Lake Atitlan is a must visit for anyone visiting Guatemala with fun lodges in which to stay and some great restaurants. The Mayan villages that surround the lake are great windows into the Guatemala people, especially the Mayans, and their many artistic talents. My favorite...More

Cooking classes, hiking, enjoying sunrises & sunsets, boat rides, Spanish school, Yoga, treatments, kayaking (check waves), inviting restaurants, good price-performance ratios, secondhand and artesania shopping, lake-diving on altitude.. these are just a few of the activities you can find around Lake Atitlan. From San Pedro...More

Huxley never said this. He compared Lake Atitlan, mostly unfavorably, with Lake Como. The quote is tourist propaganda. Also Huxley was almost legally blind. Might as well "quote" Helen Keller.

I can't imagine a person not being in awe and love with this beautiful lake. Hopefully, they can get in it too, meaning swim. We stayed at Kaalpul Atitlan Eco Hotel & Spa, which had its own swimming area in incredibly clean water. It was...More

if Panajacel is called Gringotenango, then places like San Marcos la Laguna or San Pedro la Laguna should be called Freakatenango... Except with some very few places in India, I never saw so many freaks on one place like in the villages around this lake....More

Avoid Panajachel and go to the small little towns around the lake. You can go to eco hotels, air b&b's, pensiones, regular hotels, etc. There are a lot of expensive traps for the tourist looking for the natural, eco, kind of environment. Do your research...More
