Trip Planner: Central America / Guatemala / Western Highlands / Solola Department / Lake Atitlan / Lake Atitlan
Set against three volcanoes jutting up from its southern shore, Lake Atitlan represents the deepest body of water in Central America. The basin of the lake comes from volcanic origins, with its waters filling a large caldera. The villages and towns that surround the lake remain the preserve of the indigenous Maya people, and their authentically rustic atmosphere and charm complement the look and feel of the natural wonder. Swim, kayak, cliff-jump, or rent a boat for the day and glide across the water to visit the villages. Add Lake Atitlan and other attractions to your Santa Cruz La Laguna trip itinerary using our Santa Cruz La Laguna route planner.
