Travel Blogs from San Marcos La Laguna


A travel blog entry by elltrev


Set on the shore of what is widely thought to be one of the most beautiful lakes in the world, the village of San Marcos - where I stayed for four nights - is a magnet for hippies. Its practices range from such relative mundanities as meditation and yoga to a number of more esoteric, spiritual concepts: crystal healing or lucid dreaming, for …
