Second Atitlan Jazz/Blues Cruise

Atitlan Jazz/Blues Cruise

On December 1st, 2012, from 12:00 PM to 8PM we will be presenting a special Blues and Jazz event. We will be picking up 150 lucky people from the dock in Panajachel and cruising them over to the Hotel Bambu(in Santiago Atitlan) where they will listen to the sweet Blues guitar of Carlos Funk, dance to the Marco Trio Electric, and get the opportunity to savor some of the Bambu's excellent Brick oven Pizza. Then, it's off to the Posada de Santiago for The Blues Rocket, a New Orleans style band, Imox Jazz Quartet, and Otis Brown and the Blu Dawgs. The Posada will be serving up a Gourmet Barbecue. Then the boat will take the satisfied cruisers back to Panajachel
