I wish I could say the two lighthouses are spectacular sight to see, but I can't. They are two towers with four concret walls, with a stairwell running up the interior. They mark the border of Mexico and Guatemala. The picture was taken from taller of the two. And the blue truck in the photo provided the ride back to the town I was staying in.

Hi Anton, this is Russ Rowlett, the webmaster of The Lighthouse Directory, hosted by the University of North Carolina. You have here the first photo of a Guatemalan lighthouse I've seen. I'd like to use this photo to illustrate a new page for Guatemala on my site, at [guatemala] ( My site is completely educational and noncommercial, so I hope you'll find this a fair use. If not, please let me know. ( Thanks!

Russ thanks for visiting. It is fine with me. To help you, I just posted a picture of the lighthouse I was on to take this picture.
