AtitlanWe cross the lake to San Marcos La Laguna, a village known for wonderfully restorative yoga and meditation retreats. Unless you enjoy hiking, launchas (boats) are the way to reach neighboring communities.

Once you land, some of the villages have tuk-tuks to take you farther inland. Some also have pickups that offer rides in their truck beds. Hop in and hold on tight! It’s all part of an excellent adventure!

Panajachel vendors hope last minute shoppers will come by.

We dine at Guajimbo’s, a Uruguayan restaurant. The food is so good! There’s live music, dogs wandering the tables and shoeshine boys buffing clients’ shoes as they eat.

Guajimbo's Uruguayan restaurant is packed on a weekday!

We stop by another restaurant for dessert and music. Lonnie watches someone from the kitchen walk out and come back with his dessert in hand. It’s like borrowing a cup of sugar from a neighbor!Panajachel3
