What should I pack when moving to Panajachel?

Answer this Question

We asked people living in Panajachel to list three things they wish they had brought and three they wish they had left behind. They responded...

"When moving to Panajachel, it is important to pack items that will help you adjust to the climate and culture. Pack comfortable, lightweight clothing that is suitable for the warm, tropical climate. Bring a good pair of walking shoes, as the terrain in Panajachel is hilly and cobblestoned. Don't forget to bring a raincoat and umbrella, as the area is known for its frequent rain showers. Bring a Spanish-English dictionary and phrasebook to help you communicate with the locals. Finally, bring any necessary medications and toiletries, as these items may be difficult to find in Panajachel," said a member in Panajachel, Guatemala.

"I wish I had brought a LED Flash light, portable water filtering device and portable solar phone charger when I moved to Guatemala. I wish I had left behind extra clothes, luggage and prejudices," remarked another expat who made the move to Panajachel, Guatemala.
