What do expats in Lake Atitlan appreciate most about the local culture?

Answer this Question

We asked expats and digital nomads what they appreciate the most about the local culture in Lake Atitlan. They wrote...

"Expats in Lake Atitlan appreciate the warmth and friendliness of the locals, the natural beauty of the volcanoes, lakes and forests that surround the area, and fully immerse themselves in the local culture by learning the Mayan language, eating traditional Mayan food, participating in local festivals and enjoying cultural activities such as visits to markets and villages, trips to hot springs and sacred Mayan sites. They also take pride in the local Mayan culture, which is still strongly evident in daily life," said another expat in Lake Atitlan, Guatemala.

"The absolute connection with nature...the organic...the spiritual...the honest simplicity of the lifestyle and the people who chose to live this lifestyle...the freedom to be me...which is outside the box..and to see so many others here are outside the box...lol the food,drink, and the language, and did I mention mi casa has a view like no other...the energy of the lake is mystical...and there is no words for the feeling...and the few village people I have met are awesome,loving and teach me so much...everyday is an adventure, growth and rich for me...in so many ways.The art, the buildings, the flora and fauna. I also chose my home based on the connection to the earth...I have more freedom, and more time. I am also happy my diet is better,healthier...the physical activity needed to live in a location which has no roads is wonderful for my body...I not only am learning about the people here, the land I am living in...but am learning so much about myself...and that is what I appreciate more than anything...okay not entirely true...as the cost of living in paradise is also one of the top 4 things for coming here..," wrote a member who made the move to Lake Atitlan, Guatemala.
