Lakeside oasis

A travel blog entry by lukeandsarah

Took the boat to San Marcus. More stress over where to stay - received death threats from little boys for not wanting to pay for their "guide" services
Finally settled on Paco Real, paid for 2 nights to get a deal
Found Jinava Bay paradise on a walk, couldn't believe it was only 30 QZ more than our room (£1) - gutted about being tied in to …

Day Three

A travel blog entry by jenniferruetz

Where the Wild Things Are

A travel blog entry by dinojay2


First off, I want to pass along the sad news that our grandma, Evelyn Houle, passed away last Friday. By all accounts it happened relatively peacefully after a long battle with Alzheimer's and the numerous complications that come along with it. She was an amazing woman and will be sorely missed by all of us.

As for Guatemala, well, so far I have talked about Food (at length) and Activities (at length). This time around - the wildlife! At length, of course. This part ...
