Oceanfront getaway San Miguel del Mar
El Gariton, Guatemala Bed & Breakfasts
San Miguel del Mar is located on the southern Pacific coast of Guatemala, known to some as the Guatemalan riviera. We are on the rural coast between the internationally known, mangrove filled ecological park, El canal de Chiquimulilla to the north and the Pacific Ocean with the best sailfishing in the world, right in front of us.
San Miguel del Mar is a private home to hosts Guillermo and Peter offering four oceanfront suites, two rooftop lofts, and two smaller rooms for guests who cherish privacy, serenity and service in a relaxed native way. The three acre property has the main private residence, two twin buildings that have four rooms each, beachfront cabanas, outdoor showers, a swimming pool, lily pond and gardens. There are two rooftop lofts where your 360' views of the coastline and volcanoes are just spectacular!
A covered patio greets you in each suite before walking into a living room, a separate open bedroom area with king sized bed, and spacious bathroom. The suites, which are designed for two people, have security boxes and mini refridgerators with honor bars, towels, linens, bathrobes and of course, ocean views even from your bed.
This is heaven, here on the coast, and there are no phones, no t.v.īs and no air conditioning, but we do play music in the living areas and all the rooms have ceiling fans. Itīs the best place to let go, disconnect and get away from it all. We supply all the meals and all the meals are included in the cost of your stay. Guillermo and Peter personally do all the cooking and the meals are served with care and attention. We are happy to accommodate any special diets you may have according to freshness and availability.

We have a full bar and we always ask if there is something special we can provide for you so your stay will be more comfortable.

We have a great massage therapist who works out your troubles if you give her enough notice!
We are two hours from Guatemala City on the Pacific coast between Puerto Quetzal and Monterrico.
