In the evenings it gets dark quickly; normally by 6:00 pm. We eat dinner around that time- sometimes at a local restaurant, sometimes at McDonalds, or we might have "street food", made by local Guatemalans. The street food costs $1-2 per sandwich (or serving). McDonalds or Burger King costs as much or a bit more than in the United States, $2-3 per person (we usually get the Dollar Menu). Restaurants cost between $5-20 per plate.
After eating, we head back to the hostel. Sometimes we watch a movie on the internet, or if we have spent the afternoon in town we do our blogging and email-checking or reading at night. I prefer vacations to be relaxed, but yet not boring. This vacation has been all of that, in addition to being educational yet still affordable because of our cheap accommodations, food and transportation. A great balance.
Do you like vacations to be more relaxed, or packed with activities? Why?
