Puerto Quetzal is located 45 miles south of Guatemala City, the country's capital.

Many travelers would agree that exploring their destination's local strip of beach while on vacation is at the top of their wish list. San Jose Beach, which is 7 miles west, is a wonderful place to satisfy your soul.

14 miles from Puerto Quetzal is Monterrico. Head here and visit Chiquimulilla Canal and Monterrico Beach.

What is time away in a new place without digging your teeth into some good food? Escuintla is a prime spot to satisfy your tastebuds!

To discover the true flavors of the region, try out regional ingredients like beans (frijoles) and chicken.

Any enthusiastic foodie should ensure they order chiles rellenos (bell peppers stuffed with meat and vegetables) and gallo en chicha (chicken stew) before moving on to other types of local cuisine.

Every visitor should try coconut flan, a well-regarded, delightful treat.

The restaurants in Escuintla just about always serve Victoria, so order one if you enjoy a good brew.

If you are not really a drinker, tea is the popular local beverage you'll love.

It doesn't matter whether you are a casual traveler, a wine connoisseur or a casual traveler who likes to think that they are a wine connoisseur, you will most likely be glad to know that this area is home to a selection of local wines, including Château DeFay White Merlot and Château DeFay Cabernet Sauvignon/Merlot.

The authentic spirit of a country echoes not just within its landscape, but also within its language. Taking the care to practice just a few handy greetings and expressions in Spanish will make your stay in Puerto Quetzal both easier and infinitely richer. "¿Querría bailar conmigo?" translates to "Would you like to dance with me?" in Spanish. Or, try pronouncing "Este caballero pagará por todo" (This gentleman will pay for everything).

Enjoy the annual celebration of Independence Day on the 15th of September.

We all wish our trips away went on forever, but don't forget the wonderful tales you can tell your friends when it's time to bid "Adiós" to Puerto Quetzal.
