Described as “the closest thing to Eden on Earth” and “the most beautiful lake in the world”, Lake Atitlan is undoubtedly one of Central America’s scenic highlights. With its volcanic backdrop and glistening waters, the natural landscape is best discovered on both land and water. This Lake Atitlan hike and kayak adventure offers both; spend two days discovering beautiful scenery, exotic plants, bird life, and jaw-dropping waterfalls as you kayak alongside the rugged north shore and hike through the secluded Pumpatin Canyon.

This two Day Kayak and Hike Adventure from Antigua includes a visit to Santa Cruz la Laguna, a kayak tour of the lake, swim and cliff jump or rock climb (optional), and a hike from the Maya Ruta through San Marcos, Tzununa, El Jaibalito. Meals, beverages, and a night’s accommodation are included so you can fully enjoy the adventure. The itinerary can be customized specially for you with a great mix of activities from mild to extreme.
