Several years ago, my wife and I spent two weeks on Bali. We stayed in Ubud in a small bed and breakfast, which was actually just a room in somebody's house, but the breakfasts were some of the best that I've had in my life. Pancakes, fresh fruit, fresh mango juice. We decided that we wanted to explore the island, so we asked our host about renting a car.

The PERFECT Holiday
My GF and I were lucky enough to spend four nights in Phinda Mountain Lodge followed by four nights in Phinda Forest Lodge (we won 2 four night auctions and combined them) in May this year.

The Filadelfia Coffee Resort and Spa http://www.rdaltoncoffee.com/5_1_hotel.htmlwas the best choice we could have made for our recent brief stops in Antigua, Guatemala.
We wanted some flexibility as we intended spending most of our holiday out at Lake Atitlan at Casa Palopo. Thanks to Jim Sanchez at LL, we were able to split the three night package, thereby allowing us a respite of one night in and two nights out on the drive to and from Santa Catarina Palopo.
