The teleferico is not working

Unfortunately the teleferico is not working more. The government should keep operating this attraction. The lake view should be awesome.

It is 40 minutes. It is in a popular place. I felt it insecure. It is not working. It is dirty and is not a nice place to go. Don´t spend time traveling it is not worth it.

Visited Amatitlan and to our surprise the teleferico was open. Great views of the lake. You can see the efforts to restore the lake's health. At the top you can find a park with nice trail to walk and chocolate covered strawberries.

Lots of fun, amazing views. This is a nice way to see Guatemala and meet its people as this is an attraction for the locals as well.

We just spent Sunday afternoon in Amatitlan. Unfortunately, the tram wasn't running. From what I gathered, it has been down for some time. Nonetheless, the lake is well worth visiting especially if you'd like a great mojarra (fish) lunch. The atmosphere around the lake is very festive. From candy and balloon sellers to delicious eateries, it's a local Guatemalan tourist... More
