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.

... in which they expressed themselves, with no judgement. We were invited to join but declined as we needed to get to bed as it was after 00:30 and we need to get up the next day for school.
We woke up with hangovers to prove the good night we had. I pulled out the monster Kev bought me for my birthday, but even ...
Hola! The day after the killer hike we headed to Granada, another colonial town. It is surprisingly (or maybe unsurprisingly) similar to Antigua, although much better maintained! All the buildings are painted in beautiful bright colours, and a local told us that it is tradition to repaint your house/shop every year on Christmas Eve or New Year's Eve. We were absolutely exhausted when we arrived, ...
... It was pretty late before we finally cooked and the one guy had gone to go get food, which I thought was kind of weird, but me and the remaining guy cooked and it turned out decent. There was a ton left over so I put it in a bowl and put a bag over that to save for tomorrow.
I ended up watching Pretty Woman in a hammock before going to bed. It was a nice relaxing night. Just what I needed. ...
... really warming up to me at first, the other day I announced to a room filled with my relatives that we had arrived as I was the first in the door, and he said "Hola hija!" which here is like a term of endearment that literally means daughter. That is one of the very happy, yet small, tiles on this board game called Exchange.
I often spend the time when I'm alone sitting and just think. I think about my mom, what she's doing and whether ...
... family makes my heart drop. But I try to push those thoughts aside as much as I can, for why worry about the feelings I might have in the future? I shouldn't. But still, reminders of home are everywhere, though I'm sure they will fade. For example, my host dad is a vet, and his clinic is connected to my house, so I am reminded of my dog dexter. Things like that.
So usually the mornings for me are filled with thoughts of home. At 9:30 we have a break ...
