About Panajachel

Perched on the north shore of Lake Atitlan in the Guatemalan Highlands, Panajachel is a lively market town dotted with street stalls, cafes, pubs and genuine Mayan handicraft shops. Towering volcanoes surround the lake, offering surreal views and nature-filled excursions.

Things to do

For a dose of local life in Panajachel, head straight for Calle Santander, the main street hosting intimate cafes and stalls selling street food, textiles, pottery and clothing. Keep an eye out for authentic handicrafts from the nearby Kaqchikel and Tz'utujil Maya village artisans, including hand-sewn Mayan dresses and dolls.

Stroll the streets of Panajachel’s old town, then stop to admire the colonial-era stone facade of San Francisco Church. Visit in the evening when the castle-like structure, multi-tiered windows and double columns are illuminated. To learn about the lake and volcanic activity, pop into Museo Lacustre Atitlán.

Once housing a hideaway hotel built by a Swedish countess and frequented by famous personalities, such as Ingrid Bergman and Che Guevara, Casa Cakchiquel is now an arts centre housing a gallery of images and postcards of Atitlan in the days of steamboat travel. Drop by La Galeria to see a fascinating collection of Guatemalan paintings and sculptures or catch a film or musical concert.

Just north of town you’ll find Reserva Natural Atitlán, a former coffee plantation dedicated to preserving indigenous species, such as spider monkeys and pisotes. You can also visit a butterfly enclosure and aviary or go zip-lining through canyons and forests.

Getting around

Reaching Panajachel is easy via shuttles, boats and mini-buses. You can rent a car at La Aurora International Airport in Guatemala City, about 140 kilometres away. Micro-buses, tuk-tuks and taxis provide transportation after arrival.
