The past few days Daniel and I stayed in the small beachside town of Montericco here in Guatemala. Montericco has a volcanic sand beach and the town consists of one paved road, a few dirt roads, a boardwalk, and, you guessed it, the beach. This place is so small, it’s not even on Google Maps! It may not sound like much, but we found it to be our own little paradise. As I’m sure you can imagine, there isn’t a lot to do in this sleepy beachside town so the 4 o’clock happy hour at our hostel was usually a welcome treat while the earlier parts of the day were spent swimming, playing frisbee and water polo (the aussies at the hostel arranged this one), soaking up the sun, or exploring the town and snapping a few shots like these. Here are a few of my favorite photos from the past few days.
The town and beach was full of stray dogs running around but this one lived at our hostel and was named Luna. She didn’t quite understand the concept of fetch but who can hold something against a face like that?
