Town below the volcano
San Pedro la Laguna is a small colorful town situated on the slope above the lake. There are now two ports operating the lines Panajechal and Santiago Atitlan. It is absolutely perfect as a basis to the volcano San Pedro and a walk along the lake. In addition, most local guest houses have a balcony with stunning views of the lake and surrounding volcanoes. What else could you wish.
View of lake Atitlán
From higher-lying areas in the town (balcony, roof) is a very nice view of the loneliest north side of the lake with Indian villages situated in places in the slope.
Center of San Pedro
The center of San Pedro is around the picturesque square with a church. Nearby intersect the paths to both ports.
Market in San Pedro
You can certainly enjoy here colorful markets.
Gentlemen in San Pedro
Women walk around the markets and men have time to discuss this and that.
