Fronteres, Rio Dulce, Guatemala

Here are some pictures of our walk to the town of Fronteres from Tortugal Marina.  We usually take this walk early on Saturday morning when the fresh produce comes.  It is the only day to get mushrooms from one of the tiendas, and you have to get there early.

You can see how early it is coming into town, the streets are vacant and the stores are closed.

This is a view of Tienda Reed's from the bridge.  We do a lot of business at this store.

Coming back over the bridge.

A view of Shell Bay, atop the bridge.

Hotel Backpackers, run by Casa Guatemala, the orphanage on the river.  

Returning to Fronteres, over the bridge.  It is a little later and the traffic is already picking up!

Mike passing one of the many vegetable vendors on the main street.

One of my favorite things to get in town are the fresh made corn tortillas.  There are many vendors selling them as they are a staple for every meal in Guatemala.  They are delicious!

There is a row of street food vendors selling everything from fish to boiled eggs.  We like the chuchitos, which are actually what we call tamales.

Chuchito's and egg for breakfast, yumm!  Mike's is chicken and mine is chipilin.

Cheers Kim and Mike
