Wildlife Areas · Ruins · Gardens
A little town with a thriving tourism industry, Panajachel sits on the northern shore of scenic Atitlan Lake, one of Guatemala's major vacation destinations. Hippies discovered this picturesque area back in the 1960s, when the town offered few amenities but plenty of natural charm. Today, Panajachel boasts many hotels, bars, restaurants, and shops, which make the town a pleasant base for day trips into the surrounding area. A vacation in Panajachel typically involves kayaking, scuba diving, hiking, biking, and sailing on the lake, which reflects the misty peaks of three majestic volcanoes. Put Panajachel at the heart of your travel plans by using our Guatemala online tour itinerary planner.
