Off to the Lake!
Guatemala Trip Journal
We arrive at Santiago de Atitlan where we were met by tuk-tuks (the 3-wheeled small taxis) offering to give us a ride to the hotel. We decided to walk so we could see the town. On the walk we bought some grilled plantains on the street – One of my favorite things to eat!
Joe and I checked into our bungalow at the Posada de Santiago. It was great! We had a fireplace, and it the whole bungalow was made mostly of stone from the area. There was even a separate faucet in the bathroom that supplied purified water! (We never saw that anywhere else on our travels.) Since canoe rentals were included in our stay, Joe and I hurried to take one out of the lake – Even though it was raining!
Dinner at the Posada was excellent, and we ate there both nights! They have a lovely dining area, and had live music (Cuban music) on Saturday night. It was a great treat!
