GUATEMALA NATURE VACATION
Natural attractions are what make Guatemala so profoundly unforgettable. Volcanoes, lakes, and rainforests comprise some of our favorite destinations. Each spot attracts different groups of travelers, so tells about your vacation vibe so we can point you in the right direction.
PICK YOUR STYLE
Conquer a volcano on a scenic hike — the peak of Chicabal Volcano has a lake in its crater, and you can see Lake Atitlán from the summit of the San Pedro Volcano. For a more relaxed adventure, try a birdwatching or a horseback riding tour. Go swimming at the unusual and remote Siete Altares — this series of green pools appears in a natural limestone bridge.
LAKES OF GUATEMALA
Take a kayaking tour on the placid waters of Lake Atitlán — you’ll be surrounded by looming volcanoes and Maya villages. Visit San Marcos La Laguna for swimming and kayaking in a New Age atmosphere. Lake Petén Itzá has several Maya ruins near its shore, including Tayazal. Visit the Bocas del Polochic Wildlife Preserve on the western end of Lake Izabal to see Guatemalan wetlands.
PLACES TO STAY
Guatemala hotels are often set in beautiful areas that give you easy access to the outdoors. You can stay at rainforest ecolodges, hotels on coffee plantations, or bungalows.
