What we specify as real estate area 1 lies between Panajachel and San Antonio Palopó. This area is connected by road and is the most accessible area around Lake Atitlan. You can drive down by car from Quetzaltenango or Guatemala City via Sololá to Panajachel and there is an alternative road taking you from Panajachel via San Andres Semetabaj to Guatemala City in about 2 to 2,5 hours.
Panajachel is a popular village because it is the most accessible and central. Many NGO’s have their headquarters here and you’ll find various hotels, super markets and other suppliers of goods in Pana. Real estate has been taking a boost in the first lustrum in the third millennium, and the few open properties still available are not cheap to come by. Prices on the other hand have not gone up the last years and even started to come down from its height which is making Panajachel an interesting area for investments again.
In recent years the municipality of Panajachel improved the infrastructure in general which is noticeable. A state of the art library in the center of town and a new market which has been a big improvement are amongst its accomplishments. Very important is the availability for English schooling in Panajachel, three schools are available.
