On the Shores of Atitlán

7 Day Guatemala Itinerary

We were looking to celebrate my partner’s 50th birthday. Lake Atitlán blew our minds. It is one of the most beautiful places we've seen.

A serene birthday by Lake Atitlán…

We were looking forward to celebrating my partner’s 50th birthday on this trip. We enjoy sipping cocktails in the sun by the pool or on the beach, and exploring new cities, cuisine, and shopping. We were looking for a new destination that would allow us to see a new place, with time to relax, as well as easy side excursions to things like volcanos, or zip lining.

The Hotel Atitlán, the garden, and its setting was absolutely fantastic, and exactly what we were looking for. It's one of the most beautiful places we’ve seen. We were right along the shores of Lake Atitlán and the room was spacious and comfortable. Staff was very nice, especially Juan Carlos at the bar.

The local communities were incredible…

We booked a boat tour that took us to the surrounding villages by Lake Atitlan. It was a great experience to see the local sights and communities. Their handicrafts were amazing, especially the textiles and patterns.

Lovely nights in Antigua…

We stayed in Antigua for three nights to fully enjoy the charming town's vibes and the surrounding destinations. The hike up to Pacaya Volcano was steep but the view was extremely rewarding.
