Be prepared to pay for many of the more exciting activities offer by the reserve such as canopy, team building, and some other ones. If you simply want to hike the nature trail, then it is less expensive.
The nature trail was a hike through the jungle there and some hanging bridges that crossed cascades, springs and trees. There were various overlooks that let you see part of the lake. Some of the last legs of the trail needed to have some maintenance, we thought. If you are lucky you get to see some spider monkeys in their natural habitat.
There is also a butterfly compound where you can see different types of butterflies. You can also hike to the lake shore. I do not recommend this hike, the trails are not maintained at all and there is basically no shore, since the lake has outgrown the beach that once was. Not worth the 30 minute hike.
If this is your first time in Lake Atitlan, I would recommend visiting. If you like Canopy, I would recommend you doing it. It looked like a lot of fun, we didn't do it, but probably will next time.
