This was a nice place, very historic but comfortable. The service was excellent and the location was very good. We would stay here again.

We're then broken up into smaller groups to better deal with the ...
... to myself. Once again I ate breakfast in the sunny courtyard, this time reading Rigoberta Menchu. I then went for a run up to the lookout point again, and I ran into the cutest Guatemalan ladies that became my cheerleaders as I was running up all the stairs to the top. My day was already made at that point, but just to make it extra great I TOOK A CHOCOLATE MAKING CLASS. I learned a bunch of ff, like cocoa comes from South America, but was brought ...
