TravelPod Member ReviewsHotel Peninsular Monte Real Monte Gordo
The actual building was beautiful or could be beautiful but our room was extremely dirty (very mouldy and dirty toilets, showers and sheets)and the locks didn't really work. There wasn't any safety box either in the room or at the front desk - you could put your valuables in an envelope, closed with sticky tape, under the counter of the front desk (which we didn't do). There were notices on the doors saying that you should lock all personal items up before leaving your room which didn't give us alot of confidence. But other than that there wasn't alot of choice and it was only a couple of nights.

... stopped once for a potty break. Girls were getting hungry, but I wanted to keep my fastfood tally to essentially zero for this trip - and there were NO McD's stops! Our only fast food stop on this trip was to Chick-fil-A in SLC!!
It was HOT when we got home. And the fridge was bare - so after we unloaded the car D went grocery shopping. Made a fast dinner so we could go ...
Jellard's eye was 95% better, so we decided to split the driving this time. I did the first leg to the Guatemalan/Mexican border and then Jellard took over. Leaving Guatemala and entering Mexico as a private individual was pretty painless. However, importing the car into Mexico was quite another matter. Crossing the border was no problem, but the car had to be imported at a location 90 kms further ...
... were standard Murray's bus size but the backs were a lot softer so I fell asleep almost straight away. First overnight bus... Tick. San Cristobal is a quaint little town up in the mountains in southern Mexco (in the Chiapas region for those who know Mexico) not far from the Guatemalan border. There isn't a huge amount to do there but it's one of the welcoming places where you can quite happily wile away a few days just wandering around the town. I stayed in ...
... being deserted towards the end of the eight century, the jungle reclaimed much of the city and today around 90% of the site remains unrestored. Prior to our visit to the temples and palaces, we were taken on an early morning jungle trek to seek out some of the uncovered structures, including the aptly named Forgotten Temple, and spy some local wildlife including bats and howler monkeys. Following the trek we took a short path and all of a sudden the ...
