GUATEMALAN GENES

This blog is the description of my country, Guatemala. A description of its people, its traditions, its folklore, its food, etc. The inspiration came from the desire of giving my friend and her two adoptive children from Guatemala a source to explore their roots. I am writing this for her, for her beautiful children and for all the many other American families like hers. (also find me at www.shoes-and-books.blogspot.com/)

OFFICIAL STOP COMING FROM THE BEACH




When coming down from 'el puerto' de official place to stop is the Sarita in Escuintla. It used to be that the road when through the town passing in front of the original Sarita Hotel/Restaurant/Ice Cream shop. When the toll road was built it bypassed the town but there was a place on the side of the road for Sarita, and that is where we stopped last weekend coming back from our weekend beach getaway!

It is important to mention that Sarita, a guatemalan company, grew from that single shop to a chain of 9 restaurants and thousand of ice cream vendors in Central America.

We've been thinking about going to stay the weekend at this hotel. Is it nice?
