San Marcos is one of the most popular villages around the lake to visit and for foreigners to live. It is known as the holistic centre of Lake Atitlan. Here you can find a multitude of alternative therapy centres, massage therapist, as well as meditation and yoga centres. People come from all over the world to get treatments here and attend courses. It also boasts a wonderful array of good restaurants, bars and cafes offering good food and company.
San Marcos is mainly accessed by boats (lanchas) that plough back and forth along the north shore approx. every 20 mins from 6am-5pm. It is about a 45-min ride to Pana(jachel), the commercial and transport hub of Lake Atitlan. There is a road to San Marcos but the condition of this road is sometimes questionable!
