Travel Blogs from San Marcos La Laguna

Cacao ceremony, San Marcos

A travel blog entry by zendrik


... me at the ferry. It holds about 20 people and is packed with locals, mostly Mayans heading home from work or shopping trips. Two other gringos, from Israel, show us some photos from their trip to a forest backpackers near some waterfalls and pools, and invite us to come party at San Pedro, another town on the lake, the party place. San Marcos, where we are heading, is the healing/yoga/spiritual town. When I visit San Pedro a few days later to buy a sim card ...

Maltiox Lago de Atitlan

... to return to Santa Cruz
was on the other side of town and it was interesting to see the difference in
the two sides of the village. It was like local (traditional) vs backpacker

Nick’s place and jumped on the bumpy ferry as the rains came down on us.

Basic room, shared bathrooms (one on each floor). Nice gardney location with a view of the lake (if the trees were trimmed/maintained the view would be even better). Shared kitchen - but no alcohol, meat, fish allowed. Strictly vegan place! Included a couple of ...

Ain't No Party Like a Gringo Party

A travel blog entry by dinojay2


There is a common refrain among travellers that goes something like, "it's not the place, it’s the people". Which, although only marginally true in most cases, does serve as a tidy little phrase to lead us into a discussion about all the expatriates that live here at the lake. In this entry I won’t get into all the permanent, born-and-raised Guatemalans that also live here and, of course, far outnumber the transplanted foreigners. Because that would ...
