Pase un día en el lago Atitlán, uno de los más hermosos lagos de Guatemala, en este crucero turístico con traslado desde la Ciudad de Guatemala. Esta relajante excursión de 8 horas le permite experimentar la belleza del lago Atitlán, un gran lago con tres volcanes en la orilla sur. Saldrá de Panajachel y hará un crucero por el lago admirando su espectacular paisaje mientras lo cruza hasta llegar al pueblo tzutujil de Santiago de Atitlán. Después volverá a Panajachel, donde dispondrá de tiempo para echar un vistazo a la artesanía local, las tiendas y los restaurantes de la calle Santander.
Definitely a must have experience. The tour guide was friendly and the vehicle was comfortable and clean. We enjoy off the beaten path experiences, however this is fairly cookie cutter which makes for a calm, pleasant day. Being foodies, the best part was the restaurant stop on the way back!
This was a fantastic tour with a wonderful guide. I had so many great experiences on this tour like riding the small tut tut vehicles, taking the boat to the other small town, visiting the large Catholic Church built in 1549, visiting the Idol of Mayans, eating a great meal and seeing how the people live and work. This tour is magnificent and my guide, Hiemi was the best.

Good trip, overall. Be sure to take photos from a vista point of lake and mountains before you get to the lake because later the volcanoes are covered by clouds. Our guide, Armando, gave us a lot of information and kept us engaged. The village at Santiago de Atitlan is interesting. Some uphill walking. Couple of nice coffee shops. Do bargain when buying local handicrafts. A local painter Nicolas de Reande and his family have a small gallery. Interesting paintings. Lunch at Panajachel can be a challenge. Try to stay away from Cassablanca restaurant. Perhaps, Atlantis maybe a better bet.
Spectacular! We loved this trip - the lake is magnificent, the landscape serene, and our guide Michael-Angelo (he guided us for 2 days) is second to no other! We were there in Sept 2014 - the weather was perfect, we walked around in t-shirts, shorts and hiking shoes. We carried a weather proof jacket (it can get cold on the boat and some spray at the bow; and the wind and rain is likely to pick up in the afternoon). Santiago Atitlin is unique - a whole town preserved in its own culture. Whilst walking through markets the lives, colours, aromas and vibrocity of this town touch your senses.
