We excitedly headed down to the lake to catch a boat to our breakfast destination!
Their food is all homemade – hand selected from Panajachel’s indigenous market. I chose the homemade granola with coffee which was a perfect start to a Monday morning – “breakfast with a view” rarely comes better than this!
Then there was time for a little sunbathing before we re-boarded our boat.
This time heading to San Juan village. Here there is a GAdventures “Planeterra project” where they support families to get involved in the Posadas Mayas programme and also invests in solutions to reduce environmental impacts of tourism.
We were shown around by one of the residents, starting at an art gallery…
…then heading to a weavers, where they showed us how the create the wool, the colour and then the materials...
…where a number of us bought scarves from the local ladies, in support of the local community enterprises.

Then we piled into our bus for the long bumpy drive to Antigua.
The food, however, was not! I had a scrummy savoury pancake with bacon, ja;appends, tomatoes and crème cheese with a big glass of red wine!
