To the beach at Monterrico, Pacific Coast, Guatemala
Hotel Atelie del Mar at the Pacific Coast of Guatemala

You find Hotel Atelie del Mar in Monte Rico on the Pacific Coast. The hotel is located only about 50 meters from the beach and we do have direct access to the beach. In fact you can most of the year hear and feel the power of the waves breaking into the sandy beach.

How to find us

To come down to Monte Rico we recommend that you take “the autopista” to Puerto Quetzal, look for the road sign to Iztapa where there´s a bridge. From the bridge you drive 25 kilometers and at the end of the road you enter at the main street of Monte Rico, turn directly to the right and take the main street to the end, and there take the last sandy street to the right, go on for about four blocks where you´ll find our hotel also on the right side of the street.

Another possibility is to take the road to Taxisco, Avellana but then you will need a “ferry” for the last part (with car 30 minutes on the ferry plus maybe waiting time). Reaching Monterrico just follow the instructions above.

Lush gardens

Different gardens with a lot of different plants, colorful flowers and fruit trees with different areas of hammocks where you just can rest or read a book in the shadow of the palm trees. The lush gardens also make you feel fresher in the warmth here in Monte Rico. During a period of the year almost all pineapples that we use for meals and beverages are picked from our own garden.
