Panajachel Lake Atitlan Walking Tour

Panajachel Lake Atitlan Walking Tour, are you feeling adventurous? Let us open the door into the Mayan culture of Lake Atitlan Guatemala. Guatemala is a country of exceptional beauty, rich traditions and culture.

Panajachel is located in the highlands of Guatemalan and provides breathtaking views of stunning and awe-inspiring mountains and volcanoes that adorn the most beautiful lake in the world. It also boasts a lively and colorful outdoor market, Mayan folklore and charm, and rich traditions—a trip to Lake Atitlan Guatemala is one big cultural experience.

Panajachel Lake Atitlan Walking Tour

Guatemala is unique in that more than half its population is of Mayan Indian origin.

Regardless of where you are from, an understanding of Mayan culture requires an insight into the history and culture of its indigenous people. And with the largest Mayan population in Central America, Lake Atitlan Guatemala is the perfect place to start.

Join our cultural walking tour led by an indigenous guide, taking in everything from visiting the local indoor/outdoor market to learning about the Mayan folklore that can be seen in local textiles and in the traditional hand-woven clothing, as well as leaning about the rich history of this area.

We will also be visiting Casa Cakchiquel which was built in 1948 and served as one of the first hotels on the lake. Casa Cakchiquel features an incredibly interesting museum and gallery that includes over 3,000 photographs from 1860 – 1970.

This Panajachel Lake Atitlan Walking Tour is not only a walking adventure but also an opportunity to experience Guatemala—its people, the history, the landscape, the food, and the different ways of life.
