Lake Atitlan ATV Tour

Lake Atitlan ATV Tour

star-5

We have brought fun and excitement and mixed it with the beauty and cultural experiences the lake has to offer. We depart from our office in Panajachel and head over to our first stop, which is San Antonio Palopo, on the local road that runs around the edge of the lake. Once in San Antonio, we park at the local pier and walk over to the local ceramic factory where we visit and learn about the process to make all these incredible pieces of art and also have the chance to visit a local chocolate factory. Once finished in San Antonio we head back towards Panajachel but we stop at the village of Santa Catarina Palopo. During this stop we are able to learn and see local weaving, blankets, and many of the local goods made at this village. We also visit the local cultural center where we can taste some local coffee and chocolate. Our last stop, we head over to Playa Blanca en Barrio Jucanya for some pictures right by the water.
