Around Lake Atitlán and Chichicastenango

Lake Atitlan sits at 1500 meters high from sea level and is surrounded by three volcanoes, two of them with around 2ooo meters high. It took all words out of my mouth when I first saw it.

The colorful village of Panajachel is a great place to stay. For coffee aficionados (like me) San Pedro Atitlan, on the other side of the lake, is worth a visit. Coffee beans are roasted on site!

Chichicastenango must be the most visited mountain village of Guatemala, much on account of it’s open air market.

Ancient Maya rituals stay strong amongst the locals.
