Allen Asked, Will I Find a Hotel When I Arrive at Lake Atitlan? #hotels

I go to places all the time with NO place to stay and have NEVER had an issue finding one. Once, I stayed in the home of an ex police chief. I went with a backpack and started asking the immigration control people if they knew of anyone that rented rooms (this was before airbnb) and they didn't know anyone. The chief showed up to ship some things to another island, and gave me his spare room! I've had this happen more than once. I always take a camp hammock just in case I'm ever stranded. But it's never happened. You can ALWAYS find something! ANYWHERE

Honestly, especially in Mexico and Central America, folks will take you home and feed you and often not even expect anything in return. Now, I am a middle aged woman, but I know of guys that have done the same thing. And btw, My Spanish SUCKS
