Santa Lucía Cotzumalguapa

Tidy, prosperous Santa Lucía Cotzumalguapa is the town that sugar built. The small city is worth a stop to visit a couple of lesser-known indigenous ruins. Several nearby rivers also put Santa Lucía in the midst of one of the country's best white-water regions. However, you'll have to hook up with a trip in Guatemala City, as none depart from here.
