San Antonio Palopo

San Antonio Palopo is an authentic Mayan town on the shore of Lake Atitlán in the Western Highlands of Guatemala.

Understand

San Antonio Palopo has very few of the tourist trappings nor traffic. It's known for it's ceramics and it's beautiful but simple native dress (Traje). The villagers are cautious but will greet your smile with an even bigger one.

Though a laid back and simple Mayan village, San Antonio Palopo can service tourists nicely, if only a couple dozen at a time.

Sleep

There's two restaurants/hotels that service travelers and a bed and breakfast that also includes use of a kayak.
