Because of the time of year, I was the only guest. Paul and his staff were wonderful and accommodating. The hotel is very clean and its in a great location, close to the beach and a short walk, down the beach, to the main shopping and restaurant street.

... Mandy and I indulged in an amazing dinner complete with tlayudas (local street food) but we refrained from the chapulines (fried chilli grasshoppers).
The next stop was our long awaited return to the beach. After covering A LOT of miles over the last week we were starting to get over bus travel. Reflecting on our decision to head deep into Guatemala we feel as though we could have turned towards the coast a little earlier than we did. There ...
