The laid-back agricultural village of San Juan La Laguna lies roughly two kilometres from San Pedro, on the southern shore of Lake Atitlan.

The community, a population of 95% Tz’utujil, has formed cooperatives of organic farmers, coffee growers and natural dyers, and take great pride in their traditional crafts, most notably painting and weaving.

Santiago Atitlan is a large lake community known for its rich traditional Tz'utujil Maya culture. The local people still wear authentic brightly coloured and decorated clothing, and customs of the Maya Catholicism are celebrated at the numerous sacred sites and churches.
