A wonderful experience exploring art, handicrafts and a community project of organic coffee
The magic of Lake Atitlán is unique!
This is a one day trip to the Lake Atitlán, leaving from Guatemala City or Antigua Guatemala.
This full-day trip will allow us to explore Panajachel where we will take the boat to explore two main villages; San Marcos La Laguna, a small town perfect to walk slow and experience the local life of Kakchiquel Maya people, its culture and traditions.
Next stop, San Juan La Laguna; famous for its art, handicrafts and sustainable community projects. We will visit a local production of organic coffee called "La Voz" "The Voice" in English.
While walking through the streets will lead you to discover the cacao and textile demonstrations that involved natural dye which is a practice that is unique to the Tzutuhil culture in San Juan La Laguna and woven.
