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

... stands for one month of the Maya calendar year. We wandered around the markets but didn't end up buying anything. Dylan was looking for some fireworks but didn't have any success. I found the markets a bit overwhelming as there is so much stuff!! We met Rafael and the rest of the group back at Los Cofrades restaurant and left at 12:45. I listened to some music on the drive back to the hotel and took in the scenery. Poor Nele had to make an emergency toilet stop in the bush ...
