    A viagem até a lago é muito longa para...
    Ricardo A N P
    , Apr. 2017
    A viagem até a lago é muito longa para o benefício das atrações turísticas. Panajachel é a cidade principal do trajeto mas não tivemos tempo de conhecer, pois fomos direto para o atracadouro das lanchas não podemos chamar de cais, que muito pobre. Pegamos um bote grande com motor de popa com 2 fileiras de bancos metálicos e seguimos para Santiago Village por mais de 40 minutos num grande lago sem atrativos. Ao chegarmos na vila, que é muito pobre, só encontramos barracas de artesanatos padrões que existem em todos os cantos e pegamos alguns tuc tucs para adentrar numa favela suja de vielas estreitas até um casebre onde estava o boneco do jesus cristo maia, que lembra muito as sessões de macumba brasileira. Após a visita, caminhamos de volta ao atracadouro passando pela rua de barracas de artesanato depois de passar numa velha igreja. Mais 45 minutos de lancha e desembarcamos para o almoço. Fomos direcionados para um hotel na orla, tipo pousada, com restaurante simples e caríssimo, que nos fez sair e comer em dos pequenos restaurantes próximos pela metade do preço. Depois do almoço mais 4 horas de van para San José. Em resumo, não valeu a pena!
