Natural beauty, Mayan culture and idyllic villages

Surrounded by purple volcanic mountains and dark green pine forests, the shifting blue depths of Lake Atitlan make it one of the most beautiful, colourful lakes anywhere in the world. Situated over 1,500m above sea level, a dozen or so idyllic villages dot its shoreline and highlight the enduring Mayan culture that remains so strong in this region.

On your Lake Atitlan tour you can enjoy a serene boat trip around the lake, visiting wonderful old settlements such as Panajachel, one of the main centres with shops and restaurants, and the village of San Juan La Laguna which is famous for its hand-woven textiles.

Alternatively, you can head out under your own steam to soak up heavenly Lake Atitlan’s constantly changing colours, from aquamarine to emerald to azure. A&K can arrange any number of outdoor activities in the area, including kayaking, mountain biking and hiking treks on trails around the lake, all with expert guidance.
