Monterrico is one of the most popular beach spots on the southern coast of Guatemala. It has developed quite a bit in the last decade. Many hotels of all price ranges. Manglar tours on are also making it a eco tourism destination.
This is the first time I have seen a cotton candy vendor walking the beach looking for customers, sweet sunset.

This more than 40 year old bakery and “cakery” is just fabulous. In spanish there is a difference between panadería (where you buy bread) and pastelería (where you buy cakes and usually can also get coffee). It is tucked in an unpaved street. If a local does not tell you about it you will miss it. I was lucky to be introduced to it by a colleague I was working with and since then I don’t know what happened but my car just drove there by itself!
All cakes are great my favorite were coconut pie and cheesecake, but the corn cake and chocolate cake are also delicious. You can also buy bread with local flavors.
I was there during independence celebration so I was able to be get a taste of the traditional food from the festival they do once a year.

During this time I tried two new fruits Jocote Mico and Mangostán, both good but specially the latter one.
Jocote mico my first impression was that it was a green mango but it isn’t. You eat. It peeled and add lemon, and salt. If they are ripper you have to eat sort of sucking it off the stringy core but others don’t have as my strings. I bought a prepared bag for Q3.00.
Mangostan, this one is delicious, sweet, refreshing, juicy I loved them. Have not seen them in the city.
