San Pedro

San Pedro Peten GuatemalaSan Pedro is a great little Maya beach village that hasn’t been civilized for too long. Just 25 years ago the locals were hunting Baird’s Tapir on mesa that’s now home to the local futbol field.

Nice little developed beach area with crystal clear blue Maya water is waiting. Not uncommon for the locals to stop by your place in the evenings and offer fresh caught fish – or ask around for Pedro who has the home due East of the beach park.

Be sure and take a walk up to the top of the mesa and a visit to the neighbor Maya village of la Esperanza. Nice bit of agriculture, goats, sheep and the occasional home-based talapia farm.
