نصائح بخصوص المدينة

لا يفوتك

Amazing sunsets

Panajachel and Santa Catarina have the best views of sunsets from the lake. You can watch it while walking along the beach, swimming on the lake or at one one the cafés at the shore of the lake.
العادات والثقافة

Avoid to take photos without consent.

Even though people wear coloful clothes and tend to smile a lot, they can be shy or protective of their culture and don't like to have their pictures taken. Always ask for permission before taking a photo.
طرق التوفير

Best prices are over Santander Street!

You can get great prices on local and exported goods at Calle Santander. You'll find handmade jewerly and handcrafts. Beautiful textiles, clothing, coffee, chocolate, etc. You'll also find unique coffee shops and restaurants throughout this street. Vendors usually ask for a higher price so you both can bargain. They usually lower the price. Just keep in mind that indigenous communities have been systematically marginalized and usually live in poverty. So even if you know you could bargain for a lower price, please remember that you can help someone make a good sale that day.
ما يجب حزمه

Comfortable clothes, layers.

Weather here is varied. In the mornings and evenings you'll find cool weather, but it's always hot at noon. Layers of clothing is the best strategy. Comfortable shoes is a must because you'll be walking a lot around town.
