It was so nice to visit lake Atitlan and the small communities around it... To visit towns around the lake you'd need to take a boat... We visited San Juan, San Pedro and Santiago... From those 3 towns we liked San Juan the most, they...More

It is like 3 hours bus travel to the port where you take the boat in the lake, on your way you will see a waterfall, and while getting near will have the views of the volcanoes. Then on the boat you will travel to...More

I've got really mixed feelings about Lake Atitlan. One one hand, it is a truly amazing, majestic experience that creates a feeling of awe. The views of the volcanoes are truly incredible and I took some amazing photographs. On the other hand, you have to...More

Lake Atitlan would easily be ranked as one of the most beautiful lakes in the world. It's accompanied by stunning volcanos and picturesque lakeside villages that offer a memorable landscape. The challenging and sad part of this is the lakes contamination. Polluted with bacteria, aging...More

Lake Atitlan might be the most beautiful place I've ever been to. If you're in Guatemala you must visit. It will be worth it once you're on the water.

Some people say it is just a lake. But don't forget that it is the biggest high lake. With the vulcanoes around it it makes for a spectacular view. Take the boat to all the little towns around it to get a good look at...More

Went here with a guide from Antigua. If you have elevation sickness be careful, I got elevation sickness during the trip but forged on despite it all. Beautiful lake to cross. The best town is the one with the Mayan women who keep their traditions...More

The blue boats seriously give you a jolt if you sit up in the front of them. Our driver was going fast, so that may be the reason why. If it was a smooth sailing ride, then I would have enjoyed it a lot more....More

This country is one of my favorites and the good thing is that not too many tourist come here. Why? well if people drink coca cola, which is bad for your health, why would they come to Guatemala. They rather go to Miami or Paris...More
