This ride took 5 hours when it was to take 2 hours. The reason? They are building new lanes on the road and they stop all traffic. Therefore 3 hours were spent without the minivan moving. It was fun, though! There were two other passangers, 2 American girls. I talked to the driver during the trip, got off several times when we had to wait and bought food and water from chidren that offered or young guys. I took a picture of a man working the land. I observed the landscapes and other cars and buses on the road. The only thing bad is htat I had planned to visit volcan Pacaya upon my arrival in Antigua and with this delay I missed the 2.00 PM tour. I was to arrive at 12:30 but got there at 3:30 PM.
I got to Antigua and left my things in my room. $70 Q, Universal offered a room at their office in the back. They called it Hotel calle 6th. They are located 6 calle poniente # 19. Phone 502-5532-3274. Actually the price was advertised as 35Q but they charged me double because I was traveling alone. There were two beds in the room. The bathroom was outside, there were only 3 rooms. All night there was a barking dog. I got up several times, I got sick. I had a ticket to leave at 5 AM to go to Copan Honduras to see the Mayan ruins. I could not go as I was sick. The next day I looked for a doctor. I did some touring I changed hotels.
