Lake Atitlan, Panajachel and Santiago Village Day Trip by Boat from Guatemala City


After hotel pickup in Guatemala City, you’ll greet your guide and board an air-conditioned coach destined for Lake Atitlán. Travel through the dramatic landscapes of the western highlands and admire dense pine forests and colorful highland villages as you learn about Mayan culture. On arrival in Panajachel, you’ll climb aboard a boat and enjoy a scenic ride across Lake Atitlán — a beautiful body of water flanked by undulating hills and mighty volcanoes. Learn about the virtually unchanged cultural traditions of lakeside settlement, Santiago Atitlán, and observe women embroidering colorful materials.   Then, purchase a fulfilling lunch in Panajachel, before taking a tour of the historic, pre-Colombian village. Your tour concludes with drop-off back at your Guatemala City.
