Dear Guest

There is much to do around the Lake, from Mayan cultural activities to leisurely visits to native artists & artisans in their home communities.

Atitlan is famous for three volcanoes on its south shore. Arrangements can be made to climb any of these. The easiest & most economic to climb and arrange (as well as the most secure) is Volcan San Pedro.

There is a secure hiking trail from Panajachel that traverses the caldera rim and drops down to native communities at lakeside. It offers a variety of terrain (woods, farming & flower fields) and great lake views. It is perfect for picture taking.

The lakeshore is spotted with indigenous Mayan communities. These have preserved much of their tradition - some more than others. Most interesting is San Juan La Laguna, where local artisans weave their textiles using thread they make from their own cotton trees and dyes from plants they grow. Here you can also find:

  · Medicinal plant gardens (with herbs for sale)

  · An artisan chocolate factory (that sells it’s products)

  · A coffee growing & processing cooperative where you can see how coffee berries are processed into coffee. (You can buy locally-produced quality coffee.)

  · Artist galleries where Mayan artists paint (& sell) their quality art work at unbeatable prices

Small Western/Bohemian-style enclaves have sprung-up in some of the local communities. The residents are largely focused on minimalist life styles, meditation, natural food. Tours can be arranged to visit these communities and their residents. San Pedro is the best choice for restaurants and cafes. San Marcos is best for economic massages & natural products for sale..

We arrange tours as a service to guests. Any profit realized goes directly to people who work with us for any specific services they provide (i.e., as guides).
