Bedroom was small but did the job, as was the shared bathroom. We were able to book lots of tours through the hostel, who were very helpful.

This hotel/hostel is definitely one of the best we've ever been in. The rooms are extremely tidy and spacious and the beds are pretty good as well. What makes this place stand out however is the very friendly staff. Miguel provided us with all the assitance we needed and was definitely the nicest hotel owner we've ever met.

The boat across Arsenal lake did in fact exist and it was a beautiful day, so the adventure continues.

... to ourselves. There were a few other tourists, but mainly older and easily outpaced. Wasn't a strenuous hike, but the park is beautifully set up. The trail blends right in to the surroundings and gives the sensation of walking through ancient ruins. We lingered about the hanging bridge in the canopy and the view point at the top. Was a wall of white at the view point due to the clouds, but it held its own kind of beauty. Reminded me of the top of the ski slope, before you're ...
