Photographer's Note

You can spot the girls from Santa Caterina on the main street in Panajachel by their distinctive blue head dress and blouse. You will find it awfully difficult not to buy something from this young lady with her ever present smile. I've got a lot of pictures of her but here I've got the smile and the sparkle in the eyes.

If you visit Panajachel on Lake Atitlan, it is important to visit the villages around the lake as well. Santa Caterina is a nice village with a new hotel and is more quiet - a relief from Pana. Also there is a good art gallery in town.

The little white church in Santa Caterina is also special. The drive from Panajachel to Santa Caterina has spectacular views. It's a rough hike - if you walk it, it is best at 5am in the cool dawn air.
