finished reading the Destination Guide. It was a quick read, and
as in your “main” book that I bought previously, nicely spiced by all the
photos, including those of my favorite topic (no, not you guys, sorry!)—food! I
am at a decision point where I can take an early retirement/severance package or
continue for another few years of stress but good $$. Trying to sort it out.
Your book was a welcome diversion and perspective.
Just got back from my first visit
to Lake Chapala. Definitely won't be the last. You guys are right on the mark -
it's a beautiful place. Thanks for your advice and for steering me there. Hope
next time we get a chance to meet.
I stay in the
Chapala area the months of January and February -
then July and August every year. I went there
originally because of your book The Chapala Guide. I am unable to retire
because of family reasons, however, my life is great
- 8 months here and 4 months there works out great.
I do not take a car to Lakeside - buses are easy and
walking is great. Thank you for everything including
saving my life. The need to get away is big
sometimes, and the Chapala area is perfect for my
appreciate you forever.
You Both! You are great writers and really turn a fine eBook, my favorite
literary media. After all, as another travel wonk I know the value of being
able to read 8 titles at once and have them at my fingertips immediately. This
book is just even juicier than even the related webpage’s and was totally worth
teasing these electrons from this dodgy Guatemalan connection. I knew I'd need
this very readable "weightless" Travel guide to "carry along" as I left behind
spectacular Central America's impending rainy season for the Sunny climate of
Mexico's beautiful South Pacific beaches.
We just returned from a fine trip to the Highlands of Mexico. Thanks for your help in planning our journey. As an added bonus I had all of my dental needs taken care of in Ajijic. I paid 25% of what it would have cost in the states and it was done very quickly and professionally.
We continue to enjoy your website. Keep up the good work.
Cheers, Dennis & Winnie
Kudos for writing another descriptive, informative and useful guide, this time for Guatemala! I used The Adventurer's Guide to Guatemala as my primary resource, in addition to Lonely Planet and online research. I followed your recommendations on day trips in Antigua and was not disappointed. The cultural museum and the macadamia nut farm were especially interesting! The information you provided on lake Atitlan was also helpful. What a beautiful place!
One attraction I would like to recommend to fellow adventurers: the alluring natural turquoise colored pools of Semuc Champey. Tropical, mountainous Semuc Champey makes a wonderful 1-2 day stopover for those enroute to Tikal or Rio Dulce/Livingston, and there are convenient shuttles and chicken buses to Flores and Rio Dulce.
I heartily recommend your guide to anyone traveling to Guatemala. Your stories and thoughtful photos really inspire one to get out an explore. Keep up the great work!
