TravelPod Member ReviewsHotel Los Encuentros Antigua Guatemala
A lovingly decorated passage with reception desk and dining area towards the front leads onto toilets and (hot...yes!) showers down one side and rooms down the other and at the back.

Good Friday was the biggest day for ...

Slovenly Man Publicly Announces Need To Keep Low Profile
San Pedro la Laguna - Cleverly disguised in a filthy t-shirt, low-hanging shorts and unkempt beard, an American man loudly explained to the entire boat that his main reason for being in Guatemala was to remain in hiding from the U.S. authorities, many of whom are currently attempting to locate him with regard to an ...
... there. Soon. Just this curve. Just this hill. Just this hill! Finally the others came into view, who found a good spot for the tents. I started laughing of exhaustion and relief, as I was letting my backpack fall on the floor and giving a hand with building up the tents. It was three o'clock in the afternoon. Harsh conditions on 3600m, the wind was stronger and the fog even heavier. Miserable circumstances for sunset on the top, we were all aware of this. We escaped in ...
