Getting Here

To get there from Antigua or the city:

The fast way is the coastal route. Head down the highway towards Escuintla. Turn on the coast Hiway towards Mazatenango. Go to Cocales and turn right and head up the hill towards the lake. Go through Patulul and keep going up the hill until you reach San Lucas Toliman, where you turn off the main road and go through the town of San Lucas. At the other end of town just keep going. Drive through Santiago to the road that goes to San Pedro. The Festival is being held at the Atitlan Cultural Park, which is in canton Tzan Chaj. After you pass the Posada de Santiago, it's less than 2 kilometers further.Follow the posters!


The indianThe Festival Boats will be running continuously beginning at 9:30AM and will go until 9PM. THIS YEAR WE AREN'T PROMISING A MIDNIGHT BOAT!!! We don't have our own dock, but the people at the Posada de Santiago have graciously given us permission to use their dock. All official Festival boats will land there. Also, if there is too much wind, the boats won't travel at night. Better to come and camp out.

You can arrange for a private boat or do a collective (14 people) and it will take you anywhere at any time: write to info@festivalatitlan.comAmulet


There are also lots of private lanchas available. Since it is close to town there will be lots of tuktuks available to and from the Festival (Remember, this year it is in Tzam Chaj, on the San Pedro side of town.
