This was a nice hotel. The rooms were comfortable. One of our ceiling fans did not work but the air conditioning unit made up for that. The location of the hotel is perfect, right by the river. The view was amazing. I did not particularly like the food in this hotel but I only had a burger and fries. That's not really enough to pass judgment. Overall, I had a great experience here and would definitely stay again.

... really enjoyed the country but there was nothing that especially grabbed us as being spectacular and completely different from the others. Antigua was nice, Tikal is special, Lake Atitlan was pretty... but the areas we visited were so westernised and tourism orientated that we didn't feel we got a sense of the country, certainly nothing that made it stand out. Which was a bit disappointing as we were really looking forward to ...
... above us. We had a good feeling about the day.
Our friendly guide led the sizeable group of 22 to the first spot on the tour, a manmade lake where we later spotted turtles, and explained to us that the Mayans that settled at Tikal build a myriad of quarries, canals and water channels to effectively capture water. We continued down to the path toward a skyscraper-tall ceiba tree (the tree of life to the Mayans) and spotted a pair of guatins sniffing around for food in the ...
... sandwich haha and regretted it so much. Anyways so the day started off great as we lost our tour guide. so we spent like 20 minutes trying to find him. We eventually did but to be honest I wasn't listening to a word he said because I was so hot and tired and uncomfortable. The only good part of the tour guide was that we didn't get lost because this place was massive through the jungle. Apparently this one guy got lost for like a week in the jungle. At the very start of ...
... genuinely concerned and it was because the snake turned out to be a coral snake for which there is no anti venom in Guatemala. Basically if you get bitten by one of these coral snakes then your numbers up. For the rest of the walk everyone was ******** themselves. We all got back to the busses safely but we were all a little on edge. Stuffed a bag of Cheetos into ourselves and got the bus home. Took an early night as we were going to Belize the next ...
... sports bar watching multiple games at once. I wonder what the Maya word for "pitcher of beer" is. Apparently the city once housed about 90,000 people, so the whole complex is pretty big and most of it is not uncovered. Of the more interesting temples was one to the rain god (associated with the fox). All Maya temples are oriented east-west but this one is north-south since the rain, in Tikal, comes from the north. More intriguing, only one building exhibits the ...
