Panajachel is often nicknamed Pana. In Panajachel there is no ruins of any historical value and monuments of the long-ago past, a rare case in Guatemala as it is. The main charm of the town is its situation on the shore of the most beautiful lake Atitlan. That is why tourists come here just to have a rest walking the hot back streets, boating on the lake, buying another souvenir portion and tasting the Guatemala exotic cuisine.
