Welcome to Panajachel on Lake Atitlan in Guatemala. Panajachel is the most-visited Lake Atitlan village, with a population of a little over 11,000.

Above, the view of Panajachel, Guatemala and Lake Atitlan from La Cueva Maya”, or “The Maya Cave”, is impossibly beautiful. The cave serves as a ceremonial site for those who still practice indigenous religions in the Maya villages uphill from Panajachel. Smoky and filled with the fragrance of incense, the mysterious site can be reached via a short local bus ride from town, and a short scenic hike.
