Visiting the Village of Santa Cruz at Lake Atitlan, Guatemala


The Village of Santa Cruz at Lake Atitlan, Guatemala is quiet and has much less tourism than the other villages nestled along the shore of Lake Atitlan in Guatemala.Β  There are a few restaurants near the boat dock and if you walk up a rather steep hill into town, you’ll get a feel for the villagers’ daily life.

Many Guatemalans prefer not to have their photo taken, so I either ask or sneak one in.Β  This pretty girl agreed to have her photo taken.

The view once you’ve almost reached the top is fabulous!

As soon as we walked into the main square, we were excited to see a game of soccer being played by the local children!

These two cuties wanted me to take their photo again and again, in a variety of “funny” poses.

The children were so loving and flocked around us for hugs and photos!

Lake Atitlan and its volcanoes are just so beautiful, they continually took my breath away!

Even the simple fishing boats are pretty…

Picture perfect day on the lake with puffy white clouds!

  1. Hey, this are some really amazing pictures! I love the picture of the kids playing soccer and those four boys standing against the wall looking so cool and chill in their FC Barcelona jerseys. Great stuff! And that last picture is so beautiful.

  2. Cool. I love people photos but I must say that first photo is like an opening to something. May I use that with your name on it? It would be only for a blog post or something. It has this symmetry that is beautiful. Have fun. you sure do travel! πŸ™‚
