airbnb Monterrico, Guatemala

Loosen yourself in the relaxing atmosphere of Monterrico, meet new friends and have a chat over great food. Home to the most popular beaches of Guatemala, prepare your swimming gear and get ready to soak up the sun here. One of the activities you do not want to miss is the releasing of turtle hatchlings. During the turtle season, you can release a baby turtle into the sea for a small fee. These proceeds go to helping the turtle hatchery which helps to conserve turtle eggs. If you want to get close to nature, make a trip to the mangrove swamp. The mangrove tours begin as early as 5.30am so you can catch the beautiful sunrise. And if the weather is good, you can even get a great view of the volcano. After all the walking, you’ll need some food to satisfy your hunger. One of the best restaurants is El Pelicano located behind Johnny’s Place but make a note in your itinerary that it’s closed on Mondays and Tuesdays. You can also dine at beach restaurants and watch the amazing sunset while you eat. Your trip to Monterrico is not complete without booking one of the top Airbnb vacation rentals on our list below.
