Guatemala Local Customs: 50 reviews and 48 photos


In the morning we went to the lakeside for the boat tickets, we saw a lot of people close to the landing stages. At a closer look we saw what was going on. Some people got baptised in the lake going under water for a while.

From a small distance at the lake side people were watching the ceremony and were praying.
