Trekking to Lake Atitlán

Officially one month in! We left Chico Mendez last week for our three day trek to the lake. It was a challenging trip but everyone worked really hard and it was also lots of fun. It was so rewarding to look up at a mountain knowing we had just climbed it that day! On the last day, we got to see an amazing view of the sunrise over the lake. It rough getting up and starting our hike at 3 AM but well worth it! Later that day we finally arrived at a little town on Lake Atitlán where we got to eat lunch and swim before getting on a boat over to our beautiful house for the Yoga and meditation retreat. We spent the next few days relaxing and recharging through group activities, yoga classes, and individual time. We are now back in Antigua enjoying the city and planning our student directed travel. We are thinking of spending a few days at the beach then coming back to the city to see a Day of the Dead kite festival. For now we are heading to El Paredon for the week to work with La Choza Chula!
