I have started doing some research for a trip to Guatemala, and I know I want to spend most of it at Lake Atitlan. However, I can't decide on what village I want my home base to be in.
It will be my husband and I going (and possibly a couple friends). We like peace and quiet and being surrounded by nature. We want less people, and more beautiful views and sounds. We are both huge nature and wildlife lovers. I enjoy doing yoga, and he enjoys relaxing and reading books. We both love to hike, swim, kayak, etc. We love making dinners full of fresh fruits and vegetables but also enjoy going out for a nice dinner while on vacation. We want this to be a getaway, but we want to experience some culture too (i.e. We don't like going to resorts where it's just America transported to a different climate).
So you tell me, what village will we get the most out of?
