The traditional Santa Claus piñata will be the star of the show at today’s Cinco de Mayo party at The Deep End Bar and Pool in San Pedro la Laguna, Lake Atitlan. Alegre Pub hosts a Cinco de Mayo party tonight, with Q5 tequila shots and Mexican beer specials.
In Panajachel, the places to party are Cafe Atlantis and Circus Bar.
Cinco de Mayo (which means “fifth of May”) is celebrated across the top half of Central America, even though it is a Mexican holiday. It recalls the day that Mexican troops defeated Napoleon’s French soldiers in the Battle of Puebla.
