The region in and around the southwestern highlands of Lake Atitlan is one of Guatemala's most picturesque and culturally rich destinations.
Formed from a massive volcanic crater and surrounded by steep pointy slopes, the area is home to several traditional Mayan villages including the town of Panajachel, San Juan la Laguna, Jaibalito and Santiago Atitlán where you can take in the ancient Mayan culture while exploring weaving and textile arts, coffee and agricultural plantations, local fishing practices and an unmissable boat tour of the lake’s history.
Check out the Atitlán nature reserve and coffee plantation that offers a network of walking trails and a butterfly garden. It's a 20-minute walk to the village of San Marcos for perusing the restaurants and shops where you can grab a local tuk-tuk or boat ride which launches every 20 minutes.
