Overview Of The Port Of Puerto Quetzal

About Puerto Quetzal
Puerto Quetzal is Guatemala's largest Pacific Ocean port, located in central South America.

Puerto Quetzal’s best activity is sightseeing by boat. Visitors can go on sailing and fishing trips in an area called Marina Pez Vela within the larger terminal.

Monterrico Nature Reserve & Hawaii National Park (Biotopo Monterrico-Hawaii) is located in the neighbouring city of Monterrico. There is also a nice beach here.

Nearby Retalhuleu is where you can visit the Museum of Archaeology and Ethnology. Xocomil Waterpark (Acuatico Xocomil) is also here.

The city of Antigua is famous for its well-preserved Spanish Baroque architecture and has number of spectacular ruins of colonial churches. It is also a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Lake Atitlán is recognised to be the deepest lake in Central America with maximum depth about 340m and is framed by three volcanos.

Tikal is one of the largest archaeological sites of the pre-Columbian Maya civilization. The site is part of Guatemala's Tikal National Park and a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Most shops are located at Antigua and Guatemala City but you may find limited selections in neighbouring towns. Local handicrafts such as woven purses and bags, belts, blouses and blankets are popular buys.

Guatemalan cuisine is a combination of Spanish, European and Indian. You will find seafood, fish and meat dishes on menus. Try the 'hot bananas', prepared with chili and chocolate sauce, chicken pepian and red snapper with cashews, which is a local speciality.

Guatemalans are also experts when it comes to making coffee.
