The other people in my group and I thought that lunch, even though it was in a beautiful restuarant, was too long (one hour). We were finished in about 40 minutes and were ready to get going. Also, beware of the jade factory. I found cheaper jade jewelry (store was able to provide certificate) at another store in Guatemala City. Do your research first before buying jewelry."

* A traveler said: "Guatemala City is very under-rated as a place to see. It would be difficult to navigate this city and see all the sights the city has to offer (and which are horribly under-publicized) without a professional guide. The most important and interesting sights (the anthropology museum, the Relief Map, Kaminal Juyu) are scattered all over the city. Esteban was an excellent guide (and an excellent driver, although, by Latin American standards, Guatemala City would not be a particularly scary place in which to drive). Esteban did an excellent job of improvising and adjusting as the government has closed a few, very important sights (such as the anthropology museum) suddenly, without notice"
