TravelPod Member ReviewsHotel Aaculaax San Marcos La Laguna
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.

... was nonetheless intriguing. Our group split up afterwards to explore the markets for a few hours. We thoroughly enjoyed haggling with the vendors and practicing our Spanish to ensure we got the best price for our desired goods.

I know that I'm going to have to bring some home for my family.
I then came home and chatted with Jason. Then I ...
... The local transport is boat and pickup inter-town and tuk-tuk within. Sadly, Ray is too heavy for the tuk-tuks; we almost had to get out and push one uphill at one point :/ The boats follow an interesting model: wait here until the driver fancies it's time to go. Depending on the mood either pay upfront or later or maybe not at all. The most interesting, though, are the pickups. You get to ride in the back or, if it's full, hang off the end. We did this ...
Rode a tuk tuk from San Pedro to the nearby village of San Juan to check out the woven products. There are many weavers co-ops to protect the interests of the women who do all the work. Colourful murals cover the exterior of many buildings. Also a nice surprise to see a little herbal garden with a little stand selling products. We returned to San Pedro by boat, a short ride. We could have walked but it was too ...
... we had paid the money and signed the receipt. The shuttle bus to Guatemala would detour via Antigua (probably hooking up with other agencies with passengers bound for Guatemala from there!) He said that we still had plenty of time and in case there were enough people to go direct to the capital, a separate shuttle would be arranged for. This sounded hollow to us and we were also troubled that he waited till the payment was made ...
