Ensure that you visit the Museo de Arqueología y Etnología to reflect and fully embrace the local culture.
Make tracks to Museum of Archeology and Ethnology and discover what there is to see and do. After that, grab lunch and continue onwards to San Antonio de Padua Church.
Travel 5 kilometres to the northeast and you'll come across San Sebastian. It's home to some outstanding sights, such as Parque Acuático Xocomil and Parque de Diversiones Xetulul.
Roughly 40 kilometres to the northeast, Quetzaltenango is a destination chock-full with things to do. Quetzaltenango Cathedral, Quetzaltenango Central Park and the Los Altos Railroad Museum are all pretty close. Keep in mind, Trama Textiles and La Democracia Market are also worthwhile.
'There is no love sincerer than the love of food,' George Bernard Shaw once wrote, but add travel to the mix and it's a marriage made in heaven. You're invited to indulge in your two loves by eating and drinking your way around Retalhuleu.
Once you stop and leaf through a restaurant or café menu, you'll notice that beans (frijoles) and chicken are two ingredients commonly used in the local cuisine.
While Retalhuleu is home to no short supply of scrumptious foods, don't leave without tasting chiles rellenos (bell peppers stuffed with meat and vegetables) and gallo en chicha (chicken stew). Considered iconic local dishes, you'll have to put them on your must-eat list if you really want to get a taste of this destination.
'Stressed' spelled backwards is 'desserts', and we don't think that's a coincidence. There's no tastier way to let your problems melt away than with coconut flan, a treat often found on dinner tables here.
Good news, beer enthusiasts. You'll find some flavoursome, bubbly brews to swig here. Chill out with a glass of Victoria in a comfy bar and be sure to text everyone back home, 'Wish you were beer'.
Raise a glass of a local speciality such as Château DeFay White Merlot or Château DeFay Cabernet Sauvignon/Merlot. Sommelier or not, there's nothing else like a nice drop.
Fortunately Retalhuleu isn't planning on moving anywhere, so this "Adiós" needn't be your last!
