Xocomil is a big water park, the biggest of Guatemala. It is part of IRTRA, and organization created by big corporations in the country for the recreations of all workers. They own a compound of theme parks and water parks distributed all over the country but this one along with its neighbor, Xetulul theme park, are by far the best.

Guatemala has surprised me a lot. It is so much more than I thought it would be, which brings me to my story:

My family an I were visiting a theme park in Guatemala that we love. It is called Xetulul and can be found in the Retalhuleu Department of Guatemala. The place is fantastic and we love visiting it, because of it’s great rides for all ages. Next to it is its sister, Xocomil Water Park. Since I’m not crazy about pools we had never visited it but this time we gave it a shot.


The place is amazing! That’s all there is to say. It has tons of pools for kids with waterslides and places where they can have some fun without adults having to run after them all the time. There are also huge waterslides for adults that looked pretty scary but the truth is that the turned out to be a lot of fun.

There are also some other interesting and fun rides for the whole family such as a rafting waterslide, a pool with artificial waves and artificial rivers where you can hop on a canoe and paddle for a while or just relax while you float. Since we wanted to see both parks we decided to spend a night in the area and found out that there are 4 hotels that belong to the parks. As usual we decided to see all four of them before I decided to stay in one. Finally we decided to stay in the one called Palajunoj which is the newest one and for me, the best.


Let me tell you what the hotel is like: It is inspired in rain forests all over the world that’s why it has 5 buildings each with a different theme, they are: Polynesian, Indonesian, Thai, African and Mayan. It also has beautiful gardens with turkeys running around freely. But my favorite part of this hotel was the restaurant it serves delicious Polynesian food in a beautiful and relaxed ambience.
