Monterrico, Guatemala is situated on the Pacific coast of Guatemala. Known for its volcanic black sand beaches and annual influx of sea turtles. The town is growing popular with foreign tourists largely because of the local sea turtle conservation efforts as well as the laid-back atmosphere of the area.

Sea turtle

A few turtle conservation organizations operate in the Monterrico area because the long stretch of beach serves as a breeding ground for 4 species of sea turtles. Many locals who hunt for sea turtle eggs during the August-November season donate a percentage of their catch to the "tortugarios" (sea turtle hatcheries).
