A famous place located in the Coast of Pacific of Guatemala. It is a perfect city to enjoy on the weekend and has lately got on the list of good tourist destinations in Guatemala.
Biotopo Monterrico – Hawaii
I’d prefer this place to be a great sunrise spot. This place basically offers wildlife and natural beauty tour. I had a guide with me who showed me volcanoes in the distance, and the animals and plants around. There is also a village nearby and I would highly recommend going there to get a better experience of the trip. There is also a boat tour experience. I could see flying fishes, local fisherman busy in their craft and also pelican flocks.
Tortugario Monte Rico
This sanctuary offers a great informative experience to every visitor. I went there during the day where I could enjoy the beach with getting to see turtles, crocs, iguanas. Everyone in the sanctuary was friendly and made the experience worthwhile. One can also go during the time the turtles hatch their eggs. It is more of an educational tour and is very cost friendly.
Parque Acuatico H2Olas
This water park in the city of Monterrico and is a great getaway destination for people of all age groups. A truck picked me up to reach the water park offers as it offers transportation services. The place has mangroves. There are also good restaurants and I also played in the sports courts available in H2Olas. The camping area here added to the fun element of my visit.
CECON Turtle Hatchery
Here, you can find a water tank full of turtles. When I went there, I found a lot of turtle eggs buried in the sand. I went in November and then that is the best month for sighting. You can even “sponsor” a turtle. It is a once in a lifetime experience and highly unique.
