Lake Atitlan Village Tour

Santiago Atitlán is a city in Guatemala on Lake Atitlán near Panajachel. Famous as the largest indigenous population of Tzutujile Mayans.

Recommended destinations are the Catholic church, which structure dates back to as far as 1571, and contains three plaques giving an overview of its history.

The market street, running from the docks to the church, offers beautiful woven stuff, volcanic jade carvings and dubiously ancient Tz’utujil pieces allegedly unearthed from the grounds around.

The neighborhood house where the syncretized deity Maximón resides for the current year is also a must.

Lanchas are boats that provide water taxi service between the various villages that dot the shoreline of the Lake.  The boat dock is located at the end of Calle Rancho Grande and the lanchas leave from the dock every 30 minutes.

Lake Atitlan Village Tour is a gift that invites us to step away from that frantic life and immerse ourselves in a culture that lives in harmony with the natural rhythms of the Mayan Culture. The Tour takes one through the villages of Lake Atitlan in a day, without stress or pressures.

There are three majestic volcanoes— Toliman, San Pedro and Atitlan—overlooking what is considered one of the most beautiful lakes in the world— Lake Atitlan. Dotted along its shoreline are more than a dozen towns and villages, most of which have retained their Mayan character to this day.

Maya culture is prevalent around the lake where traditions, customs, and culture, along with the traditional clothing (traje) has been retained. Each indigenous Mayan village has its own uniqueness and its own signature style of clothing that sets it apart from the others.

Lake Atitlan Village Tour is one of our most popular tours.

San Juan La Laguna is notably less popular among ex-pats, as a local law prohibits outsiders from purchasing land within the municipality.

Due to this, visitors to the town can enjoy a more “authentic” experience among the indigenous Tz’utujil population.

The town is famous for Art, which adorns the walls of buildings, Culture Mayan Textiles weavers, Coffee, Leather products, and honey.

The weaving in San Juan La Laguna is also different than the weaving, fabrics, and yarns found throughout Guatemala.

In San Juan, the weavers use natural dyeing techniques that have been passed down through the generation. Their natural dyeing techniques include using pepper, achiote, coconut shells, tree bark, and many other natural products.
