Panajachel Stories and Tips

local handicrafts market

There's one main road in Pana that leads to the lake, and all along it are shops and stalls where you can buy typical Guatemalan handicrafts and other souvenirs. A lot of this stuff is cheaper in Chichicastenango, though decent deals can be had here. Especially look for weaving and embroidery in the local style - a lot of blues and greens in honor of Lake Atitlan - and jewelry made and sold by the town's resident bohemians.
