Welcome to Champerico

It's a modest and slightly scruffy place, but presents an interesting picture of regular Guatemala at play that's a long, corrective way from a trending Instagram post.

Head to the end of the town until you hit the 'boardwalk' at the beach, where there are countless restaurants and tourist shacks. Beware of strong waves and an undertow if you go in the ocean, and stay in the clearly marked central part of the beach: muggings have been known outside this area.
