Guatemala City is no faerie kingdom. Enter the gates of the Hotel San Carlos, a shuttle-drive away from the airport, and one is enveloped in a mansion-like atmosphere of warm, professional attention. Smiles and support from staff, nearby banking and restaurant options, and the US embassy down the street combine with a charming garden, complete with humming birds and jungle flora. A unique, protective place.
