The Area

El Paredon is a small rural fishing village in Guatemala. The quiet town may have a slower pace to life, however, that will soon change. Currently, the long stretch of black sand beaches welcomes visitors with a few options more on the rustic side, as well as smaller eateries and shops with basics.
