Explore beautiful Lake Atitlán on this tour from Antigua Guatemala: enjoy a boat trip from Panajachel to Santiago and discover the region's indigenous cultures.
Lake Atitlan Tour & Boat Trip
At 7:30 am on the day of your tour, we'll pick you up from your chosen meeting point in Antigua Guatemala and head to Panajachel whose indigenous traditions remain deeply rooted in every corner of this vibrant Guatemalan town.
Arriving in Panajachel, we'll board a boat ready for a cruise across Lake Atitlán. The lake is considered by many to be one of the most beautiful in the world. See it for yourself as you admire the spectacular view of the Tolimán, Atitlán and San Pedro volcanoes towering over the twinkling waters of the lake.
The boat trip will take us to Santiago de Atitlán, a picturesque town where you'll get to see the traditional style of the Tzʼutujil people, one of 21 different Maya ethnic groups that live in Guatemala. Learn all about the typical products and crafts that are made in the region, like the beautiful and vividly coloured tunics embroidered with animals and flowers.
After touring the streets of Santiago de Atitlán, we will return to Panajachel by boat. Here you will have free time to eat (not included) or explore the streets of the town at your own pace.
We'll head back to Antigua Guatemala for around 7 pm.
