Inspirock Rating:
4.7/5 based on 460 reviews on the web
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. It couldn't be easier to arrange your visit to Lake Atitlan and many more Panajachel attractions: make an itinerary online using Inspirock's Panajachel trip itinerary builder.
