A huge body of deep blue water that stretches into the distance and takes at least half an hour to cross by motorboat, Lake Atitlan has an amazing setting, ringed by imposing volcanoes. Lake Atitlan holidays are fabulous for hiking, mountain biking and kayaking, or just relaxing in one of the elegant hotels around the lake's shoreline, and the region also has a strong spiritual feel, too. To appreciate Guatemala's colourful indigenous population, take a boat trip to visit the villages that hug the lakeshore, such as Santiago, Santa Catarina and San Antonio. Mayan customs and beliefs are strongly adhered to in these tiny remote communities,
whose residents proudly wear traditional dress that distinguishes each town from the next.
