Go kayaking on Lake Atitlan

GUA13kayak atitlanfreeGTB

Embrace the elements on a kayaking trip on the glittering waters of Lake Atitlán.

The ethereal waters of Lake Atitlán are the glittering centrepiece of a scenic area abounding in nature, culture and rural charm. We can think of few better ways to immerse yourself in this tranquil natural environment than by kayaking on the lake itself, exploring at your own pace and under your own steam.

Enjoy the stunning 360-degree panorama of the surrounding mountains and villages as seen from Lake Atitlán’s shimmering surface. Stopping along the way to visit native Mayan communities, you will also get to relax in the warm waters of hot springs dotted around the lake's edge.
