Photos from Santiago Atitlan, Guatemala

I spent a couple days in Santiago Atitlan, a small mayan village on lake Atitlan. This was by far my favorite town on the lake. It was quiet and there were few tourists. I stayed in a hotel run by a beautiful Mayan family called the Hotel San Pablo
Here are some photos from Atitlan.
