Later visit the volcanic hot springs ‘Fuentes Georginas’, where the ride alone to the hot springs makes this excursion worth it, due to its breathtaking views of mountains and volcanoes. You will be dazzled when you see the steam floating and surely you will soak up in the pools. 

Day 9. El Paredon beach

It is undoubtedly one of the best beaches in the country and one of its best-kept secrets. The experience of discovering this beach is too uncommon to compare. It is a rural fishing small town on a delicate black sand beach with palm trees, hammocks, and surfers.

The laid-back fishing town of ‘El Paredon’, with just one dirt road through town that dead-ends at a river full of tropical mangrove, is off the beaten track, so not many tourists go there. However, with its delightful black sand beach, surfing conditions, gorgeous sea turtles, and slowed down the pace of daily life, it will not remain hidden from the eye of the tourists for much longer. 

The couple of “restaurants” in the village are found on picnic tables in the front yard of a local house with a small sign showing the menu of the day. There are no ATMs (it is necessary to bring cash), no souvenir shops, and no supermarkets. What travelers find here is a natural charm, a relaxing environment, and an authentic resident community.

Day 10. Sea Turtles

As it may be, the best part of this beach is that you do not have to do much. Your hotel has a laid back fine beach vibe with enough hammocks to rest in while spending the day reading a book and watching the awesome waves.

Release a baby sea turtle! Yes, you may be able to release a recently hatched baby sea turtle into the ocean. Collecting turtle eggs is not illegal in the country, but the collectors must give 20% of the eggs they pick up to local hatcheries in order to conserve the turtle population. 

Also, hotels in the area donate to the hatchery so that they can buy more eggs from the collectors, an excellent example of responsible tourism working together with the local community.

Most mornings at 6:00 am, take a walk down the beach to the local hatchery where you will be able to engage in the release of the recently hatched baby sea turtles. Each person gets to hold their own baby turtle and let it go as it races with up to hundreds of its companions down the black sand beach en route to the brilliant light of the Pacific Ocean.

Day 11. Guatemala City

Today your driver will take you to Guatemala City after a relaxing morning at the beach.

Day 12. Departure

Sadly this wellness holiday has come to an end today, however, if you would like to extend or personalize your itinerary, please do not hesitate to email us. Today a driver will take you to the international airport for your flight back home.
