these videos have been fascinating…I knew very little about Guatemala and
I see it is far more “user friendly” than I had thought. I didn’t realize
how much they cater to the vacationer…both local and foreign of course.
this little town was especially lovely as you said….very inviting little
places to enjoy! thanks for providing these great views…Your videos show
us exactly what it would be like to take the adventure…a real treat for
us…many of us will never go…but I bet a ton of people watch these to
help plan their trips!

Looks like an exciting boat ride. I can’t imagine what it would be like
with rough water 🙁 Also loved that nice rock wall towards the end of
your walk ! Thanks again.

Greg Butler says:

Just wanted to let you know how awesome your videos are. I’m going to be
backpacking the same route this fall so I’m taking notes!

yes indeed this is an amazing lake and villages! I was just reading about
it on wikipedia AND it say the Surface elevation 1,562 m (5,125 ft) That
mean the lake surface is almost as high elevation as Denver Colorado the
mile high city!

Wiki quote, It is shaped by deep surrounding escarpments and three
volcanoes on its southern flank. The lake basin is volcanic in origin,
filling an enormous caldera formed by an eruption 84,000 years ago.
