This port is a work in progress. It’s a shipping port and not very pleasant to look at. We chose not to do an excursion, but there are options here and I recommend getting away from the port. There is a large inside building that is very welcoming to visitors. We got our passports stamped and shopped. Jade and stone and silver jewelry is beautiful at good prices. Many unique items here and local culture to learn about. We watched natives perform dances and music it was very nice to see. Very nice people here

Plan to shop for souvenirs here. This is a treasure trove of market stalls filled to overflowing with their hand-sewn and hand- embroidered textiles--tablecloths, place mats, shirts, etc. etc. I bought a $20. flowered bag for myself and two little elephant backpacks 2/$15. for our grandnephews. So cute with the colorful striped fabric. Also bought some turquoise and red coral jewelry, $35. each. The Guatemalans are hospitable and easy to bargain with. They all know a little or a lot of English.
