The EverMaya story begins with a serene 45-minute boat ride across Guatemala’s Lake Atitlan, one of the most beautiful, awe-inspiring natural bodies of water on our planet. Surrounded by three lush, towering volcanoes, it is more than a thousand feet deep at its core. We edged ever nearer to lean over the sides of the craft, mouths agape, and eyes traveling the slope of the volcanoes, heavenward.
We glided over her surface en route to visit the connecting villages at the foot of the lake. Arrive at any one of these villages, and the Mayan culture sings sweetly to her guests. Come closer – sample her sunny, handmade, quality woven fabrics, her aromatic café with earthy, chocolaty tones. “This is Color Country!” Cara observed, “We are in Color Country!”
