A Hip Beachside Town
Landing in Guatemala City you will start your journey to the Pacific coast to reach the stunning, hip coastal town of Monterrico, with its sandy beaches and powerful surf, sitting in the heart of the Biotopo Monterrico–Hawaii, a nature reserve that embraces a 20km-long beach, home to turtle-nesting grounds, and wildlife rich wetlands.
Life here has a slow, tropical vibe, with rustic wooden-slat and thatched-roof architecture and awesome volcanoes that shimmer in the distance. During the week it's relatively quiet, but on weekends and holidays it explodes with visitors. It's a fun and beautiful place to be based.
Breakfast and lunch only at the hostel. Dinner will be extra in one of the local cafes. Expect lots of local in international dishes on the menu.
