Aguas Amargas

Aguas Amargas or Bitter Waters, was a very important destination for local tourists in Zunil, Quetzaltenango

until Tropical Storm Agatha, May 29, 2010-June 1, 2010, devastated the region. The thermal bath’s infrastructure could not withstand the rains, winds or the overflowing of the rivers and landslides. The thermal water pool was completely destroyed and the only access road was washed out, and the entire complex had to be closed and abandoned. It wasn’t until 2014 that the place was reopened but the community has lacked the funds to restore the infrastructure.
