My husband and I signed up for the 7 day multisport package with Lee Beal. Lee and Elaine were the perfect hosts. We stayed at their casita where we had privacy, great food, and a perfect view of the lake. Lee is a great guide, cultural attache, and fixer. He sized us up the first day and customized the tour to maximize our enjoyment. In keeping with our motto of "most beauty for the least effort" - we had a great time hiking DOWN the mayan trails instead of up. We got to stop and look at flowers and birds. We enjoyed kayaking and boating around to the small villages, and hiked some of the trails around the lake. Lee has great stories about the area and the people. He obviously loves his home at Lake Atitlan and enjoys introducing visitors to his community. We met the people of the the small villages, the markets, and the schools. We shopped the textiles and watched weavers. We ate local and we ate well. We even had gourmet cheese and chocolate ice cream. We were very well cared for as Lee handled everything from when we stepped off the plane at Guatemala City til we went home. It was like vacationing with a favorite cousin.
we are looking forward to returning next year!
