Everyone’s getting revved up for the Feria de San Pedro at #LakeAtitlan. They’re setting up booths in the streets today and the rides are on the way. I’ll update this post with details and specific dates for the festival. Until then, see Lake Atitlan for more info on things to do here.
The grand reopening of El Barrio Bar in San Pedro la Laguna take place on June 20 at 6 PM. Lots of drink and food specials are planned.There’s a new cook in town, Rick, and San Pedro’s top bartender, Eric, who poured the first King Kong Cuba at Barrio years ago, is back at the bar.
The Summer Solstice party starts with a solstice ceremony on Saturday at 6 PM. For more info on the local bar scene, see San Pedro Nightlife.
A pre-Grand Opening Party on Thursday night packed the house with locals, all glad to see the place open again and with an excellent staff.
Soccer fans in San Pedro will converge on at Alegre Pub, San Pedro la Laguna”s original sports bar, day in and day out starting June 12, for FIFA’s World Cup games.
During each game, you get a free beer when you buy a Bacon and Cheeseburger. A wide variety of other drink and food specials will make this the top place to watch the World Cup at Lake Atitlan as well as the lovely town of San Pedro la Laguna. The wraparound arrangement of big ass TVs is another good reason to watch the games at Alegre. Great beer prices, even on imported beer, is another.
Find out about the other bars that give this town the title of “Nightlife Capital of Lake Atitlan” at Nightlife Atitlan.
The annual fiesta in San Marcos la Laguna is happening right now, so hop on the next boat and head on over. This fiesta lasts all weekend. For more about this part of Lake Atitlan, see San Marcos la Laguna News.
This event takes place on April 9, Wednesday at 12:30. The Fifth Dimension is in San Pedro la Laguna’s zone viva, between Hostel Fe and the Orbita Spanish School, at Lake Atitlan, Guatemala.
The ceremony is on 10 Jaguar in the Mayan Sacred Calendar. Jaguar is a sign of inner strength and the sign most likely to attain the highest levels of spirituality.
