Half-day trip takes you to the east shores of the lake. Travel by private boat to the villages of San Antonio and Santa Catarina, with time to explore each village. Take time to soak in the geothermal hot springs. Easy walking involved. English-speaking guide. 2-3 hours.
The day begins at your hotel where you depart for the east end of the lake. Just past Panajachel is the village of Santa Catarina. It is a small village that is easy to explore in less than one hour. There are several womans weaving cooperatives where you can see the beautiful textiles being made into table coverings, clothing, and bed covers. The colors used on this side of the lake are bright vibrant blues, purples, and reds, woven into elaborate and beautiful designs.
There are no entrance fees at the cooperatives. Your gift purchases or donations are how these centers function.
San Antonio is also home to a particular type of ceramic design and you may tour the factory and store if you wish. The streets are quite steep here and the walking is a bit more strenuous.
Our last stop is the geothermal hot springs located on the shore of the lake. There are two hot springs to visit; one that is used by the local indigenous for cleaning and washing, the second is more private and accessible only by boat. Take time to swim and enjoy the hot water before we return to the hotel.
$12 / 100Q per person, $50 / 400Q if you wish to book the trip by yourselves, up to 6 people. Meals & refreshments not included.
You will be met at your hotel by our boat driver and enjoy a short transfer to the Cerro de Oro area, where we disembark and start our adventure in the village of Cerro de Oro. Here we start our hike passing through this charming local village. A one-hour climb brings us to the top and will give us spectacular views over the area. After a short walk down we return to the boat for the return ride.
