Lancha Across Atitlán
Taking the lancha across Lago de Atitlán from San Pedro to San Marcos la Laguna. The ever present backdrop of the lake’s volcanoes makes any boat trip across it’s waters pure pleasure. And really, that’s the very best way to skip from village to village on Atitlán – lanchas run during daylight hours connecting all 17 of those Mayan villages. The young man up top watches for pickups and helps to unload goods bound for the Highland markets.
