Puerto Quetzal, Guatemala
Puerto Quetzal Reviews
A small dock, and a short pier Sep 28, 2012
There really isn’t much here, only a small Visitor’s Center and craft market with about three dozen vendors, established for the cruise lines that stop here. San Jose, the closest town is at least a mile away and although some cruise lines call it Antigua that is an hour and a half or more away by bus.
Even so, Puerto Quetzal is the largest Pacific Ocean port in Guatemala. The area’s most important agricultural crops are sugar cane, tobacco, and seafood and cattle are also important here. Close by are three volcanoes, Acatenango, Agua, and Fuego. The last one, Fuego, had a spectacular eruption on September 13, 2012, a short time before our visit to Guatemala.
