I am the manager of a family owned hotel in Quetzaltenango, Guatemala. Hotel Modelo was founded in 1892, and in 1912 was bought by don Fidel Miralbes. Four generations have been involved in the hotel, and all these years have helped us get a better understanding of our guest's needs.
On which destinations & travel topics can you advise members especially well?
What destinations are you most interested in learning about?
Thanks, JM! Yes, everything went well, and the trips to Atitlán and Petén afterward were fascinating. I hope you had a good CATM (check out the pics posted on the site today). I'm so glad we got to meet but sorry we didn't have more time -- running around, you know, and then had to leave Antigua unexpectedly early to make the flight to Flores. But you can be sure I'll be back very soon, and will be looking forward to checking out your part of the country, too! In the meantime, I hope you'll encourage your English-speaking colleagues and associates to use us as a resource and networking/marketing tool.
Perfecto, me avisas, por favor! Leave me a message here and hopefully we can find each other. I would also suggest, by the way, adding your hotel name and web site to your profile. It would be great to get more info about it! I may even be in Quetzaltenango at some point during the trip -- I need to check.
