puerto de iztapa
this is my family
I went back to Iztapa ( MY HOME TOWN, PLACE OF BIRTH ) for the first time in 20 years.
Iztapa still the same town I left back in 1989. some new faces, but the same town.
I had fun, and I would recommend you visit this small town in the Pacific coast of Guatemala.
Iztapa is a poor town, well all Guatemala is ppor, so dont expect to find a 5 star hotel in Iztapa, but the people in Guatemala is warm, friendly, and welcoming to outsiders ( tourist ) So please visit Iztapa, and see for yourself.
Please understand & dont expect high end facilities, becasue you will not find them.
If you dont mind roughing it then This is the place for you.
Try a trek in the Maria Linda River, try the black sand beaches of Iztapa or Monte Rico.
You might also want to try some salt water fishing, and even try our sea food. ( red snapper aka pargo )
Try river crabs, blue crabs ( salt water crabs ) shrimp, lobster, red snaper, lisas, robalos, and caldo de pescado.
There is this restaurant near the crossing brdge near Puerto
