About Puerto San José

Rapidly accessed from Guatemala City, Puerto San Jose is Guatemala’s most important seaside resort and as such, is the most surfed beach in the country. Take the boat across the Canal de Chiquimulilla to reach the grubby beach where average, all tide peaks break beside the pier.

Rips, some residential pollution and weekend warriors make this place less appealing. Rip-offs fairly common as well.
