Lake Atitlan

Surrounded by Volcanoes, Lake Atitlan is the most enchanting lake in Guatemala. Small Mayan villages, each with its own personality and own language, surround the lake. The Indigeneous women all wear their traditional hand woven fabrics "huipiles". There is also a variety of local hotels, many of which look out over the lake. A highlight of the area is Santiago de Atitlán and its colourful traditional market.
