Maybe one day we'll return with a different purpose.
Depending on who you ask, San Marcos is either a sleepy town with nothing much to do or it's a peaceful spot for a retreat where you can experiment with alternative therapies. On our approach across the lake in a tiny boat we could see people performing yoga positions and others meditating on outcrops facing the water. To them and the hippies who call this village home, it's a shangri la. To us day-trippers from San Pedro, it was beautiful yet rather sleepy town. It was fun winding our way through the maze in anticipation of what lay around each corner.
