My kind of place to have a meal at!!! Awesome:)) Gabriel, I wonder if it
would be hard to find hotels without wifi?

Hoz Holla says:

Much cheaper to eat off the street vendors. Have you had any problems with
“Mayan Revenge” or Tourista?

Rob Fenton says:

I bought your guide to budget travel by the way! No doubt it will be a good
read, hopefully it can help pay towards a hostel for a night or something

nachos again ?!?!?!? :-)

Hoz Holla says:

I suppose, would they double the price on “private rooms” if there were 2
traveling together?

Karl Mckernan says:

Great informative video. Noticed the Lonely Planet guide, I just bought
that edition off E Bay has it come in handy?

Samuel John says:

Love all your videos, take care and be safe 

Ms_Santos says:

Gabriel, Since you stay for several weeks at a place from time time. Do you
ever make any friends with the locals? If so do you keep in touch with any?

tvwere says:

Great video man.. I’ll be visiting in August. +1 if you played “Shes A
Rainbow” at 9:50.

Dan Schlinz says:

You hostel looks very nice from inside but when you ventured out it started
to look a bit scary. Are you cautious to walk the streets at night there?

Scott Mills says:

Have you ever thought about haggling Gabriel? Although the prices are
cheap, it’s always worth a haggle to try and get it a little cheaper 🙂
