  • Beautiful village perched on the shores of Lake Atitlan still marginally touched by tourism (at least when we were there we were the only ones). If you are staying in a hotel by the Lake is very convenient to go there by boat while wandering through the streets you will encounter many women with colorful traditional costumes mostly devoted to crafts and also near where the boats dock you can see while doing the laundry. Relaxing visit and recommended.

  • Village perched on a mountain slope, still authentic, not tainted by "modernity". The population lives a little agriculture and handicrafts. Women's cooperatives that are dedicated to weaving again with sash belt. There is a pottery workshop, with handmade products, baking oven, not very kind.

Where to stay in Guatemala City

For easy access to the historical highlights of Guatemala City, many travelers choose to stay in the old, central district of Zona 1. While plenty of budget hostels and hotels in this area offer decent rooms, some visitors refrain from this part of the city due to its unfortunate reputation for theft and gun crime, especially at night. You'll find safer areas farther south--in Zona 9 and 10--where you can choose from a much wider selection of high-end hotels, while also enjoying proximity to the airport, the metro, and Guatemala City's best nightlife.
