Guatemala’s Thorn Forest

Saturday, March 5th, 2016

Guatemala’s thorn forest covers a small patch of land about 900 square kilometers. Situaded to the East of the country, at about 400 meters above sea level, it is flanked by mountain ranges to the North and South, effectively blocking the Pacific and Atlantic ocean’s humidity and winds; making it a very hot and dry terrain.
The Thorn Forest is home to the Heloderma lizard, a subspecies of the Gila Monster, endemic only to this region and not found anywhere else.

World’s best rum!
I’m not kidding.
I worked in the liquor industry for eight years and I got samples of hundreds (yes hundreds) of rums and no one came close to Zacapa 23 year old. Until! a Zacapa XO, a 25 year old was introduce.
Full of character, don’t spoil it with anything, not even ice! And the best pairing available to us here in Guatemala and NOT YOU in the States is Cuban Cigars. Have a few glasses of Zacapa 23 or XO and a Cuban Cigar and you’ll be in heaven while they last.
