Nestled in the hills three hours of Guatemala City, Lake Atitlan is a mile-high wonder of startlingly blue, windswept waters, set against a backdrop of three 10,000-foot plus volcanoes: Tolimán, Atitlán and San Pedro, jabbing at the southern sky.
Author Aldous Huxley once called it the most beautiful lake in the world.
The three volcanoes on the shores of the lake are Atitlan, Toliman and San Pedro.
The little hill in front of Toliman, is called Cerro de Oro (Golden Hill), where, according to the legend, is where the Spanish Conquistadors buried their gold.
15 towns and villages are located around the lake, most of them inhabited by descendants of the Maya.
Take the hotel shuttle for custom trips to the world-famous Mayan market of Chichicastenango, every Thursday and Sunday, and the Solola Market every Tuesday and Friday.
