This church is a splendid example of colonial architecture as the Mayan and Latino influence is mixed throughout both the interior and exterior of the building.

Then, continue to the town of Panajachel, which sits on Lake Atitlan. Visit Santander Street and enjoy a spectacular view of Lake Atitlan, considered one of the most beautiful lakes in the world.

The tour was well organised and our guide very friendly and competent. The only thing is i wish we'd spent more time at the lake, where we only had a 20 minutes walk vs. around 3 hours in Chichicastenango.
If you want to spend time at the lake, see the villages and enjoy spending a bit of time on the water, you should NOT take this tour. The tour guide was nice and the ride was clean and safe. However, we only spent about 30 minutes in Panajachel, which was very disappointing. We did not see anything else at the lake. The lake portion of the tour was basically walking to see the lake and that was it. We spent way more time at the Chicicastenango market.
