People (which people, I'm not exactly sure) call Lago Atitlan one of the most beautiful wonders of the world. It is beautiful. It has sustained life here for thousands of years. Fishing, washing clothes, bathing, drinking, cooking with the water, swimming, and most recently tourism.
As with most developing countries there is not knowledge of, nor room for environmental concern. Every year, the lake gets a little dirtier. More garbage gets washed into it. More algae blooms and cynobacteria appears. There is even a legend that an entire village is at the bottom of the lake. Who knew!

The bar/restaurant. Everyone is watching the World Cup.
Lounge area across from the restaurant. Further down is a bar and stool area and a dance floor that runs into another bar that serves only on Saturday during the fiesta.
Another lounge area right on the sand. I actually preferred this area. Any time you have a lounge area with cloth and pillows in a humid climate (like the one above), you inevitably get mold and bugs. Note the hammocks to the left. This is where Sarah and I spent a lot of time. A LOT!
