Adventures, Tours & Activities

Communing in the stronghold of the living Maya, one embraces the rich textures and colorful beauty of their ancient ways.

Lake Atitlan is an incredible venue for seeing some of mother nature’s most breathtaking views. Whether you are climbing San Pedro, the tallest of the three volcanos or kayaking towards a quaint village, you will be awed by the sheer magnificence of this high plane tropical paradise.

We have created packages that honor the adventurous spirit. A week retreat can include kayaking, hiking up a volcano, walks throughout the highland trails, birdwatching, as well as cultural tours of nearby villages and colorful Guatemalan markets. Our guides are highly experienced and  fluent in English. They will show you the lake from an insider’s perspective, sharing intriguing lore about this natural and cultural paradise.

Consider exploring Mayan cultural traditions, food and craft markets throughout any of the 12 local pueblos as an active way to expand your world view. Additional activities include:

  • Ziplining
  • Hikes from Villa Sumaya
  • San Pedro Volcano climb
  • Pico del Cielo hike
