"Visit the beautiful Lake..." Guatemala Favorite Tip by magicpeople

Guatemala General: 104 reviews and 81 photos


Favorite thing: Visit the beautiful Lake Atitlan 3 hour North of Guatemala City. The Lake is a wonderful place to hang out and to see some local indiginous villages.Particularly that of SanPedro de Laguna on the far side of the lake.

Fondest memory: Walking round the ancient ruins of Tikal in the Peten region.You are totally encompassed by jungle as you stroll around.You can miss all the 'tourists' if you go on the right day and at the right time. Looking over the jungle from the top of templo 4 late in the afternoon all alone and listening to the howler monkeys was awesome.
