Panajachel is located in the southern part of Guatemala on the north-eastern coast of the picturesque alpine Lake Atitlán. The distance from the capital of the country is 150 km. Tourists are attracted by the beauty and magnificent landscapes of the reservoir, as well as the opportunity to ride a boat or speedboat, dive or windsurf. You can also climb the crater of one of the three volcanoes, taste exotic local cuisine, and just have a good rest. The city's main street, Santander, is home to many souvenir shops and stalls. You should definitely go to Santiago Atitlán and see the wooden statue of the Indian deity Maximón, who always smokes a cigarette in his mouth. Also nearby is an ancient temple of St. Santiago and an Indian market. You can also go on a tour of Mayan villages located on the western and southern shores of the lake.
