San Juan La Laguna - excursions and day trips

Located in the highlands of Guatemala, San Juan La Laguna is a colorful Mayan village that is known for its unique murals and coffee plantations. While this town is small, it is one of the more traditional towns around Lake Atitlan. It is also one of the best places to go for a coffee tour.

There are many different cultural activities to do in San Juan. These include visiting the Catholic church, taking a half-day horseback ride, going to a textile cooperative, or even trying your hand at painting. You can even learn about the process of dyeing cotton with local women.

The Catholic church in San Juan La Laguna is a unique place to visit due to the juxtaposition of the old and new structures. The interior of the church features a beautiful pulpit, statues, and stained glass windows. The church's multi-dimensional stone facade is also impressive.

In addition to the church, there are many other cultural sites to see in San Juan. The library, located on a parallel street, has a large mural on the wall that explains Tz'utujil culture and history. Another art gallery showcases more of the same murals. You can also take a weaving workshop. Here you will learn how to turn cotton into naturally dyed weavings.

You can also go on a cultural tour that includes visiting a cemetery, a weaving workshop, a coffee plantation, and a walking tour of the murals. You can also take a boat to Panajachel for a few hours. The cost of a private boat is 150Q and up. However, the public boat is cheaper. It will only leave the dock when there are at least 15 passengers. It will also take some time to reach its destination. If you have a larger party, you may want to consider booking a private boat instead.

The Cayuco, a traditional wooden boat, is another popular attraction in San Juan. The fisherman here enjoy spending time with tourists. You can join them in the cayuco to learn more about their way of life. You can even go on a mini tour of the surrounding towns. The local markets are very lively and filled with exotic smells.

Among the more unusual attractions in San Juan are the two apiaries. You can either pay for a guided tour, or you can take a free tour. These tours are run by the Vazquez family. They will show you the apiaries and explain how the plants are used to make dyes for cotton. You can also donate to the apiaries.

Do I have to give my guide a tip?
No. It is not required and not expected of you to tip your guide. However, if one is presented, the guide might accept a gratuity. To guarantee that they are fairly compensated for their time, each guide sets the price of their tours. They do not depend on gratuities from tours as a result. If you want to support your guide, write a review of your tour.
What happens once I make a reservation?
After making the payment, you should wait at least 24 hours prior to the travel date for your Local Expert to confirm the requested date.

Is it possible to py in cash?
We have a policy that states that a reservation can only be verified after a legitimate payment has been made on our website.

How can I find out if a reservation has been confirmed?
When you finish making your online payment and the Local Guide accepts your booking request, your reservation will be finalized. You will receive a confirmation email. Don't worry; if the Local Guide does not confirm your booking after you provide your credit card information, the transaction will not be completed.
