A trip to Guatemala wouldn’t be complete without heading to Lake Atitlan for a day of outdoor activities.

Our Kayak and Hike Excursion is the perfect way to spend a full day exploring Lake Atitlan from both on the water and from several hundred feet above. Paddle along the rugged and beautiful north shore, hike back through Mayan trails, and get up close with exotic plant life and bird species.

On this tour, you’ll also step into Mayan culture as you pass by farmers tending to their maize and coffee fields and men fishing from hand-hewn kayaks as they have for centuries.


Collecting you from your hotel in Antigua, the shuttle takes you on a scenic drive through the Western highlands, followed by a short but stunning boat ride across Lake Atitlan.
We gear up for a day of adventure, then paddle for 1 ½ -2 hours along the shores of Santa Cruz la Laguna, ending in San Marcos.

You have the opportunity to cliff jump into the crystal clear waters, or just enjoy a swim and sun.

For the next part of our adventure, you’ll be hiking along ancient paths that have been used by the Mayans for centuries.

This rugged and remote section of Lake Atitlan has barely been touched by the outside world.

Once you arrive back in Santa Cruz la Laguna, you’ll return to Antigua by shuttle as your day of adventure comes to an end.
