My cousin and I were in Guatemala the end of October and beginning of November on a Caravan tour. I've tried to make this report as short as I could while still retaining the flavor of the trip and telling the things I would like to have known. It was the end of the rainy season when we arrived, but it was warm. I brought a sweater and a rain jacket, wore the sweater maybe twice and never wore the jacket because it would have been too hot. When it rained, I just put up my umbrella. Throughout the week, I talked to a few people who had minor tummy problems but nothing that had anyone rushing to the bus toilet. The hotels where we stayed were great, and the food was good. For most of the meals we had buffets, and often the choices were extensive. Our tour director was Guillermo. He is smart, witty, hard working, and is able to impart his love for, and knowledge of, Guatemala. There was always bottled water on the bus, and we were able to take as much of it as we wanted. The age range in our group varied from a couple in their late 30s/early 40s to two WWII vets.
