Lovely, older hotel in a great location. The staff was very accommodating when we had a plumbing problem in our bathroom. And then when the room that they wanted to put us in had a strong mold odor, they came up with another room for us that was really nice. And this, on one of the busiest tourist times of the year! The, included, breakfast every morning was excellent and more than filling!

Complex N is one out of seven twin pyramid complexes found in Tikal. Its northern enclosure holds reproductions of Altar 5 and Stella 16, which are among the finest monuments that survived being exposed to the elements for years. The originals may ...
... with them. They're all brightly coloured ex-US school buses. Riding one is quite an experience, with the diesel engine chugging away, the driver squeezing it between other buses while leaning liberally on the horn and the driver's mate leaning out the door shouting "Antigua Antigua Antigua!", trying to get more people to hop on.
Antigua is a odd-looking fantasy land, with cobbled streets and brightly coloured low-level buildings, nothing even mildly high rise. It ...
