Monterrico Accommodations

Monterrico is a quiet coastal town along the southern reaches of Guatemala offering vacation rental accommodations. Less than two hours’ ride from the country’s capital, Guatemala City, the small town is a hotspot for travelers wanting to spend a relaxing vacation away from the commotion and noise of big cities. Condo rentals, villa rentals and other types of vacation rentals are available in the town and surrounding region.

With beautiful beaches within walking distance from all villas and accommodations in the community, you can be enjoying the warm, lapping waves of the Pacific Ocean within minutes of arriving in your lodging. One of the first things you will notice in Monterrico is the color of the sand. Where most beaches have light, yellow sand, the volcanic variety of sand present in this town is black. While it is a stunning and unique feature, we don’t recommend braving the beach without flip flops after ten a.m. as it can get quite hot under the sun. Many villa rentals and vacation rentals come with a seaside view.

The beach is a well known breeding ground for sea turtles. Ask one of the locals for details where large deposits of turtle eggs can be found, and if you’re patient enough you just might get to witness a mass release as dozens of baby turtles break free from their shells and head for the ocean. For anyone wishing to take water fun to the next level, the topography of the area is well suited for nice surfing waves.

With temperatures rarely falling below ten degrees Celsius and soaring well into the twenties even during the winter months, a villa rental accommodation in Monterrico is a great idea at any time of the year.

A vacation in Monterrico may also be a good excuse to briefly leave your accommodation and pay a visit to the region’s biggest urban center, Guatemala City. Having been established over two hundred years ago, the city has since grown rich not only in population, but in history and culture. It is home to several regionally renowned museums like Museo Popol Vuh and Museo Ixchel Del Traje Indigena. The former offers funerary ceramics and well-known Maya pottery pieces and artifacts from up to four thousand years ago. The latter has exhibits on textiles and clothing of the Mayans, and paintings, sculptures and more from Guatemala’s indigenous community. The city is also home to a national art museum, an expansive zoo that features a large variety of animals from all corners of the planet, and of course a plethora of traditional and foreign restaurants dedicated to providing the finest dining experiences.
