We were back to Lake Atitlán this past weekend as DiploMom had a friend in town for a visit. We have really enjoyed being able to visit many of the towns around the lake, as each one has its own distinctive feel and personality. We started our morning off with a first visit to San Marcos La Laguna, where we had a nice breakfast and enjoyed wandering some of the narrow walkways that lead to the various yoga, meditation, and holistic centers in the town.
San Marcos is the town for all things esoteric, and for lack of a better term, spiritual. It made for some interesting people watching as we constantly speculated on what had brought the motley assortment of gringos to this place, what their stories were and how long they were going to be in the area.
