Most of these shops are near Central Park in Xela. We encourage you to keep an eye open and try these new flavors!!

Why not enjoy the natural wonders of Guatemala’s countryside with this breakfast? The perfectn breakfast for many of us, with fresh picked bananas, strawberries and apples topped with granola and 100% pure honey. Sometimes I prefer a little more meat to start the day. How do you like your breakfast?
