If you live in Panajachel, you can find lots of hardware stores and generally what you are looking for. But, other places on the lake you are less lucky. Now that I live in San Antonio I find myself making trips to Pana looking for things. Sometimes it is worth it, sometimes not. Well, it seems like this is now an on-line alternative.
CEFESA doesn’t have everything but they have a lot of stuff, they are on-line and they will ship stuff to you via GuatEx. What is listed is a bit strange (they may have wire in green but no other color, for example) so I assume the listing is evolving. The biggest change is that they finally fixed a bug in their web site in the credit card processing software so it actually works for me. (They said it worked but it didn’t work with Firefox, Chrome or Vivaldi on a Linux system.)
My first order is on the way but I don’t expect any problems. GuatEx knows me well now.
