Anna and I stirred early for yoga on our last morning in San Marcos, before heading to the nearby jetty, for the short ride across the lake. After asking directions a few times, we eventually found the hostel we were looking for. Whilst the rooms at Zoola were rustic, to say the least, the communal areas were wonderful. A long stretch of low tables, with colourful cushions and low slung lighting, led down from reception, past the bar and on to the reason we were there. A beautiful lakeside pool lay at the end and with the awesome views, hostels don't get much better!
The pool was a big hit and a wonderful way to cool off, without having to dip in the lake; which was sadly significantly more rubbish strewn and polluted, in San Pedro
Still feeling pretty zen on my last day there, I headed off back to Antigua, whilst Anna decided to explore the lake a little more. The shuttle back was pretty nerve wracking, as it careered around tightly curved uphill stretches, however I made it in one piece and back into the welcoming arms of Casa Amarilla.
