“Lake Como, it seems to me, touches on the limit of permissibly picturesque, but Atitlán is Como with additional embellishments of several immense volcanoes. It really is too much of a good thing” (Aldous Huxley)
The Lake Atitlán is the second largest lake in Guatemala. Located about 1.5 km above sea level, the lake was once created by an explosion of a volcano some 84,000 years ago.
Today, it is the livelihood of many residents around the lake, because he is not only rich in fish, but also an important tourist magnet at the same time. Three magnets and small villages spread around the lake.
Places around the lake:
San Pedro La Laguna
San Marcos La Laguna
Cerro de Oro
Santa Catarina Palopo
