Lake Atitlan holidays

Lying high among the volcanoes of Guatemala, Lake Atitlan is famous for its natural beauty and its colourful Mayan villages. The lake is formed from the collapsed caldera of a now extinct volcano and is 18km by 12km, with a depth of around 320 metres. The main town is Panajachel, where there is a good selection of restaurants and bars as well as stalls selling native textiles and handicrafts.
