12/20.- Lake Atitlan, San Pedro la Laguna


San Pedro de la Laguna is the second busiest town in Lake Atitlan. Its atmosphere is more laid back than the one in Panajachel, making of it the prefered destination in Lake Atiltan among foreign backpackers.

You can get to San Pedro by land (from Antigua and Guatemala City), or by boat from Panajachel.

The town has a good offer of accommodation. You do not need to reserve ahead. As soon as you get to San Pedro, you will be greeted by touts and tuk-tuk drivers who will offer you rooms.

San Pedro is also very popular among Spanish students from America and Europe. It is considered the second best option to learn Spanish in Guatemala, after Antigua.
