Your tour begin meeting in the Porta Lago Hotel.
Then we will take a public boat to cross Lake Atitlan and visit Santiago Atitlan, where you’ll learn of the local Saint "Maximon". Enjoy the vibrant colors and local flavor of this village.
Santiago is the most popular lakeside settlement outside Panajachel, the largest of the lake communities, with a strong indigenous identity, and many atitecos (as its people are known) cling to a traditional Tz’utujil Mayan lifestyle. Women weave and wear huipiles (tunics) embroidered with brilliantly colored birds and flowers, and the cofradías town’s maintain the ceremonies and rituals of tradition, the syncretic traditions and practices of Mayan Catholicism.
There’s a large art and crafts scene here as well. Boatbuilding is a local industry, and rows of rough-hewn cayucos (dugout canoes) are lined up along the shore.
We will take a public boat to return back to Panajachel. End of the tour.
