The holiday destination of San Pedro La Laguna has a relaxed, bohemian feel with a superb setting and is one of the most popular lakeside holiday spots. The village is centred on the Catholic Church and the market place and narrow cobbled streets lead sharply up the hill from the ferry docks.
Spread around the centre of San Pedro La Laguna are coffee plantations, and little picturesque paths among them lead along the lake to where boulders and beaches provide ideal opportunities for some peaceful sunbathing and swimming. In the San Pedro La Laguna village there are also thermal pools offering further ways in which to relax while on holiday, with superb views of the volcanoes an added luxury. Volcán San Pedro, behind the village, offers some strenuous hiking rewarded with breathtaking views.
