Merry Christmas to Us

This year for Christmas, James and I gave each other a trip around Guatemala. It was a BIG trip, so the posts will be coming in parts. 

After getting up at 4 a.m. and driving for 11 hours, our first stop was the beautiful island of Las Flores. 

James fell in love with the town right away. The island is small enough that nearly every building has a water front. The whole island is surrounded by a stone walk way and beautiful piers. This was the view from our $10 hotel the first night we stayed in Las Flores. 

The hotels also had a look out on top of the building. The weather was wonderful and I loved laying in the hammocks and listening to the birds. 

That night we went on a boat ride around the island and were able to climb an un earthed Mayan watch tower that one of the kings had built.
