Now if you like more the beach and the tropical temparetures you will be heading toward Monterrico and the black sand volcanic beaches of Guatemala. This area is a short drive from Guatemala city and it is not the most look after destination for retirees because until then it has been pretty much underdeveloped. But nowadays you can find great appartment in residencial compound at a bargain price (if you compare to what you can buy souther like Costa Rica - Panama). I like particularly this new project which is a mix of Villas and Small appartment towers offering you all the commodity of a private house without the maintenance and to worry about anything. Plus the compound is mostly empty during the week making it an ideal destination for the one looking to enjoy the beach,the ocean. Still you are an hour drive to Antigua or Guatemala City as new toll high way is linking the cost to the highland.
Little know fact, the Guatemalan Pacific Coast offers one of the best world destination for fly fishing.
And now the final destination for relocating in Guatemala is Rio Dulce... the tropical destination by excellence. If you are a sailor you will love it. You can park your boat in one of the numerous Marinas at a competitive rate.. It is hard to find long term rental and to buy is as well expensive. But if you want to live further from civilization you can find hidden gem. Now be ready to endure more mosquitos then any other part of Guatemala, long rainy days when it is rainy season. From Rio Dulce easy to visit the Verapaces the North East part of Guatemala with destination like Semuc Champey, Candelarias Grottes as well the Belize Keys which are hours boat drive from Fronteras.
Now for sure Guatemala is much safier, easier to travel with the new network of highways. Don' t hesitate to consul the Guatemalan Tourist web site for information.
