Getting Active Among the Volcanoes – Lago de Atitlán, Guatemala

Lake Atitlán highlights

Cycle round the lake:

A gentle pedal is just the right pace to take in Lake Atitlán’s landscapes, street life, agricultural rhythms and the roads —plus, a bike ride is actually less bumpy than a tuk-tuk or minibus.

Climb Volcan San Pedro:

You’ll feel you’ve arrived when you reach the summit of this beautiful volcano.

Stay at Casa Palopó:

A night in a luxury hotel like this allows time to reflect and indulge in the amazing views from high up. Great value for this level of style, too.

Visit a coffee finca or cooperative:

You’ll see just how hard Guatemalans work to make the beautiful brew. Also, the shade-grown coffee trees look very beautiful.

Bed down at a homestay: Spend a night at in a local’s house — it’s eye-opening to see inside one of those many shacks you’ve been passing. The Maya are warm, welcoming people and more than happy to show off their families and homes.
