Lake Atitlan Village Tour Santa Catarina Palopó and San Antonio Palopó

Discover the way of life of the local people who live in the villages of Santa Catarina Palopó and San Antonio Palopó.

Join us as we explore and immerse ourselves in the beauty of Lake Atitlan’s countryside hiking along the picturesque roads winding its way along the shores through the timeless traditional villages of Santa Catarina Palopó and San Antonio Palopó. Both villages offer spectacular views of the lake along with rich and distinctive traditions of Mayan culture.

This tour includes visiting and meeting several women’s weaving cooperatives in Santa Catarina Palopó where you can watch the women weave colorful and vibrant textiles into table coverings, clothing, wall hangings, and accessories.

Just a few mile hike from Santa Catarina Palopó perched along the shores of Lake Atitlan is San Antonio Palopó where we will be visiting ceramic and pottery factories. We will tour the factories and watch the process of hand-painting the ceramics.

There will be lots of opportunities to stop and take photos of the beautiful surroundings as well as to purchase merchandise from the artisians.
