Santo Tomas De Castilla, Guatemala

DSC_5699

The third stop on our Western Caribbean adventure found us in the port town of Santo Tomas De Castilla.  On the edge of Guatemala, it is a fruit port.  The port is still quite busy and not an ideal cruise stop.

We hopped off our large ship and took a small boat around the bay.  The most exciting site was the abandoned ship called “Petromaya.”  The Panamanian ship was left to rot in the bay after drugs were discovered on it.  The insurance company felt it better to just leave it to rust than pay to have it moved.  And I reckon no one else has seen fit to rescue it.
