If you are happy with the services provided by your local guides a tip - though not compulsory - is appropriate. While it may not be customary to you, it is of great significance to the people who will take care of you during your travels, inspires excellent service, and is an entrenched feature of the tourism industry across many Intrepid Urban Adventures destinations. Please consider this when budgeting for your extra expenses on this tour.
Start your Panajachel tour by meeting your local guide in the town centre before being whisked away to Mirador Mendez, a spectacular viewpoint. After taking in the magnificent views, you’ll set out on an easy, enjoyable two hour hike to reach the Santa Catarina Mayan community, where you’ll experience the authentic local culture of the Mayans.
From charming Santa Catarina, you’ll head out onto the lake for a gorgeous Atitlan kayaking trip back to Panajachel Beach. Kayaking on Lake Atitlan is a special experience, with a beautiful natural backdrop and relaxing setting, you’ll arrive back in Panajachel invigorated, yet calm and relaxed.
Once back in town, your Panajachel kayak tour will end, and our guide is happy to make recommendations for a great local lunch in town.
