I chose this place to stay based on price and good user reviews, and I really made the right decision. The place was very charming, and all the staff were so friendly. My room was super clean, and had a private shower. Everything was perfect.
The free breakfast was toast, ham and cheese slices, cereal, fruit, yogurt, and juice.
The hotel is located in San Blas, so it's about a 5 min walk to the Plaza de las Armas. It is on a nice quiet street, and my room was very quiet.
During my stay, several of the staff members went out of their way to help me call the airport and ask about my lost luggage. I speak a little Spanish, but not enough for such a complicated discussion, and they were really great about helping me recover my bag.
I am planning to come back next year and will definitely stay here again!

The guide is a nice guy and quite funny, at first he came across quite impatient but we think this is because he's stuck with tourist on new year and he said he's missing out on the beach. We arrived at where we would be ...
... is a wild animal that can only be sheared once every three years. The local people are the only ones who can do the shearing and this occurs once a year making the wool quite a rarity. There were also a lot of groups of alpacas and jamas through the reserve who all had tassels in their ears. I was amused to find out that the tassels don't only look pretty but represent ownership and identify when shearing needs to occur. We also were introduced to coca leaves on the ...
