Guatemala: Lake Atitlan and villages

Visit Us

In turn cobalt glassy-clear and silver misty, mirror-calm and wispy-waved, Atitlán is one of the most captivating lakes in the world. Many visitors linger here, and the shores are dotted with international communities as well as traditional Mayan villages. The lake is fringed by tiny fields where smallholders cultivate kitchen garden crops on fertile soils, beyond which are fuming green volcanoes which cast ever-changing shadows over the water. Lakeside settlements, most easily reached by boat across the water, are enlivened with textile markets, each with its own costume and character: Sololá and Santiago de Atitlán are among the largest and most interesting.

What our experts say

I’ll never forget the peace and serenity of all the still water surrounded by volcanoes and small villages. I loved waking up to splendid views of the lake and going for long leisurely walks or taking a small boat to one of the numerous hamlets dotted around the lake – it was like a detox from the stresses and strains of busy working life.
