Surrounded by rich green foliage, Escuintla should be a tropical idyll where people swing languidly in hammocks and concoct pungent meals of readily available exotic fruits and vegetables. In fact, it's a hot, shabby commercial and industrial city that's integral to the Pacific Slope's economy, but not at all important to travelers, except for making bus connections. Banks are located around the plaza. There's an ATM in the Farmacia Herdez, one block uphill from the bus terminal.
