Most visitors to Lake Atitlan, Guatemala arrive in Panajachel, but the overcrowded, touristy town does not capture the true essence of the lake. To better appreciate its beauty, take a public boat to San Marcos ($3.50) enjoying the view of the volcanoes which surround Atitlan.
Take a leisurely, traditional Guatemalan breakfast in the garden of Restaurant Fe ($5) before a digestive walk to the famous diving platform just outside town. From here you can get up close and personal with the lake by hurling yourself into it, while those that don’t have such a head for heights can sun themselves on the deck.
After frolicking in the lake, walk back to the dock and make the short hop over to San Juan ($1.50) where you can visit cooperatives of local women supporting their families by making and selling handicrafts. Treat yourself to a colorful bag or buy some souvenirs for family and friends ($20).
Now it’s time for another short boat ride to San Pedro ($1.50) with its wide selection of restaurants. Head to Hummus Ya for some Middle Eastern-inspired cuisine ($10), walking around the village for a while before hiring a kayak ($8) to glide around the lake under your own steam.
Once the sun has slipped behind the mountains, it’s time to return to shore for dinner and drinks at Burma POP ($20 food and drinks). Choose from a selection of Burmese dishes, washed down with cold beers or freshly-prepared cocktails, as you consider your options for the night ahead.

We can see it now and remember when it happened to us: Watching as the black car icon loops around and around, seemingly endlessly, and our wait time on the rideshare app continually changes. Long wait times and confused drivers are just a few bothersome issues that can nag at rideshare users. Need a solution? Ditch rideshares altogether in favor of renting a car on your next trip.
