Travel Blogs from Panajachel
We decided to rent a car for the weekend and head to Panajachel instead of going with a shuttle. These are ok on short rides, but can get a little uncomfortable on longer ones.
The drive from Antigua to Panajachel was a very windy mountainous one! The roads were very smooth, however, proof of the past rainy season's devastation was very …
... a gastric tube or IV. The family couldn’t afford to send her to hospital and were waiting for her to pass away with them at home. Collaboratively, with the Mayan families Doctor, we did our best to support the girl and the family. Sadly this is the harsh reality affecting indigenous communities in Guatemala.
Our working weeks flew by and we made the most of our weekends visiting different towns on the lake. Mary and I spent this down time ...
... as an opportunity to practice Spanish. The landscape on the journey there was amazing, rolling hills with so many trees. Guatemala is a stunning country. An hour of the journey was on a dirt track which was so bumpy it would rattle fillings from your teeth! We were in a 4x4 car but we saw other tourists on a budget travelling stood in the back of pickup trucks, goodness knows how they managed to stay standing. Semuc Champey is a number of pools which have been ...

Once we got to the final pool the guide took a few of us down a really dodgy rope ladder behind a ...
Again late to pick us up for our 9 hour bus ride from San Cristobal, Mexico to Panajachel, Guatemala. The 9 hours definitely turned into 11 and 1/2 hours and by the time we reached Panajachel it was absolutely bustling because of the Easter long weekend. Of course we once again weren't very organized and we hadn't booked any thing. The man at the tour company that we caught the bus through helped us look for a place to stay. He rang a dozen places and ...
We stayed at the Reserva Natural Hotel for 2 nights with our 2 children, ages 6 and 3. We stayed busy the whole time and we were so happy to have chosen to stay here instead of at a hotel in town. We only went to town twice to eat. Other than that, we spent our time at the reserva hiking, playing, and adventuring!!! Thank you for a wonderful adventure!
