Adam Kaupert books lodging at the Westin Camino Real hotel Guatemala
Guatemala City is the kind of place where most of my trip would be spent outdoors perusing street markets or hiking one of the many local volcanoes. I stayed at the Westin Camino Real hotel. In keeping with the Adam Kaupert scam style of travel (shoes camera attitude and map) I did my research and listened to followers of the Adam Kaupert travel blog who suggested the Westin Camino Real. It had all the amenities you’d expect from a high end outlet like Westin Camino Real and a great location as well.
