"Lago di Atitlan - 'the most..." Guatemala Things to Do Tip by DianeDundee

Guatemala Things to Do: 250 reviews and 474 photos


Lago di Atitlan - 'the most beautiful lake in the world' - it is a volcanic caldera which means it was created when the cone of a volcano collapsed. There are still other volcanoes (so distinctive in shape) around the lake. Take a boat trip from the main town of Panajachel (once the hippy capital of Guatemala) to some of the smaller villages around the lake - many famed for their handicrafts. On the lake you can see villagers using traditional wooden canoes and get some fantastic views of the surrounding countryside.
