San Pedro, Guatemala (map)
We are not sure if it’s true, but we believe there is no term in the Mayan language for the term switchback.
From Antigua we headed to the small city of San Pedro on Lake Atitlan to enjoy the views, hiking, and take in some Spanish immersion lessons. After a few classes I learned my ADD has even less tolerance than before and found I more was paying my Spanish teacher to be my friend and teach me about the culture and history of the region; which I greatly enjoyed and appreciated his lenience.
After just a couple of classes we made our plans to tackle the big hike straight up the San Pedro Volcano and move on to our next destination!
