Panajachel Overview

Panajachel offers the visitors a magnificent view, not only because of the 3 volcanoes that sorround it, but also by its lake Atitlan, the one mention by brittish writer/novelist Aldous Huxley "As the most beautiful Lake in the world".

The local view at night is marvelous. If your outside, u can see the 3 peaks of the enormous volcanoes (Atitlan, San Pedro and Toliman), and far side the lake on the south, u will see a fourth volcano called "cerro de oro" with lots of rich and dangerous history.

Panajachel is sometime dubbed 'gringotenango' because it is firmly placed on the gringo trail (and also on the so-called 'stoner trail') but let this not deter you. It is a great place to unwind and you will find it to be an exciting city, with good restaurants, hotels, night life, spanish schools, parks, car/bike/boat rentals, monuments, markets and museums.
