I’d like to introduce you to Manuel & Jodie, a couple of experienced world travelers that also happen to own Quetzalroo Hostel in Guatemala City, Guatemala.

They showed me around the city while I was their guest, and I probably wouldn’t have seen or learned as much if it hadn’t been for them. These two are a prime example of the types of friendly, interesting people you always meet on the road.
