From Panajachel we visited Santiago Atitlan at the south shore of Lago Atitlan. Santiago Atitlan has a very scenic location at a lagoon between two vulcanoes Toliman and San Pedro.
We walked to the Central Plaza with the massive white church. At the central square we saw a banner with the text 'Pueblo & ejercito por la paz. No al comunismo, si a la democracia'. At the corners of the square we saw restless soldiers with the 'finger at the trigger' staring to the roads leading to the mountains.
Along the streets between the centre of the town and the docks were several shops and streetstalls.
Directions: Southshore of Lago Atitlan.
