Santa Catarina Palopo Hot Springs

Lake Atitlan is full of limitless treasures.  Today we hopped in the back of a pickup taxi en route for Santa Catarina Palopo.  For 3 Quetzales a person (about $0.45) we rode with the wind in our hair to the next village around the lake from Panajachel.  A Short walk down to the lake shore and around the lake takes you to a simple but enjoyable spot with arguably one of the most beautiful views in the world.  The whole family can jump into Lake Atitlan from a large rock or just soak in the warm waters from the volcanic hot springs.  We spent the morning basking in the sun, enjoying the warm water, amazing view and talking with the locals.  We’ll be doing this one again.
