitlan (the cradle of ...
