The colorful squares you see are in the cemetary
We tour Santa Maria de la Concepcion, a small town near Panajachel. Duncan, a local tour guide, says he’s the only one giving tours to Concepcion. In his opinion, the town is a little-known gem.
It’s a tranquil little hamlet with a 400 year old church. The bell continues to peal.
There are very few visitors to the sleepy little town.
Another centuries old building being put to good use
On the way back, we stop in Solala and visit the museo. It was dedicated maybe a year or two ago by the queen of Spain!
The building was originally shorter
In another life, it was a government building.
Back on the streets of Panajachel, we talk to Frank. He’s lived here 20 years. Some of his tips if you are staying in Pana:
*Don’t use the local BAC bank. If there’s an issue at their ATM and it keeps your money, the bank will NOT give you your money back.
*Primavera is the best hotel in town.
*El Bistro has the best steaks.
