Port Rating: Not Rated
This was Puerto Quetzal, Guatemala. Not listed in options here, so I picked a name that may be it only to open this box for comment..
Two hour bus ride to mountain lake. Boat ride to opposite shore and lunch at a resort hotel.
Time to explore authentic native Mayan village behind hotel was wonderful experience of true native culture. Excellent deals on native crafts if you can withstand the constant barrage of vendors.
A kindly, Gracias, no was usually enough to get them to leave you alone.
Bus ride exposed us to the beauty of the Guatemala countryside and the poverty induced living conditions of the native and Mayan citizens. Our guide on this trip spoke fairly understandable english, but what stood out most was his incredible love for his country and its people. He genuinely wished all of us to return for longer stays to truly appreciate Guatemala and its culture.
