Lake Atitlan

Lake Atitlan, a large volcanic lake, provides the setting for a wealth of interesting Mayan towns and villages. Surrounded by imposing and scenic mountains, the lake forms part of a sprawling national park, rich in wildlife and cultural attractions. The main towns and villages range from touristy gateways to authentic realms of tradition and culture, with charming local markets, rustic architecture, and a laid-back feel. Many of the towns can only be reached by boat, with trips on the lake high on most visitors' Lake Atitlan itineraries. Lake Atitlan is in Solola Department.
