HISTORY

The Pacific Coast is not only well known for its long black-sand beaches and the turtles nesting on its shores from September to January, it also plays an important part in Guatemala’s sugar and coffee industry due to its ports and the sugar farms throughout the region. Sport fishing, amusement parks and a wealth of nature in the mangroves along the coast are further attractions of this area.

 

Sipacate National Reserve

Sipacate Naranjo is one of the best conservated remnants of mangrove forest in Guatemala`s southern coast, and is also one of the region`s most important ecosystems due to it`s productivity and biodiversity. These forests protect the coast from beach destruction due to hurricanes. In the park it is possible to appreciate lagoons and black sand beaches, that cover an area of 20 km long (12.5 miles).

One of the most impressive sites in the area is "La Poza del Nance", for it witnesses the annual arrival of numerous Black Sea Turtles and Olive Ridey Sea Turtles. Sipacate Naranjo is therefore a sea turtle sanctuary and a very fragile ecosystem that needs protection.

The beaches of Sipacate Naranjo area ideal for surfing, in general, they are the best along the Guatemalan Pacific side. Surfboard rental, lodging, and food services are available at really comfortable prices.
