There are several towns in the Atitlan area. There are many hotels, cafes, shops, entertainment centers in the town of Panahachel in the northeast of the lake. San Pedro la Laguna on the west coast, is a town where it is quite comfortable to live in. And San Marcos la Laguna, located a little to the north, is the most peaceful town.
Fishermen in rustic crafts ply the lake's aquamarine surface, while indigenous women in multicolored outfits do their washing by the banks where trees burst into bloom. Fertile hills dot the landscape, and over everything loom the volcanoes, permeating the entire area with a mysterious beauty. It never looks the same twice. No wonder many outsiders have fallen in love with the place and made their homes here.
