“Good restaurants & nice for walking around”
Reviewed December 16, 2011

Nice intro to Guatemalan life from a 1st-world perspective. Plenty of restaurants and night life (albeit it higher-priced) in a fairly safe area to stroll. Hides the seedier, reality-of-life side of the city, but a good intro nonetheless to ease one into the facts of life in Guate.
