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.

... incident. We stayed in a very nice hostel in Leon. My view might not be popular, but I do not understand people’s fascination with this city. Travel writers on blogs, travel guides etc. describe the city as fascinating, having edge and awe-inspiring churches, we found a slightly dilapidated city with the main activity being volcano boarding and many travellers staying here
for a week or two for Spanish classes. There are several ...
... 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 ...
... we just can't). But it was about a cup of rice with every meal. We mostly ate the food that we liked first followed by the rice but we couldn't be rude and just leave the rice so we tried to eat at least half the serving. Our stomachs could just not process the huge amounts of rice we were ingesting. It was so bad that I had to go to a pharmacy to ask for something to relieve the discomfort. (Will not go into much more detail here).
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 ...
... 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 ...
