Owner description: Measuring 130 square kilometeres and 300 meters deep, Lake Atitlan is considered to be the largest lake in Central America. The lake is situated in a caldera that was formed during a massive eruption thousands of years ago. Surrounding the lake are three volcanoes: San Pedro, Atitlan, And Toliman. We organize hikes and treks to these volcanoes, and also to locations around Antigua, Quetzaltenango, and from Lake Atitlan to Quetzaltenango. We trek and hike through rural areas in order to experience the beautiful landscape, rivers, corn plantations, and local life. We offer both private and collective tours around the lake, as well as bicycle tours, kayak trips, and horse-back rides. Welcome to Lake Atitlan!Our guides are tri-lingual (Mayan Cakchiquel-Spanish-English), and are members of the local community. We hope you enjoy your stay, and we encourage you to explore the natural environment and cultural heritage of this beautiful place.

Humberto probably contributed more to the success of our Guatemala vacation than any other person. His command of English, his numerous contacts & knowledge of the area made the two days we spent with him the highlight of our trip. His pleasant demeanor was infectious. He loves what he does & is proud of his culture. He can arrange private tours, private transport & shared shuttles. He was always on time as as was his arranged transport from Antigua to Panajachel & Panajachel to Guatemala City. After we arrived at Hotel Atitlan, he met us at the appropriate time & surprised us by chartering a private boat which left right from our hotel (it was supposed to be a group tour) to visit the towns of San Juan La Laguna, San Pedro La Laguna & Santiago Atiltlan. What a joy it was to have our own guide to go at our own pace. At San Juan La Laguna we had private presentation at a weaving co-op. The next day (Sunday) he drove us to the market at Chichicastenango which was incredible. You can email him at info@lagoaventura.com. He may ask for a cash payment made to him at Western Union, but rest assured he is very trustworthy & will email you back vouchers than you can print yourself.

I spent one day near Lake Atitlan and was happy to have chosen Lago Aventura tours and had Humberto Samalaj as my guide. Humberto was very well informed and pleasant to spend a day with. I highly recommend him to anyone visiting the area who would like to know about the town from a local.
