TravelPod Member ReviewsSantander Plaza Hotel Guatemala City
This place was beautiful. We stayed in cabins. My only complaint was the space. We were like sardines in a can, but I guess they really know how to maximize space! The food was delicious and the staff was very courteous. Because it was gated and guarded, we felt very secure there.

... so cheap on account of all the flies they had emanating from that place. One thing that angered me at Zoola was that the book with the details of the length of one`s stay etc was inacurrate regarding my account, so the boy on duty last night said he would speak to the lady who usually works at reception. On the 18th I had paid for a 3rd night stay (Q100) after I had paid for the mandatory 2 night`s. I have to speak to the lady when I check out, and I hope she will play nice! ...
... booked a hike up Pacaya - the most accessible of the nearby volcanoes - and wandered around the very pleasant colonial surroundings of Antigua. As it is such a hive of volcanic and tectonic activity, there are plenty of old ruins to check out, and the Parque Central is a beautiful old square.

... all our shuttle travel from 2 different travel agencies without a word of English. We understood times, destinations, return dates, transfers, cost, etc. We were pretty stoked after that. Hopefully we will be able to have a basic conversation by the time we finish school on Sunday night.
We have decided to head off to a nice lake for Xmas, its called Lake Atitlan and its a couple of hours from Antigua. So we've got one more night with the host family, then we'll get a hostel ...
... in the pictures were made out of tissue paper taped together and supported by bamboo poles. They were elaborately painted and displayed beautifully. These kites did not fly but there were many smaller ones that filled the skies. We came to Antigua, Guatemala primarily to learn Spanish, but it has given us so much more than language: it has given us a chance to make great international and local friends, and to learn more about this beautiful country than one can read about in a travel ...
... tough here (thankfully). As is the case with many old colonial cities, at the center of Antigua is a park/plaza (Parque Central/Plaza Central) surrounded on the sides by a church (Cathedral of San Jose), the government buildings and police station. From here you can walk towards the Arc of Santa Catalina. This is probably the most iconic image and most photographed structure in the city. Continue on past the small shops (many Jade shops) and ...
