Great guide. Loved how flexible they are in order to make you happy and enjoy the day. We wanted to do a Kayak tour, but also tour of the towns around the lake and they gave us exactly that option, which isn't part of their standard services. Got there in the morning and we wanted to try stand up paddle boards, so they let us try it for half an hour around the lake before getting in the kayaks and paddling to our first destination. Mario, our great guide, was always helpful, patient and open to accommodate our wishes. Definitely recommend talking with Elementos and getting tours with them!!

Kayaking on Lake Atitlan with Marcelino was so fun! He picked me up at the hotel and we took the community boat to the Adventure Center. Once there, we collected nice kayaks and life jackets for our 90 minute kayak around the lake. Along the way, I learned quite a bit about the Atitlan lake region. I'd highly recommend this activity.

On another day, my daughter and I hiked for the morning with Marce. They continued after dropping me off at the community boat. Another great experience.

We had fun kayaking along the shore of Lake Atitlan and enjoyed a stop to jump off the cliff. The hike was challenging enough and offered beautiful views and interesting visits to villages along the way. Our guide, Alex, was awesome. He was both knowledgeable and fun.

The trip was nice, the kayaks was the best part the hiking was nice but way too long for what it was it was too repetitive. The guide was awesome! So yeah its a good adventure but maybe don't take the full day trip. And i forgot to mention the kayak was good quality.

Our entire day was amazing! The minivan shuttle picked us up early from the hotel in Antigua for the drive to Panajachel. The drive was a bit over two hours, but there was so much to see that it passed pretty quickly. Alex, our guide, met us at the travel office, showed us a small restaurant for a bite to eat, and then we headed to the shuttle boat which took us to the Los Elementos office to start the kayak portion of the trip. Finishing the kayaking, we ate lunch while enjoying the views of the lake. Then we began our hike back through the three small villages. As stated in a review above, it is a hilly 8 mile walk, sometimes on small roads and sometimes through the brush, but it was absolutely gorgeous and I would not have wanted to miss it. My daughter and I are in reasonable shape and although we were tired by the end, we were not exhausted. Alex was the best guide. He had stories to tell us about the surrounding areas which were very interesting and informative. He let us know that if, at any moment, we wanted to change the plan (for example, take the shuttle boat back early, if we were tired, or stop to do more shopping), everything was very flexible. This trip exceeded all my expectations, we enjoyed it so much. Thank you Elementos and especially, thank you, Alex.

We were scheduled for a kayak tour but our car broke down. Our brakes went out. Make sure you go to Panajachel not Santa Cruz. Waze says there is a road to Santa Cruz, but it’s not really a road. Someone from Los Elementos will meet you in Panajachel and take you by boat to the start of your adventure. Alex was fabulous! He called a mechanic and stayed with us all day until we could safely drive our car back to Guatemala City. I will always use Los Elementos for all my lake Atitlan adventures!

My friend and I booked this in December and had an amazing time! We had the day to ourselves with our guide Samuel. Kayaking was a blast, it was the perfect way to experience the lake outside of the crowded taxies. We went for the full day; kayaked in the morning, stopped for an awesome lunch at a small restaurant then hiked along the hillside back to Los Elementos. The hike was absolutely beautiful, and we walked through three of the less touristy villages. Heads up, the hike is pretty vigorous and was around 8 miles, but absolutely worth it for the views and insight from Samuel. This was my favorite day by far during my trip to Guatemala, I would strongly recommend this tour and getting off the beaten path for a bit while at Atitlan.

We had a great time with Lee and his team over Christmas. We we're picked up by private shuttle in Antigua, made our way to Lake Atitlan via a great stop for breakfast.
We had 5 in our group including my 3 sons aged 18-23.

It was a fabulous day of kayaking, hiking and cliff jumping. Alex our guide was fantastic. He's a local, so he know's all of the great spots to stop and provided us with an amazing day. Highly recommend !
