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.

After the day we piled back into the pick up for the arduous ...
... in Hostal Holistico. We loved it here with its free and varied breakfasts, constant flow of free tea and coffee, juice and little snacks and friendly staff. Even on days when we were leaving before breakfast time, the lovely night porter Luis would make us up a packed breakfast of fried egg and pesto sandwiches and lollipops. Too cute.
From Antigua we visited Pacaya Volcano- a main reason for our visit to the region. This is an active volcano, which ...
It was tough leaving Lanquin and our little piece of paradise but we managed to drag ourselves away and get on the minibus for another hellish 8 hour trip, this time to Antigua.
