    San Juan La Laguna does not have nearly as many tourists as other towns around the lake, and so it is a much quieter, more relaxed place to stay. As part of the cultural tour on the area, visiting painters on the main street can be founded painting in the naive style with some eagle eye style. Agriculture is most important for the economy, with some organic coffee and organic plantations, and also with the service sector growing, especially as the number of tourists increase.
