Smack in the middle of the Montague Valley is Zacapa, a dry and dusty town trapped in the blistering sun and searing heat of the Sierra de las Minas; the average temperature is 38°C (92°F) and the climate is reflected in the fiery personality of the inhabitants. There isn’t much to grab your attention here, even the world-famous rum of the same name is not made in town (distillation requires cooler temperatures), but you could break your journey and refresh at one of the many restaurants on 4a Calle. The bus station is on the road in, left after the big bridge; buses from Guatemala City to Chiquimula stop here or you can catch a mini bus from local towns. The roads are a bit of a maze but wandering around you should find: several pharmacies, dentists and opticians, an Internet café, Magic Café Sports Bar (Chinese, grilled meats and seafood, Tel: 502-7941-4080) and the Don Jorge sandwich shop on 17a Calle; a pleasant plaza and a nice little café on 16a Avenida and 5a Calle; Pizza Burger Diner on 13a Avenida and 3a Calle; Hotel Wong on 7a Calle, Miramundo Hotel and Restaurant on 17a Avenida and Hotel De Leon on 16a Avenida and 11a calle; several banks with ATMs on 4a Calle; and nearby the town hall and church on 12a Avenida and 3a Calle.
