The schedule of my visit to Lake Atitlán could be the following:
Day 1: arrive in the afternoon, first night on the lake.
Day 2: boat tour (3 or 4 villages).
Day 3: hiking somewhere (where?). Third and last night on the lake.
Day 4: Indian nose at sunrise, then some rest, then transfer to Antigua.
Question 1: where to stay?
The hotel/B&B I like more are in San Pedro, Jaibalito, Santa Cruz.
Perhaps San Marco. Also in Pana there are interesting places, but I don't know if I want to stay 3 nights in Pana.
In order to make my choice, I would know:
Is it possible doing the boat tour from any little village or only from the biggest ones?
Is it possible doing the Indian Nose hiking only from San Pedro or it is easy to organize even sleeping elsewhere?
Is it possible sleeping in Santa Cruz, which is quite far from San Pedro? Or even in Jaibalito, which is also far and also a minor village with presumably less transportation?
Thank you very much
