The laid back village with a big river running through it has been popular since the 60’s. It is like one of those places in the world that have a circle of hippies that never left, the 60’s. I am one of them and really enjoy living in Panajachel. It’s nice mixture of Mayan and modern culture through art and expression is the very aspect “we” have to offer to tourists travelling to Panajachel, Guatemala.
