We were on a very short stay in Guatemala - a few days in Antigua and one night at Lake Atitlan. Carlos was the guide who drove us from Antigua through the Highlands to the Lake. He was right on time for our early pick up, and was SO FRIENDLY and ENGAGING!
On the Pan American Highway, traffic came to a complete standstill, due to a mudslide. Once we realized it would not be opened up anytime soon, Carlos ventured off with us to find a back way to our destination. ...over some mountains and through some woods, some small village/towns too, he did get us there. The drive was scenic and Carlos kept filled us in on lots of Guatemalan history and current day politics. We loved it, and honestly enjoyed the detour.
Carlos picked us up the next morning to get us to the airport - not a short drive from Lake Atitlan. But we left plenty of time, so he took us to one of his favorite local spots for breakfast. Delicious place, super friendly people, as all over in Guatemala!
We definitely plan to return to Guatemala for a longer stay and will absolutely be calling Carlos to help us plan our trip!
