From Antigua, I took a shuttle to Lago de Atitlán or Lake Atitlan. It’s a beautiful body of water with a number of lakeside communities or towns. I visited three of the communities by boat; San Jose, San Pedro and Santiago. San Jose was the most interesting for me based on the photographic subjects. Below, you’ll find several snapshots of town life in San Jose: a woman transporting goods, a small mural on a home and also a carnival like setting at a school. Santiago is famously known for its church.
Pictured right below is a view of the lake from Panajachel, the town where the shuttle dropped us off.
