Almolonga or the Garden of the Americas


Almolonga is known for its vegtable market and when you visit the town you will not be dissapointed. This very interesting quirky town is just 20 minutes from Xela and provides a little break from the City. On Market days the town square is very busy and just brimming with excitement. To get to Almolonga hop a bus on 9th Av at the shell gas station. It cost 2 Q to get there. Great short little trip!

  1. I agree with Mark E! Anyone looking for scalding hot volcanic water would really enjoy los baños de Almolonga.
    Also worth mentioning is that this town does away completely with the idea many people have that indigenous people are poor. Veggies from Almolonga make their way all the way down to Costa Rica, and intermediate stops, too, of course!
