Full description
Enjoy a full-day of adventure activities on and around Lake Atitlan under the shadows of the Atitlan, Toliman, and San Pedro volcanoes.

A local guide will meet you at your hotel to take you by truck to a viewpoint called Mirador Mendez. From here, it’s a fun and easy walk through tropical forest to Santa Catarina Mayan Community, where you will get to experience the authentic culture of the Maya civilization first hand.

Enjoy lunch with a local family, and chat with them about their history and life in modern-day Guatemala. You will then be kitted out with a kayak to canoe for about 1-hour on the shimmering waters of Lake Atitlan. Soak up the stunning views as you kayak to Panajachel Beach for the end of your tour activities.
