I was thrilled when I opened this site randomly off of Google and found my friend, Danilo, had written about me and my decision to stay in Monterrico. I will comment that I believe there is a bug that you catch once in Monterrico that causes you to fall in love with the place and never leave (or have extreme difficulty leaving). Many travelers have contracted this bug as can been seen by the number of extranjeros living permantly in Monterrico. For example, Henry (Kiki) at the Animal Desconocido, Briga at the Pelicano, Sid (Felipe) at Johnny's Place and many more. Although Monterrico is beautiful, it is the tranquilo atmostphere that is really attractive. There is no real division between foreign and local. Locals and Foreigners visit the same bars and resturants and often form great friendships, as I have. I can not stress enough how worth it it is to visit Monterrico while traveling Guatemala, but be careful, you might catch the bug and stay forever, which honestly is not a bad option. Thank you so much to Danilo for making me go to Monterrico, Guatemala.
