Board your air-conditioned transportation for the approximately two and a half-hour guided drive to the highlands of Guatemala and Lake Atitlan. Located at over 4,000 feet above sea level, the lake is over 1,000 feet deep and is surrounded by three very impressive volcanoes. The lake itself was formed after the last eruption 85,000 years ago and today occupies only a portion of the original caldera. Arrive at San Lucas Toliman, one of the many small villages surrounding the lake, and board a ferry for the scenic cruise across the lake to the town of Panajachel. Disembark the ferry for a leisurely 20-minute walk, time permitting, to the main street where there are many local Mayan people selling their colorful hand-woven textiles and other souvenirs. Savor a tasty lunch at one of the town's premier hotels and relax marveling at the view prior to your return cruise across the lake and then the drive back to the ship.
