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.

DISLIKES You should book hostels ahead, everything was always fully booked and finding accomodation without ...
... the 3 kids started walking in the opposite direction not really letting anyone pass them. They didn't use their machetes at anyone, but no one really wanted to test them to see if they would actually use them. While they were walking the opposite direction, our car and the van in front of us started continuing to drive slowly. Then we saw the kids reversing direction and coming our way so we drove the other way for a little bit until they stopped walking our ...
... 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 ...
... pics it was time for our transfer to the ferry. The boat was a two story affair which travelled from Moyagalpa to San Jorge. Had a chance to catch up on some more soapie action although it seemed the characters had changed sine a week or so ago, but still the hearts on screen and obligationary religious spot. couple of snacks as this was another lunchless day. maybe that is why everyday we saw vultures, they knew we would be hungry and were waiting for us to drop.
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 ...
