Lake Atitlan, a gorgeous, mystical body of water in the Guatemalan highlands about 90 miles from Guatemala City, is one of the great landmarks of Central America.
There are few better ways to take in the view than at Casa Palopo, a beautiful villa built on the hills surrounding Santa Catarina Palopó village, on the shores of Lake Atitlán and overlooking it's magnificent volcanoes; Atitlán, Tolimán and San Pedro. Activities in this wonderful place range from a relaxing massage in guest rooms, laying by the pool, horse back riding, visits to the Maya communities surrounding the lake or to the handicraft markets at Chichicastenango or Sololá. And for those who seek a little extra adrenaline rush a vibrant hike on the volcanoes or water-skiing in the fresh waters of the lake.
