... the trip, but in retrospect it’s always easy to decide; and after all the journey, the landslides and this place, nice without being as wonderful as promised, have turned this couple of days into a little adventure.
After a swim and a hike on top of a hill to see the view, we went back to the hostel to rest for a while: tomorrow we will have some more long hours of traveling through Guatemala to get to Flores, on the doorstep, so to speak, of the Mayan ruins of ...
... and we were starting to get along very well with them. We were bundled in the back of a cattle truck and driven off to the river with our tubes. The tubing was supposed to be a 2 and a half hour slow ride down a crystal clear ice blue river, with your preordered beers in their own tube floating amonst us. Due to the heavy rain the night before the river was brown and pumping! We flew down the river in half an hour and only got one of our alloted ...
Our hostel here in Lanquin was super social, and we made a lot of new friends here. There were travelers from all over the world here- all who had also traveled eight or nine hours on horribly rough roads to get to this paradise.
Semuc Champey is one of the most beautiul places on earth. It's a set of freshwater, cascading waterfalls that are swimmable and made of the most amazingly clear and blue waters. Located in ...

She explained that it hurt to breathe in and felt like her heart was stopping every time. My mom thinks ...

We stayed here for one night out of desperation because the bus dropped us off here after 12 hours of travel from Atitlan. They wanted 120Q for two people in a dorm. We bargained down to 100Q. There was no hot water (as promised) and the place was loud even at 3AM. The pillows were terrible and smelled horrible. Down the street at Hostal d'Acuña we got a private room for 100Q )the same price! and enjoyed great hospitality. This is the place to go in Coban!
