Activities In And Around Lake Atitlán, Guatemala

Since the environment around Lake Atitlán is so divers and consists of villages, mountains, and volcanoes, there is plenty of opportunity for walking, hiking, back packing, climbing, bird watching, coffee tours, horseback riding, and biking.

On the lake, the option for kayaking, swimming, jet skiing, and scuba diving at one of the many diving centers are available.

If you rather like people watching than you sure came to the right place. You can visit nature reserves, attend Mayan ceremonies, get education on the Mayan culture, see the many folkloristic outfits the people wear.

Yes, yes, even the more adventurous types can get it out of their system. Simply go to Reserva Natural de Atitlan, pay $12 and take a zip line 'tour'. You will be able to get an excellent look at Lake Atitlán and its valley.

Shopaholics can live it up at San Antonio where a market is held twice a week on Wednesdays and Saturdays. The market offers lots of native goods and products such as Guatemalan pottery, apparel and other unique souvenirs.

Another destination would be Santiago de Atitlan which is the largest town on the lakeside. Mostly painters, weavers, and pottery makers reside here and you are most welcome to see them at work.

If none of the above is your cup of tea, don't worry; there is something for you too. You can marvel in the serenity of nature, admire the gorgeous views and scenery, and/or visit the Las Piramides del Ka. This is the center for meditation where you can work on your spiritual wellness and happiness.

I don't think you would have to; spending some time at Lake Atitlán probably already does the trick!
