Cerro de Oro Volcano
This overnight trip to Lake Atitlán gives you a great mix of activities without wearing you out on any one of them. Biking, kayaking and hiking in, around and through the Lake Atitlan area - you get to experience the lake through a variety of speeds, angles and perspectives. Whether you are cruising on the crest of the caldera ridge, paddling the azure-blue waters of Atitlan, or hiking lakeside – you’ll surely enjoy the fantastic views (and food!), and rest easy in one of the most beautiful hotels in all of Central America.
This is an epic cross country ride, literally from the Antigua Valley to lake Atitlan. It can be done in 2 or 3 days depending on how much you want to stretch out the fun. The 2-day trip is a bit longer each day but overall more direct than the 3-day ride. We are able to take advantage of some extra single-track closer to Antigua on the day one of the three-day ride to stretch it out. It doesn't necessarily mean the 3-day ride is any easier, perhaps slightly shorter days.
However you decide to go, we head out from our hotel in Antigua, we make a loop up onto the ridges to the north of town, riding a mix of coffee planters trails and technical single-track. Both rides after day one pretty much follow the same track, old trade routes and foot paths that criss-cross the high plateaus. The ride drops through and climbs out of various ravines making its way across the mountainous topography towards Lake Atitlan. The final day has a larger paved climb up to the rim of the volcanic caldera of the lake. After lunch overlooking the lake, the ride drops in on some of Guates best trail down to Pana.
This is Guatemalan trekking at its best. The Mayan Highlands Trail is a 3-day trek following the ancient Mayan trade routes that once connected the Mayan civilizations of Lake Atitlan to those of Quetzaltenango. Much of this walk traverses above 3000 meters, providing phenomenal views of 15 different Guatemalan volcanoes. We will watch the sunset over Lake Atitlan, look out to the volcanoes on the Mexican Border, and enjoy our culturally rich hike from start to finish.
The visit to the highlands of Guatemala is one of the most interesting because you can visit lively and interesting as that of Santiago Atitlan and Chichicastenango across the famous lake of the same name markets. A walk-through the Atlantic showing semi-arid land and its various pineapple, grapes, banana and cashew, until the great Rio Dulce of Guatemala's natural reserves, which empties into the Caribbean Sea with more than 40 km long to reach the Garifuna community called Livingston with their signature dish "Tapado" (seafood broth with coconut milk).
One complete program that includes nature, living Maya Culture and archaeology covered in an easy pacing program of 10 days/9 nights.
