Dr. Louis Dr Pena Rosenwinkel just announced that free medicine and medical services for those who cannot afford them will be available at the new Health Clinic in Panajachel this month. The big party to celebrate is on March 6 at the Hotel Porta del Lago. Funds raised by ticket sales will help cover medicine for the young and old.

For an afternoon of pampering in style, ladies should check out the Day Spa package at Hotel Mikaso in San Pedro la Laguna. It includes hot tub time on the roof, a massage, facial and lunch. Find out more at Hotel Mikaso.
The most modern, professional health facility on this side of Lake Atitlan is Hospitalito in Santiago, which serves the local population of 50,000 Maya and a growing ex-pat community.
Savvy locals from San Pedro and San Marcos also go here for lab work, X-rays, treatment and a full range of other medical services. Funded by donations, Hospitalito needs to buy a new ambulance to better serve the community. For more information, email the treasurer (David at Posada Santiago) at Help Hospitalito Santiago.
