Black volcanic sand, mangroves and tropical heat - Monterrico is a well known weekend destination for Guatemalans. I stayed in this village for one week taking Spanish classes at the language school and living with a local family. Everyone there is friendly and welcoming. If you really want to learn Spanish and immerse yourself in the language and culture, go to Monterrico and not Antigua or San Pedro.
