Very nice staff.
Good location when you like it quite.
Good for kids.

The bus ride from Rio Dulce to Antigua was 3 hours longer than planned due to traffic and an accident. Arrived early evening so we did not see much but will returning in a few days time.
Next morning bussed to Chichicastenango where there is a very big market on Thursdays and Sundays. The local villages bring their produce and crafts to sell.

I suddenly realized in that moment, with the sun shining and laughter in the air, that this is exactly what life is about.
