Panajachel Coconut Vendor, El Centro
The City Center of Panajachel, Guatemala
(“El Centro”) is the intesection of Calle Principal, and Calle (or Avenida) Santander. Most of the tourist-oriented businesses and hotels are located on Santander, which extends from the City Center to Lake Atitlan.
The intersection is a hub of activity day and night, crowded with locals, tourists, and street vendors like this coconut merchant. Behind him is a large pharmacy, or “farmacia”, the preferred place to go for minor injuries and illnesses.
