Very Good

This was our surprise favorite port. It was amazing to see the lush vegetation and mountains as we pulled into the port. We took the excursion to Quirigua Archaelogical site and our guide was so informative and passionate about Guatemalan history. We got to see some of the most well preserved monuments of the entire Mayan world. Amazing! The sendoff the people gave us at the end of the day was very special too.

We did not take any excursions at this port. The best part of our visit to this port was the terminal. The shopping there is a lot of fun. There was great entertainment by a marimba band and some young dancers. The farewelly by the residents/workers at the sail-away was a real hoot.

This is a newish port, and there isn't much there, other than a welcome center. The welcome center has some local dancing/singing entertainment and a large group of vendors. The best items there to buy are textiles and coffee. Again, be sure to barter for a good price.
