Fresh fish dishes
Monterrico ranches and Puerto Iztapa are huts with thatched roofs, built on the beach of the Pacific coast of Guatemala. They serve very fresh food, mainly fish. The specialty is ceviche, a raw fish (normally snapper), marinated in lemon and what we call inglesia sauce with chopped onions and tomatoes. It comes served with crackers. It is delicious. You can also ask for flounder, snapper, whole fish or fillet. Be careful, the shrimp is usually from the mangrove behind, not from the sea. The ranch also is a small hotel, which is around 50 Quetzales per room, where up to three people can sleep. It is very cheap to spend a few days on the beach.
