I’ve received several packages from Cargo Expreso–items shipped from the US via FedEx and then sent via Cargo Expreso from Guatemala City. I can’t say it’s been perfect. A couple times the drivers have been… testy… when we didn’t know they were already in Pana and we didn’t answer the phone right away to arrange delivery. However, everything has arrived in excellent condition.
I also use Cargo Expreso to send large envelopes (especially now that Guatemala’s postal service is non-existent). I just sent a large envelope to Antigua. I dropped it off on Tuesday afternoon and it arrived in Antigua Friday morning. The cost was Q35.

Vendors from far and wide spread their tipico in the Bomberos parking lot every Tuesday and Friday. This is the place for wholesale (as-is), authentic handwoven goods. One of the best markets of its kind in Guatemala.
The market typically runs from about 8:30am to 3pm, but get there early for best selection.
The Lake Atitlan Wellness Clinic is a FREE clinic intended to support the local indigenous Mayan population who have lived in this area for hundreds of years and who are in peril. Our patients pay whatever they feel they can afford, if anything, as it is strictly voluntary for our patients to make donations. We do encourage our patients to pay if they can, to help with the acquisition of medicines for others who are unable to provide for their healthcare and to help us pay our rent.

We are based in Panajachel and our portfolio covers a diverse selection of properties to suit every taste and budget, situated in towns and rural areas around the lake shore and parts of the caldera.
We are an El Salvadorian / British couple, who have chosen Lake Atitlan as our home. Between us we have an extensive knowledge of Guatemala, the Lake Atitlan area, tourism, and real estate. Not only can we help you with all your real estate requirements, but also with any transport or travel, finding a Spanish teacher or school, or information on volunteer opportunities, visa requirements, or supporting one of the many wonderful NGOs (non-profits) working around the lake.
We are here to help you find your perfect dream home to buy or rent, or buy and then rent! And we will do whatever we can to make this experience as stress free as possible. Buying a property in a foreign country like Guatemala can seem a daunting prospect without the language or local know-how. We can help you through the labyrinth of Guatemalan bureaucracy and red tape, acting as your advocate and translator; be it for the purchase or a property, to ship furniture or other goods, or just to renew your tourist visa.
Once you have found your perfect home, if you are not planning to be there full-time, we can also help rent your home as a profitable vacation rental, and/or manage it, keeping an eye on maintenance (very important during the rainy season) and paying your workers etc.
In all respects we go the extra mile to provide you with a professional service.
