Lake Atitlan and The Highland Region of Guatemala

Ultimate high for hopeless romantics and adventurers


Located in the western part of Guatemala, this mountainous region is known for its indigenous traditions, folklore and the resplendent Lake Atitlan. After the Maya abandoned the larger cities of the Petén region, they migrated south and up to the template climates of the highlands. The fertile soils of these winding mountains, magical volcanoes and beautiful valleys, became the land of the Cack'chiquel, Quek'chi, Mam and Tzutujil, ethnic Mayan groups whose traditional indigenous culture continues to reign and develop.
