There are also many lakeside developments, of which Panajachel is one. By lakeside I mean Lago De Atitlan, an amazing lake surrounded by volcanoes. Pana is really the most built-up lakeside settlement. I had toyed with the idea of booking a hotel in a smaller peaceful lakeside settlement in San Juan Laguna (8 miles from Pana) but decided against it even though the price was great with excellent reviews. The only problem was it was too far off the beaten path. That would be a great place to go if I wanted to be alone, which I do not. I need to be in the company of others since I am going alone anyway. Another dilemma is I still cannot decide if I want to go into Belize. I won’t be that far away, but the logistics of getting there is daunting. I would either have to drive, take a bus, or plane. Either way, it will be a long haul, which might necessitate me having to rearrange my flight plans; that would be expensive too. Then I keep seeing ads on the Internet about incentives in Belize, but it is more costly to live there than Guatemala. One thing I do know is I have to accept that I do not have complete control of this trip. I can do my best to make plans but there is an element of “winging it” that fills me with uncertainty and a little dread. I like things in my life to be concrete but this trip is more like walking on quicksand. I have to just trust in God that things will fall into place at the right time. Adios for now.
