Trip Report Seven days in Guatemala

Jump to last reply

I had wanted to visit Guatemala ever since I saw an article in the New York Times travel magazine. That was at least ten years ago but the day finally came.
I traveled with two other woman and I have to say that this was one of my favorite trips.
We started our trip in Antigua arriving late in the afternoon. I had booked a service so someone would be waiting for us at the airport. This probably wasn't necessary but it's always nice to know someone will be there. We stayed at Casa Florencia our first two nights. It was very clean and the owners helpful. It was a little out of the way but we never mind walking so it was fine for us. Our first night we just walked around to get our bearings and ended up eating at Friedas.
Breakfast was included our first day and it was a very nice buffet. We had booked a hike with Old Town Adventures and they came on time to pick us up. We used Old Town for many of our outings and always had a great time. The guides are very good and professional. We had a great morning hike with a pineapple as a snack. After arriving back in town our guide Rhett treated us to icecream. We quickly went back to our hotel so that we could get ready for our next adventure.. Hiking Pacaya volcano at night. Again we went with Old Town. We were a group of about 12 people and the volcano is about 1.5 hours away. Sadly I got sick on the way.. and I wasn't able to continue. Old Town called someone to come and pick me up and my friends continued. Although I can't comment on the trip my friends said it was excellent. They arrived back at the hotel.. dirty and very tired.
Day 3
Breakfast at Fernando's.. I can't say enough good things about this place. Wonderful coffee, food and chocolate.
Another early pickup from Old Town. Today we are heading to the lake but will ride bikes for part of the way. This trip was excellent. . Not really sure where we started but we rode for quite a few hours. The trip was 70 percent downhill but was still a bit challenging in parts. They made us a nice lunch on the way. One guide rode with us and the other followed us in a van . We ended in Pana and had about an hour to walk around. We had a few drinks and chips before we headed to the dock to catch our boat. Since this was still part of our Old Town trip our guide Ricky came with us. We stayed at Casa Del Mundo. Ricky stayed too as our trip was two days. We really love Casa del Mundo. A great place. We ate our dinner there and used the hot tub before heading off to bed.

Will continue the report tomorrow. I am really not much of a writer and since I can't figure out how to edit .. please just bear with me.
