Monterrico Guatemala

Now for the BEACH. We set out from Antigua in the mountains and at a pleasant 24 degrees, but as we drove closer to the coast it was 35 degrees.

The drive here is nice and with very few of the dreaded tope. You pay a 5Q toll to cross the bridge over the canal in the mangroves to get access to Monterrico, which is a small town on the coast.

There are quite a few restaurants and small hotels. There is of course lots of seafood.

The sand is black and very fine. The ocean is like bathwater it is so warm.

The coast of Guatemala is straight without bays and there is only open ocean in front of you. This makes for s spectacular sunset.
