Full day includes a kayak tour and a hike back thru Mayan villages


Full-day trip begins and ends in Antigua. Explore Lake Atitlan with me for a unique and off the beaten trail experience. Includes a motor boat ride, a kayak tour along the rugged north shore, and a hike back thru San Marcos, Tzununa, El Jaibalito and Santa Cruz la Laguna.

Itinerary

Our driver will meet you at centrally located hotels or holiday rentals in Antigua. The preferred departure time is 5:30am. The early departure allows maximum time to enjoy your day and avoids most of the traffic. We recommend departing no later than 8:00am. Travel time is a minimum 2 1/2 hours each way.
Your Water Sports adventure will begin as soon as you exit the vehicle at Lake Atitlan. Gear up for kayak and swimming. Paddle for 1 1/2 - 2 hours, with an optional break in the middle for a swim and cliff jump (if you dare!!)
Mid-day your guide will recommend a restaurant appropriate to your tastes, or you can pack a sack lunch for a pic-nic.
After your lunch break, hike 3 hours along the Mayan foot trails for a true off-the-beaten-path experience. End your hike at our Adventure Center where you started, and travel by boat back to the vehicle.
Return to Antigua in the late afternoon leaving Lake Atitlan between 4:00 - 5:00pm.
