Panajachel to Santa Cruz La Laguna

We are Panajachel from Antigua in the afternoon, is it easy to catch a water taxi from Pana to Santa Cruz? How long is the boat ride? We are going to stay at the La Iguana Perdida Hotel. thanks!

Just get dropped off at the end of Calle del Embarcadero in Pana and walk down the hill to the dock. There'll be a bunch of boats there. Should be 15-20 Q. They won't leave 'til the boat is full, but the ride itself is maybe 15-20 minutes, if I recall correctly.

Lee will likely see this, so he can provide the most recent info, since he lives there.

It is so close. Probably 15 minutes on the boat will get you to the tourist section lake section of Santa Cruz. The actual Maya village is well above where it will flood from the lake. They are not stupid.

I am glad to see you are choosing Santa Cruz la Laguna of all the villages on Lake Atitlan. It is quite beautiful and everyone who visits has a great experience. I live in the neighborhood, so please stop by and say HI when you are here. Lee & Elaine
