Santiago Atitlán

Called “the house of birds” in the Tzutujil Mayan language, Santiago is known for its wide variety of birds that can be found singing in the trees and embodied into the traditional clothes women use and weave by hand.

Santiago is also famous for its artistic wood carvings. The surrounding landscape is known for its large coffee plantations.

The people of Santiago Atitlán have much to offer, with their rich history and culture. They are one of the largest indigenous cultures within Central America. Santiago Atitlán also has one of the oldest Catholic churches in the country. It is also home to the holy Maximón, to which people come to visit from different places, bringing him gifts in gratitude for the miracles he performs.

Founded in 1547. It is one of the oldest churches in Guatemala.

In December 1990, Santiago was among the first towns of Guatemala to declare its independence from Guatemala´s army during the Civil War. This war resulted in many massacres and devastated many parts of Guatemala.

From Tiosh Abaj you can easily walk to the public pier, the market and the main street, where the craft vendors, banks, ATM, and other tourist attractions are located.

Lake Atitlán

Lake Atitlán is of volcanic origin, situated 140 km (90 miles) from Guatemala City in the mountainous state of Sololá, deep in the highlands of Guatemala. Aldous Huxley, a famous British writer, once called Lake Atitlan "the most beautiful lake in the world" and those that experience the Lake agree.

Lake Atitlan is located about 5000 feet above sea level, with a depth of 1500 feet and covers an area of 50 square miles. It is the deepest lake in Central America. The lake water is usually crystal clear and has a vivid blue color. The colors change when the light changes.

The lake is set against a dramatic backdrop of three spectacular 10,000-foot volcanoes - Tolimán, Atitlán and San Pedro. Not only is Lake Atitlán picturesque, but also has twelve indigenous villages which are rich in Mayan culture. These villages still wear their traditional clothes, hand-woven in bright colors. Its population is also famous for its handicrafts and textiles that can be admired for their designs and colors which distinguish the people from one village to another.
