Your day begins in Panajachel, where you will board a motor boat and depart for the rugged north shore and the popular San Marcos Village.
You will have time to explore the village before hiking on to the remote villages of Tzununa and Jaibalito, ending in Santa Cruz.
The north shore of Lake Atitlan has no true road access, so you’ll be hiking along ancient paths that have been used by the Kachekel Maya for centuries. See villagers going about their daily life, encounter farmers tending their corn and coffee fields, and see some of the most magnificent scenery in the world.
This rugged and remote section of Lake Atitlan has barely been touched by the outside world. This hike takes you several hundred feet above the ever-changing waters of Atitlan for breathtaking views of the famous volcanoes. Then descend into the Pumpatin Canyon for a nature walk along the banks of the river.
You experience 2 different ecosystems as you walk from the upper lake shore into the narrow canyon.
Enjoy some free time for a picnic lunch (not included) on the shore of the lake, and take a swim if you desire.
Your day will end boarding your boat that will take you back to Panajachel.
