Magical Sunsets of Lake Atitlán

5 Day Guatemala Itinerary

This is our first trip to Guatemala. We started from Antigua, and then fell in love with Lake Atitlan, the culture, and the people!

Why this is a trip we’ll remember for always...

Our trip to Guatemala was an amazing experience. We fell in love with Lake Atitlan, the culture, and people! Visiting the art galleries and women's textile cooperative in San Juan was a unique experience. The blend between Mayan and Catholic culture in Santiago is a must-see. Our tour guide, Leonel, was excellent. His knowledge, expertise, and passion for the community made a huge difference in the experience that we had!

The charms of Lake Atitlan...

There are a lot of things you can do around Lake Atitlan. The hike at San Pedro Volcano was one of the best hikes I've ever done. It goes through coffee plantations, fields, and finally into the forest area of the national park. The views are stunning and the hike is totally worth it. Our guide really wowed us with his expertise in Ecology.

Completely tailored to our taste...

Everything was very personalized to our interests. I would recommend Anywhere and Leonel to anyone traveling to Guatemala. What an unforgettable experience!
