Lake Atitlan Boat Schedule | Price and Times

The article was viewed hundreds of times over the last few weeks with many comments and debates about the boat captains, prices, times and the hustlers on the streets of Panajachel. This week an article surfaced talking about these issues from a gringo point of view.

http://chasingmarbles.blogspot.com/2016/08/gringo-pricing.html

The price quotes are publicly posted prices on docks and some boats around the lake.

We decided to kind of clear the air and offer some facts and education about using boats to get around Lake Atitlan and what to avoid.

Lake Atitlan Boat Schedule Price Times Updated

Lets start with catching a boat from Panajachel to Santa Cruz/Jaibalito/San Marcos/San Pablo/San Juan/San Pedro. As the map below indicated by the little ferry Icon there are 2 ferry docks in Panajachel.

For the villages listed above you want to use the dock by Hotel y Centro de Convenciones.

Which is on Calle Del Embarcedero.

Avoiding the street hustlers on Calle Santander and Rancho Grande you will be greeted by street hustlers down both of these streets close to the lake.

AVOID THESE OFFERS.

For those still confused about how the boat service works another map to explain. In San Pedro similar to Panajachel there are 2 docks. Each offer different end destinations. The Panajachel to San Pedro boats land at the dock in San Pedro with the hill one must climb, the best way to describe it with the new floating docks.

The Santiago dock is on the other side of San Pedro in a flooded area. The boats are larger and go about ever 2 hours to Santiago and visa versa. Again if you are going to Santiago these boat captains will try and charge for non locals as high as Q30. Q20 is the price.

Please note there are no boat services from Santiago to San Lucas Toliman or frolm Santiago to any other villages around the lake only Santiago to Pana or San Pedro.
