Quetzaltenango and nightlife

After a very long day of travelling and meeting an exhausting programme of PHG events. We finally arrived at our Hotel. This was Bonifaz Hotel. I had a room with a balcony overlooking the city square! Quite unbelievable.

The hotel was an old Spanish Colonial building, and it was exactly what a hotel in this part of the world should look like.

It was comfortable, and had a great atmosphere - something from a byegone age of service.

We ate in the hotel, and enjoyed another dinner and breakfast of an exceptionally high quality.

Language Schools

I think I can say that I have never seen any one location with so many Spanish Language Schools. This si the centre of Spanish teaching in Guatemala. The place to study it appears.

The view from the balcony

The room had a very good view of the city square. The only problem is that the cables in Guatemala are always so low.

Looking back to the Pension Bonifaz

This is the view at the far end of the square looking back to the Pension Bonifaz.
