San Pedro Lake Atitlan

The town has many places for backpackers, many people have stayed her for years. You either like it or you don't, but its worth a visit as there are many hikes to villages, coffee tours and volcano's from here.
Bars and food for everyone, if you over do it on booze, you can also find plenty of herbal tea's, juice bars and yoga classes.
