Filed under: Birds — Tags: — admin @ 10:11 pm

Atitlan Reserva – Panajachel.

The next morning in Panajachel, I get up not that early, have muesli for breakfast. No coffee. Then start walking towards the reserve, looking for a tuk-tuk to take me there. Finally one comes along and drops me off outside for 15 Quetzals ($2.50).
