Guatemala Correspondent Mike Anderson, just took a second look at the lake after a 32-year absence, and immediately made Lake Atitlán his second overseas residence – on a 45-foot passenger boat that he’s remodeling to live aboard! Lake Atitlán is in the heart of the traditional Mayan region; these Mayan descendants still live and dress much as they did a hundred years ago, while struggling with the stresses of modernity.

Their culture provides a fascinating accent over the natural beauty of the lake. To these features add an “eternal spring” climate, a cost of living that’s 50% less than North America, and a great expat community that loves to socialize – if that checks-off the major items on your overseas destination wish-list, you’ll definitely want to read this Overseas Haven Report.
