Lago de Atitlán Transportation: 18 reviews and 15 photos
There are lots of boats going to the villages around the lake . There are frequent four hour ferries going to Santiago from Panajachel and private water taxies making regukar trips to the other towns and villages around the lake. Prices are pretty low , less than 15 quetzales.
You don't need reservations . just go the the lakefront dock.
Its a good idea to travel very light , probably no taxis to pick you up at the other side.
There are taxis in Panajachel . They are the three wheeled variety . The whole toen is pretty small so we went by foot but we did see them around.
Type: Car/Motor Home
We took a shuttle from the airport . We had our hotel arrange it and there was someone waiting for us when we arrived . It cost $50.00 for the two of us. ( a little more since it was prearranged)
When we left we took a shuttle to Guatemala city . It took 4.5 hours via Antigua where we picked up more people. It can take longer depending ob traffic. Cost $22.00 each .
It is easy to arrange transportation in Panajachel.
The shuttle was a mini bus that held about 7 people. Quite comfortable and safe.
IN San Pedro as in many of the other highland towns the horse is still used to get around.
