Wet and Wild Guatemalan style!

A travel blog entry by samandmegan


... it was either that or the chicken bus - which meant that when the bus was three hours late the next day, there wasn't much we could do about it except sit in a hammock on the hostel's roof and read for a while. As I am currently reading 'War and Peace' it meant I was able to get through about 0.01% of that ridiculosuly long book! The reason for the delay was apparently something to do with the tyre, so when it turned up we thought that there would be nothing ...

... inside a minivan with people squeezed in like sardines; after the usual nonsense stops and after the last dozen kilometers on dirt roads with a beautiful view over the surrounding jungle-covered valleys, we arrived at our hostel in Lanquin: an oasis made up of huts on the banks of a river as blue as the sky.

Before lunch we had the chance to have a go on a rope swing and jump off a bridge. Next was a 30 minute hike up to a look out of some natural springs where ...
