Local Sights and Sounds




I have been settling into life here in Northern Guatemala since the middle of September. I have begun work establishing the air ambulance program, but much of my time so far has been revolving around figuring out my new world here. I live in San Benito, Peten, Guatemala. The three cities of San Benito, Santa Elena, and the island tourist town of Flores, all run into one another to form essentially one city. They are located on the south side of a large lake in the middle of the Peten department (state). The population of the three cities combined is approximately 30,000. Take a look at some of the sights and sounds around this area.
