The Mystery of Lago Atitlan Guatemala

The Mystery of Lago Atitlan Guatemala
The weather in Panajachel, Guatemala on Lago Atitlan is as close to perfect as I know on the planet.

The lake is one of the most beautiful on the planet.

I am always baffled to understand tourist, after 10 years of travel, there is no rhyme or reason to why tourist visit places.

My only instinct says, it is all about the shopping, all the rest is almost irrelevant. Pana has some trinket shopping, some Mayans walking around selling typical clothes of Guatemala. It just does not have enough glitz for the majority of tourist. Very few of the consumer tourists enjoy this place, truly not a good place for the people who only enjoy life when consuming. I think it bores the average tourist to death here in Panajachel, truly drives them away.

What a great place for me.

Every notice how many people go to the beach and do not lie in the sun? They obviously are not there for the sun.

Even the "consumer" tourist will enjoy the view of Lake Atitlan view from Panajachel, don't you think?

They look at it for one day and leave, that is why it is a mystery, it is difficult to say they love it. I have spent about five months of my life here, very few tourist stay longer than two days.

Thanks for visiting my blog. I enjoyed your site. I look forward to seeing the picture and reading more about your future trip to Peru to visit the uncontacted tribe.
