Sailing Bailando

Lake Atitlan – San Juan

February 2013

This little town on the western end of the lake is known for it’s residents’ obsession for cleanliness. It’s true; the town center is broom-swept, tidy and colorful. Many sources recommend that we go visit, so we decide to get on a lancha and check it out. The highlight is lunch at a Swiss garden restaurant where we dine al fresco on a spectacular cheese plate. Whereas the town is pretty and quaint, it’s not our cup of tea; it’s essentially a tourist trap. So we take the drastic decision of staying only for the day.
