It’s all about the lake. The magical, seductive, lake.
The towns have their own appeal, to be sure. At least, that’s what others have said, although we didn’t quite find it ourselves. Panajachel is essentially one long road full of restaurants and peddlers of the usual souvenirs. San Pedro had a cool, relaxed vibe, but almost a little too so for our liking.
I am sure there are other reasons to enjoy this area. But for us, it was all about the lake, and views of the dormant volcanoes nestled up to it.
