For a family visit five of us in Santiago, Atitlan, made an excursion to Tecojate and to the beach there. A hundred kilometers from Santiago to Tecojate by van to visit a relatively desolate beach and a dying pueble (or so it seems). The comodores were open for business. We enjoyed seafood, beer, and sunshine. The place was practically deserted it being March. No tourists (not a foreigner in sight) and only a few Guatemaltecos.
This comodor was open, or so it seemed. But the dog was a deterent, as was his companion, not shown, a rooster.
