Where I stayed
We arrived in the evening and in the dark and was confronted by ´The Maze´, apart from the main street all of the streets are little winding paths, it took a long time to find Acculax where we stayed, no lights so we also had to use our torch, pretty crazy.... couldn´t wait to see the lake in the morning.
The lake is so picturesque, check out the pictures. Even managed to talk Ren into having a massage, so we both had an hours Shiatsu massage, it was so nice and also a little strange, you get your limbs pulled around and stuff and also massaged, still pretty relaxing too.
Ok the bad part about San Marcos, guess!! Yep there were loads of spiders and a couple of scorpions, the spiders really freaked Emz out, they always came out at night and there were always some in our room. They weren´t as big as the nasty one in Belize, but still made British spiders look like ants. One evening we had to get someone who worked at the lodge to remove the spiders and one scorpion from our room, it was so nasty.
