This is another view of the beach at Playa Flamingo.
A few years ago there was a proposal to build a resort development and pier for cruise ships at Playa Flamingo, as it has one of the few bays suitable for sheltering ships in the area.
There was a delay due to controversy in the letting of the contract for the large infrastructure projects, and then the 2008 recession hit and the plans have been shelved. There is no town at Playa Flamingo suitable for being overrun with cruise ship day passengers.
This week we have photos of the people Guatemala posted on our Viva la Voyage travel photo site.
