After leaving Antigua we headed Southwest to Lake Atitlan, we decided to only spend one night, but could have spent much more time there exploring all of the villages surrounding the lake.
We chartered a private lancha this morning to site see and ultimately end up at breakfast on the other side of the lake. Lake Atitlan is a 50 square mile lake flanked by 3 Volcanoes and other mountains. The depth of the crystal blue waters is around 1200 feet. It was a bit brisk at 7:30 in the morning, but the views were so worth it!
Our lancha captain came to our campsite to pick us up.
The tuk tuk ride was the icing on the cake. Tuk tuk’s are 3 wheeled motorcycles made into taxi’s! We took this to get across the village to the restaurant from the lancha.
We stayed outside of the town of Panajachel, where we were able to camp across the street from the hotel in a wide open field. There were 3 other families camping, but it was very peaceful and the kids had a play set right next to there car! Unfortunately there was extreme winds that came over the mountain & into the valley that night. I thought the tent was going to fly off the Rover with us in it!
