Lake Atitlan Boat tour from Puerto Quetzal

1 review
Board your air-conditioned transportation for the approximately two and a half-hour guided drive to the highlands of Guatemala and Lake Atitlan. Located at over 4,000 feet above sea level, the lake is over 1,000 feet deep and is surrounded by three very impressive volcanoes. The lake itself was formed after the last eruption 85,000 years ago. Once at the lake board a boat to take you to explore the most indigenous village known as San Juan La Laguna. There meet local artisans famous for making hand made textiles. After lunch board your boat again to connect with your land transportation and head back to Port Quetzal.

We went for the sunrise with a guide. Magnificent sunrise! The guide made us coffee and gave us a little snack while we waited for the sun to come up.

Amazing you must do. Morning hike to catch sunrise. I am a solo female traveler. Use Henry only he’s amazing kind communicative and cost is comfortable. He’ll pick you by boat at your hotel. I was at villa Sumaya. Message him on whatsapp +502 5836-7172. Don’t bring jewelry or extra money.

I wanted to do a sunrise hike of La Nariz (Indian's Nose) in San Pedro in Lake Atitlan, Guatemala, but I'm so glad i went on this hike with Matt and didn't make the sunrise. I can't say enough about the hike or Matt. You can pay FAR less and get another guide just to take you on the hike. But know that it's private land so you'll be trespassing. With Matt you're in good hands knowing he's already arranged deals with the landowners so you won't have issues. That's just the tip of the reason to book with Matt. The view is incredible, but Matt's geology knowledge (he's a geologist) and love for it elevate this from a hike to a mind blowing, love for the area, what you forgot in school and more, experience. Then add in his knowledge of the people and the area, and providing you an understanding of the culture, the history, thus giving you a deeper appreciation to your visit, the hike, and your tour of Guatemala. You can hike and take pictures. Or you can learn, and fall in love with where you are, which is what Matt helps you accomplish. So when people ask you about your trip to Guatemala you have so much more to say. Bring water, sunscreen, and snacks. The hike was supposed to end at 1:30, but we got back at 2:30. worth every minute more spent learning from Matt. The hike is moderate (pretty easy for me), especially since you stop many times for lessons and views. Like most people, WhatsApp is the best way to reach them, Matt is no exception, compared to phone or email. Very responsive. Highly, Highly, Highly recommend booking Matt for any tours he offers, worth every penny. You won't be disappointed. Check out his website (he's a geologist not a web designer, so trust the review) GeoTravelGuatemala.com

Highly recommend doing this trip (worth the 3am rise!) but would NOT recommend doing it without a guided tour on your own. We read several blogs and were under the impression that this is doable DIY but found out we were wrong for two reasons: 1. It is nearly impossible to find the right trail once having got off the chicken bus without relying on a tour that happens to be there at the same time. 2. The people guarding the area and the viewing platforms (referred to as "banditos" in most blogs) are not accepting tourists who are unwilling to pay a Q50 entrance fee. We had only taken Q10 each with us as we were under the impression that this might do, but the locals have seen through this strategy and are making everyone hike back down who isnt going to pay the full amount. Whilst we did save a few dollars (we had to borrow the money from another tourist on a tour) ultimately this was not worth the hassle and arguing with the local guards. Paying a few dollars more and having a guide and direct shuttle transfer would definitely have been worth it.
