TravelPod Member ReviewsHotel La Bocona Granada
Hotel La Bocona was great. The staff was incredibly nice. The location made for easy walking to historic sites and dinner.
You should know a few things before staying here, however....
1. You have your own bathroom... but it's across a large courtyard. So if you're like me and have to go potty in the middle of the night, it's not the most convenient thing to deal with.
2. Our room was along the street with nothing but shutters and bars between us and all the loud street noise. Yelling, loud cars and lots of honking made sleeping difficult. I'm a light sleeper so I didn't sleep much. So bring some serious ear plugs!
3. No airconditioning, fans only. Sounds like a westerner luxury we could do without... until it's hot as hell and you're trying to sleep. So if being comfortable at night and not sweating like crazy is a big deal to you, I'd advise another spot to stay.

... cream on top, and the local drink ‘tiste’ a cold cacao drink. Talking to the man in the restaurant he told us of a surf competition happening at the start of June which would completely change our plans, but more on that next blog.
The next day we spent exploring the town. We visited the cemetery and some of the many churches, we went bargain hunting in the second hand clothes market for cheap work clothes for both of us (for me that means more pairs of sturdy ...
... hard and got all dressed up and in the end there were only a few tiny mistakes. Also we were in the beautiful city of San Miguel de Allende and I was reunited with all of my wonderful friends from all around the world living in Mexico. We had a fantastic weekend with lots of laughs, an all-nighter, and I even taught my group of friends how to play the infamous game of Oh Hell which everyone quickly became obsessed with. Even though at the end of ...
Granada was our second stop and where we decided to do two weeks of Spanish lessons! We got the local express bus from Leon which is always guaranteed to be full. The bus won't depart until all the seats are full, thus maximising the use of the fuel. We were lucky and were the 'last people’ for the bus, although the driver kicked a local off the bus to make room for us which we felt bad about, but there was 1 spare seat and two ...
... vendor...... The following morning we headed to the lake for a trip round the volcanic islands which were extremely pretty and it was interesting to see what people had done with them! We could have bought one of the islands for a mere $160,000 again just need that lottery win....... We enjoyed a lovely lunch which caused us to be running late and we only just made it onto the last bus to San Juan Del ...
Today all the Inbound exchange students in my district returned from Ruta Maya after 2 long weeks of travel. By the end we all just wanted to be home, and almost all of us are sick (great). We went to some really unbelievable places, including parks, Mayan Ruins, Waterfalls, Cenotes (which are giant holes in the earth that have a lake at the bottom where you can swim), we swam in an underground river, and visited some of the most famous and beautiful places ...
