If you are planning a stop in Pana - I highly recommend staying with Jenna. A short walk from the hustle and bustle, just one block from the edge of the lake the location puts you in the perfect place to relax, enjoy and explore. The rooms are immaculately clean and beautifully decorated with so much personality and charm - you truly get a taste of Guatemala and it's wonderful handicraft offerings. This is not only in the rooms, but also in the main house and garden. There are many areas to sit and relax, all beautifully adorned with Guatemalan flair. In addition to an entertainment area there is a fire place and an art gallery featuring many different crafts and artists from the area.
I would highly recommend indulging in the family style breakfast Jenna and her staff prepare. Always fresh and featuring traditional fare. It is delicious and big sogo hungry and get charged up for a day touring the lake, hiking the surrounding area, or shopping the markets.
Last but not least, Jenna herself is a gem. Full of enthusiasm and helpful knowledge. Anything you are interested in doing - she will help you find the perfect connection to make it happen. Wanna learn traditional cooking techniques? Done. Figure out what is going on in the different lake towns and if you need a guide? No problem. Try out local weaving on a loom? Just ask. She has lived in the area for years, is a talented artist in her own right and is more than happy to make your stay the most relaxing or eventful as you wish.
I will certainly be back. Thank you Jenna for your time, care, and attention to detail. You made our stay in Pana wonderful!
