Welcome to Lake Atitlán. Picture an amazing natural wonder parallel to none; you will find yourself captivated by its sweeping vistas and crystal blue waters.
Few destinations have the ability to stir your soul and fulfill your desires for adventure, culture, history, romance, and excitement as the highlands of Guatemala. The lake is surrounded by 12 inactive volcanoes, which tower over the waters. These magical volcanoes, winding mountains, and beautiful valleys are the land of the Maya. The Mayan culture is very strong and active here, and that is the one element that distinguishes us from other destinations around the world. The lake gets its name from the Mayan word Atitlán, which means "where the rainbow gets its color."
You can combine any of our kayak excursions with other highlights in the country. Kayak Guatemala offers multi-sport expeditions; rock climbing, hiking, horseback riding, and private lake tours on our exclusive pontoon boat.
After each day of activities, you can relax and enjoy a massage at our Los Elementos Day Spa.
