A magical place

The small walk/hike was worth it. The caves were marvelous and the waterfalls were breathtaking.
May 2019

My family and I stayed at Hotel Villa Santa Elena for Easter. Since I contacted them to make the reservation I received good attention and they gave me the information requested. The stay was pleasant, the hotel is clean, safe and the staff friendly. Very tasty food and very affordable prices. I invite you to plan a trip to Chahal, Alta Verapaz and know the National Park Las Conchas and Caves of Setzol. Beautiful places of my beautiful Guatemala.
