Lago De Amatitlán - Other Activity Escuintla - Guatemala

Best seen, if seen at all, on a day trip from Guatemala City, Lago de Amatitlán will leave most tourists hoping for more. The lake is too polluted for swimming, but it is possible to navigate it on a pedal boat, or take the chairlift up to a pretty viewpoint on the hillside. The lake is easy to reach as buses pass the turnoff every five minutes traveling between Escuintla and the capital. The main road is about a fifteen minute walk from the lake. There are some small stores and lakeside comedores.
