Puerto Quetzal: how is the new shopping area right off the ship?

Recommended Posts

I read that there is a new cruise dock floating pontoon where the ships dock with a jade museum, shops, vendors, music, etc. in a pretty setting.


I haven't really seen much information about this. Has anyone been here who could add their views? And how far it is from where the ship docks?

it is very nice, very colorful with lots of vendors selling Guatemalan products from table mates and tablecloths to local paintings. There is an interesting but small jade museum, a couple of places to get something to eat or drink and lots of places to sit. We actually booked a tour through the local tourist board that was right off the boat. that took us on a group tour to Antiqua which was an hour away for $65 per person in a 12 person van. We did have to wait until they got enough people but the tourist lady walked us over the

the Jade Museum
