Monte Rico is a beautiful place, just 100 miles south from Guatemala City. the warm beautiful weather, is just perfect to jump on the water and swim out towards the big waves. Specially in March, when the ocean starting to grow bigger waves. I was born and raised in Monte Rico, when I was living there I used to hang out with the Life Guards, and I always help the Rescue Team to saves lifes from the strong current of the ocean. I want to shout out to all my pals in Monte Rico Guatemala; Elber, Nelson, Byron, Jaunito, Estuardo, Alvaro Jaiva, Betio, Rogelio Jr., Arcenio, Tono, and our Swim Team Profesor Paco Colindres. I want to congratulate Eve Anderson for the beautiful pictures of Monte Rico. If you want a vacation to relax, and be out of the city; just go to Monte Rico and you will not be disappointed.
