This is a family home, parents + a university student. The other Kids moved out so there are empty rooms. the House is located in Carretera a el Salvador,In Guatemala City up in the mountain. You will get some nice views from the city also. going up the mountain In (website hidden) maps seems so far away, but actually is not that far once you get to know Guatemala getting there is easier than in the middle of the city, also the public buss that go in our direction are better and safe also the ones going down. In a very nice area. Don´t have to worry about security while you are here. You can walk around the neighborhood. Really Fresh area. There's the option of putting an extra bed and we have extra rooms and beds by request. also or if you come in groups and you have your sleeping bags you are welcome also. or we could arrange something maybe air mattresses.
By arrangement Breakfast could be provided. Pickup & drop off to the airport $ 25 cash for all of you, you don't have to pay each of you 25$ only one time. this includes both ways or we could drop you off somewhere else in the city or help you by taking you to the bus stop for tour buses. So you don´t have to worry about carrying your bags all around the city, in Guatemala there aren't really shuttle services, taxis aren't that cheap, So you can feel relax and safe.
price for this can be discussed. If we are going down the mountain you can ride with us for free. or any rides you might nee that are not in our plans, we will just ask you help us with gas. You are welcome to use all the facilities internet computer, TV. washing machine, etc. If you need to smoke please do so out side in the field. Rides to the city also can be arrange by arrangement. Dad could be a fantastic tour guide and if you give him a good offer he could take you somewhere nice, our drop you off somewhere. As he travels regularly.
Guatemala City is really big. so no matter where you stay you will need 30 min to 1 hour to get somewhere. the house might seem far from downtown, but Carretera a el Salvador is a more exclusive area. There are many easy ways to get downtown.
If you need to smoke you can go to the front graden!
I stayed at Mario’s place for 6 nights and had a good time with his family. They picked me up at airport, dropped me off at bus station to Antigua, and treated me as if a family member. Although Mario had away from home, he responded very quickly and no problem of communications at all. I recommend anyone who wants to stay a fresh air and relax atmosphere in Guatemala City.
