Antigua – Guatemala – GRANDPAcking Costs

JANUARY 2017: Why not read our Retirement Reviews. OVERVIEW: I made my way from Flores to Antigua by overnight Luxury Bus. In Flores, I stayed in a BELOW GRANDPAcking Standard hotel: the Hotel Posada Tayazal. I booked a Twin Room at the Tayazal at a discounted rate of GTQ80 / night (US$11).
