  • Location

    Guatemala is a Beautiful country

    From the Mayan ruins to the ornate cities to the crystal clear lakes, Guatemala really is a sight for sore eyes. With Mexico to the North, Belize to East and El Salvador and Honduras to the South a country deep in history and culture, Guatemala makes the perfect modern holiday destination.

    Where to go and what to do.

    Panajachel

    Known as: the tourist town.

    Panajachel, a.k.a. Pana, is the most popular town for tourists to visit, and if you’re going to visit only one town in Lake Atitlan, it will probably be here. You’ll find a well-developed town with a lot of resources for both locals and expats.

    Panajachel’s main drag is Calle Santander and it’s here that you’ll find the best shopping in Guatemala. There are plenty of tour agencies offering day trips and tours around the entire lake. If I were to live anywhere in Central America, it would be Panajachel — but that doesn’t mean it’s my favorite place in Central America! Pana has the perfect mix of natural beauty, resources, good prices, easy travel connections, and an expat community. All important things in choosing a place to live.
