Lake Atitlan and villages: Fish with local fishermen on Lake Atitlan

Fish with local fishermen on Lake Atitlan

To get closer to the rich culture that surrounds Lake Atitlán, try this authentic experience in the company of local fishermen, who will take you out with them to demonstrate their age-old fishing methods and traditions.

First you’ll cross the full length of the glittering lake by private boat to reach the rustic town of San Juan la Laguna. Here you will join fishermen from the lakeside community as they make their daily voyage out onto the sapphire waters of the lake to provide for their families, just as countless generations of ancestors have done before them.
