We took a three hour bus to Panajachel, which is on the side of Lake Atitlan. Then we got a boat to Santiago de Atitlan and went to our hotel, Hotel Bambu. Hotel Bambu is a nice hotel that has a pool and a small dock. On Christmas day my family went kayaking around the edges of the lake. We spotted some egrets. When we got back from our kayaking, we went to dinner in Santiago de Atitlan at another hotel and had a buffet turkey dinner with lots of other travellers.

After spending a couple of days in Santiago de Atitlan, the next day we took a boat tour around the lake and visited some other small villages, like San Pedro de Atitlan and San Marcos de Atitlan. Then we went back to Panajachel.

Surrounding Lake Atitlan are three extinct volcanoes. In all of the villages you can find Guatemalan people wearing their traditional clothes.
