Comments : As far as beaches are concerned, this is the travelers' favorite
What to do ? Go at the beginning of the week / Enjoy the panoramas of the nature reserve / Walk the black sand beach / Watch turtles heading for the sea (turtle nesting ground) / Explore the mangrove swamp on a cayuco /
What you may not like ? It is tricky to reach as you have to change bus a couple of times (first to Taxisco, then to La Avellana, then a boat) / It is noisy and full of locals (some drunk) from Guatemala city during WE / It is therefore tricky to find cheap accomodation on Thursday, Friday & WE. / The rubbish / The relatively higher price for accomodation (up by 50% during WE) /
How long ? It's up to you !
Where to stay ? Most are on the beach. You should be able to find something in the Q30-50 range during the week. Prices go up by 50% during the WE.
Where to eat ? At the hotels or at a comedor in the village
