Puerto Quetzal

Leaving San José and following the coast in either direction brings you to the beach resorts of Guatemala’s wealthy elite, who have established their own enclaves, with holiday homes built in a pale imitation of Miami. Just east of San José, there’s a container port and a marina at PUERTO QUETZAL with good facilities for yachts. It’s also one of the main bases for sport-fishing excursions in Guatemala, though there are no hotels, just a restaurant and dozens of berths.
