Found a place

Pasajcap Campground, Sololá Department, Guatemala
Checkout is at 11 a.m. so I'm going to catch an early boat to San Marcos. The Casita I'm going to look at is halfway between San Marcos and Tzununa. It's actually NNW across the street from Passajcap campground (an enclosed area for RVs). The place looks okay and the Wi-Fi works. The owner is out of town so I sent a message saying I would take the place.

The boats here are worse than the buses as far as trying to keep a schedule. They wait until they get a certain number of passengers before they depart, so you never know exactly when you're going to arrive somewhere. When I got to San Marcos I took a tuktuk to Gaia Maya, the name of the Casita, which is about a half hour walk. After looking the place over I took another tuktuk back to San Marcos, then waited around for a boat going to Pana.

I got to the hotel about 11:15 but they weren't concerned about the checkout time. So I packed my stuff, checked out, and hung out in the lobby for a little bit. I checked to see if I'd gotten responses from the other places I was hoping to look at, but no emails from anyone.

They needed to clean up the place I was looking at so they told me not to return before 3 or 4 in the afternoon. I had lots of time to kill, and I was going to need groceries, so I headed over to the large supermarket in town. I bought $100 worth of groceries, including a fifth of Bacardi Anejo for $8. Then I went down to the boats and waited for one going to San Marcos.
I got to the casita at about 2:30 and the lady was still cleaning, so I just hung around outside sitting in a chair until she was finished. Then I moved in my groceries, unpacked my clothes, and got settled in.
