LAKE ATITLAN, GUATEMALA

Lake Atitlan is one of Guatemala's most popular tourist destinations, and for good reason! It's gorgeous!
Megan went there a few years back, and alas, it was my turn. Next time we'll be sure to tote Lisa along too. It's a gorgeous place with stunning views!

Destination: Lake Atitlan, Guatemala / Location: Panajachel, Solala

When we got to Panajachel we decided to take the friendly boat across the lake to San Pedro, where we could ride horses and explore the surrounding areas a bit more. It was beautiful and we were surrounded by gorgeous coffee plantations. We went with the first company we saw off the dock, which is weird for me as I usually like to "shop around," but it ended up working out just fine.

Destination: San Pedro, Guatemala / Transportation: Boat $3  / Horse Trek: $8.50 

 As mentioned earlier, this girl likes to bargain. The original starting prices for the horseback ride were somewhat ridiculous - and after some bargaining and drawn out discussion we negotiated our way to under $10 each for a 2 hour horse ride with one of the nicest tour guides around, Pedro. Guatemala is a beautiful country, and in comparison to the rest of Central America is more mountainous in geography. You get a little bit of that tropical vibe as well as those mountain views you gawk at in travel books. It really is a beautiful place - if you head out to Guatemala, don't miss out on Lago Atitlan.
