I pride myself on doing great research for traveling, it’s the most exciting part for my travels for me. I had chosen one hotel in particular in Suchitoto: Las Almendras. However, for the 2 nights that we wanted to be there it was booked, so I needed to fill our first night.

One of my girlfriends had gone to Suchitoto with her family last year. She has 2 boys around B boy’s age and said she fell in love with Las Puertos, which is right in the center. Since we have similar families, I took her advice. I reserved us a room about 2 weeks prior to coming.
After an EXTREMELY long road trip from Guatemala we neared the center of Suchitoto. Slowly our car started to vibrate from the low bass that was emanating from what seemed to be an extremely loud music fair in the pure center. Where our hotel was!
I have lived in Central America for almost 10 years and have heard my share of loud local fairs. But I will swear on everything, this was by far the LOUDEST music I have ever ever heard of. And by the sounds of it, at 9 pm, the show was just getting started.
When I entered the hotel, I was furious! This fair didn’t just happen on the spur of the moment. This was a preplanned event. When I made my reservation I specifically said I have 2 little boys. Not once did they ever tell me about this craziness. Luckily, we didn’t leave a deposit and I said adios in a heart beat.
But now where to?
Las Alemendras, my first choice was booked, so I looked into my little book and found one other, La Posada de Suchitlan. We arrived to the hotel and immediately fell in love.
Now picture this: You are 2 blocks from the center, you enter through an Antigua colonial gate with your car. There is a great parking lot right in front of our villa. The villa is HUGE, with a gorgeous terrace over looking Lake Suchitoto where breakfast will be served, at no extra cost, the following morning.

But that’s not all! The property had a playground, a pool and a great restaurant. And it was cheaper than the other 2 hotels.
When I told my friend about it she nodded her head and said, yeah I know it’s beautiful we ate there every night. WHY DIDN’T SHE RECOMMEND IT???
