Activities with (and without) kids on Lake Atitlan


We are very excited to be heading to Guatemala this Saturday. We have one week on the Lake, based in Santa Catarina Palopo. I was wondering if anyone had suggestions about activities and guides. My husband and I would like to hike up Volcan San Pedro-- it sounds like we should leave our kids- 7, 10 and and a very lethargic 12- back at the house with my parents (we do plan on dragging them up Pacaya). We are also interested in a boat tour around the Lake- hopefully we can pay our respects to Maximón in Santiago and see a few more villages. We had also thought about the nature reserve and ziplining. Are there any hikes/activities suitable for kids that I've overlooked? Good experiences horseback riding, etc.?

Thanks very much!

Kind regards,
