I've got really mixed feelings about Lake Atitlan. One one hand, it is a truly amazing, majestic experience that creates a feeling of awe. The views of the volcanoes are truly incredible and I took some amazing photographs. On the other hand, you have to...More

Lago Atitlan is beautiful with plenty to see and do. We timed our visit for Friday markets and the one in Solola was the best. I wish we had more time so we could trek at least one volcano. Staying in Panajachel was OK, bit...More

Lake Atitlan might be the most beautiful place I've ever been to. If you're in Guatemala you must visit. It will be worth it once you're on the water.

Some people say it is just a lake. But don't forget that it is the biggest high lake. With the vulcanoes around it it makes for a spectacular view. Take the boat to all the little towns around it to get a good look at...More

When the sun was out, there were some good views of the three volcanoes in the area. Most hills/mountains are covered with green jungle that looked the same no matter which way one looked. The small villages around the lake do not take up much...More

The famous German explorer Alexander Von Humboldt declared Lake Atitlan to be "the most beautiful lake in the world" and after visiting this volcanic lake in the Guatemalan highlands I would certainly agree! Of course there are many other volcanic lakes that could possibly deserve...More
