Guatemala, San Juan La Laguna Guide (B): 20 Authentic Things You Must Do in San Juan La Laguna

San Juan La Laguna is one of the smaller villages around Lake Atitlán, Guatemala and is a great day-trip destination from Panajachel or San Pedro.

However, you can also decide to only hike to the Cruz if you just want a quick view of the eastern shore of Lake Atitlán. For me, it was definitely one of the best things I have done in San Juan La Laguna. The entrance is opposite the gas station on the road to Santa Clara La Laguna.
