Tierra Linda, Spanish for Beautiful Land, is a highland community above Panajachel. It is a 45 minute rough ride by van or a 45 minute steep walk down the mountainside to Panajachel. Every piece of useable land is planted with such crops as corn, onions, beans and potatoes. There are very few jobs in Tierra Linda so most people need to go to Pana for employment. The scenery is beautiful but the poverty was the reason Paso decided to help Tierra Linda.
