Day 5 Part 1 - Guatemala countryside, Casa Santo Domingo Hotel

Thursday, March 2, 2000

Day 5 Part was a "free day", so we took a road trip to the city of Antigua in central Guatemala -- not the island of Antigua! -- to do some sightseeing.  Our first stop was to see the famous, five-star Casa Santo Domingo hotel, where US President Clinton stayed during his visit to Guatemala in 1999.
