Antigua and hiking Volcano Acatanango

GUATEMALA | Wed, 15 Jul 2015 | By sheree | Views [675]

Even though it was only 4 hours from Lake Atitlan to Antigua the shuttle ride made it feel worse than a 15 hour bus ride. It was a little shuttle and I was on a small, hard fold out seat at the very front in between the driver and passenger seat. Extremely ... Read more >

Getting to where I am (Antigua, Guatemala) was a rough start. I don´t want to get into it, but between car troubles and lost taxi drivers I hope all my bad luck was used up back in the states. I was picked up at the airport last night by a driver ... Read more >

Local knowledge and scams in Antigua and Barbuda

ANTIGUA & BARBUDA | Fri, 25 May 2012 | By safetyhub | Views [589]

Altiplano Llama Sausage

BOLIVIA | Wed, 15 Feb 2012 | By doodledawn | Views [711]

As I type, I am sitting in an internet cafe in Oruro, Bolivia.  It is cold as hell, and the altitude is around 3700m, but I think coming here was definitely a great idea. Backing up a bit, I spent most of the last week at Lago de Atitlan in Guatemala.... Read more >

GUATEMALA | Wed, 1 Apr 2009 | By rachel_and_daniel | Views [2221]
