What do I need to know before moving to Panajachel?

Answer this Question

When we asked people what advice they would give someone preparing to move to Panajachel, they said...

"Expatriates moving to Panajachel should be aware that the city is located in a mountainous region and the climate is generally cool and humid. It is important to be aware of the local customs and culture, as well as the language, as Spanish is the primary language spoken in the area. Expats should also be aware that the cost of living in Panajachel is relatively low, and that the city is a popular tourist destination. Additionally, expats should be aware that the city is relatively safe, but it is important to take precautions when travelling around the area," explained one expat living in Panajachel, Guatemala.
