Q & A

  • What would you have changed?

    Book your place early-ish in advance. For priceworthy options I recommend the hostels La Fe, Casa Madera, Awachoch or Hostal del Lago.

  • How was the food?

    La Paz, Samsara's Garden, Il Giardino

  • What tips would you give a friend?

    Come with an open mind and no itinerary and let yourself be taken by the flow of the town. Everything is very spontaneous.

  • Packing tips?

    Nothing special.

  • Transportation Tips?

    Arrive to the lake to Panajachel. You can use chicken buses. From there take a boat to San Marcos La Laguna which should not cost more than 25Q.

  • Booking details?

    Many places are not on common booking sites on the internet. The best is to book a few nights via a booking site and then once you arrived checking out other places.
