Luxury holidays in Lake Atitlán
When to go
Lake Atitlán stuns all year round, though it may be best to avoid the rainy season – from May to late September – if you’re hoping to admire its natural sunlit beauty.
PlanesFly to Guatemala’s main La Aurora Airport, where you can hop on a shuttle via Antigua for around five hours to reach Lake Atitlán’s surrounding town of Panajachel. Opt for a taxi or rental car if you’d rather avoid the shuttle’s Antigua detour; or kick things up a notch with a private 25-minute helicopter ride from the airport to the lake.
AutomobilesReach the lake by rental and once you’re there drive between the towns to discover the diverse beauty of southwestern Guatemala’s highlands. There’s no road between Tzununa and Panajachel, but you can still drive around the lake’s 75-mile parameter for impressive views and secluded shores.
