La Begona

Enchanted, private sixteen acre estate in Guatemala. La Begona, in the Mayan culture, means huge dense rain forest and there are more than 5,000 trees, many as old as 250 years. Ninety percent of these trees produce a wide variety of native fruits: 600 mangos, 50 avocados, 2,000 mameyes, 1,000 nisperos and many more. The five bedroom, four bathroom mansion with lots of windows was built in 2004.

Just five minutes away is the second richest economy town in the country with over a million people. There are theaters, a shopping mall and restaurants. This is primarily an agricultural area.
