On arrival at La Aurora International Airport, after clearing customs and immigration, you will be met and transferred to the Westin Camino Real for overnight. With four million inhabitants, Guatemala City is the most modern and cosmopolitan in Central America. Vibrant and fast paced, Guatemala City (or Guate as the locals called it) is a blend between the old and the new with a Latin charm.
On the morning of day 2 rest up from your travels and enjoy breakfast at the hotel before your noon transfer to Lake Atitlan. If time allows we can arrange (at additional cost) a museum visit in Guatemala City. You will be met at your hotel and transferred to the helicopter hangar at the airport for your exciting and scenic helicopter transfer to Lake Atitlan, located 144 km west of Guatemala City.
With three stunning volcanoes rising above its emerald surface, Lake Atitlan is characterized by its natural beauty surrounded by gorgeous views of the volcanoes and traditional indigenous Maya villages. The famous writer Aldous Huxley considered it “the most beautiful lake in the world.”
Soak up the stunning views and the swimming pool, or perhaps have a spa treatment (additional cost) at your luxury hotel, Casa Palopo, this afternoon before dinner, which can be served in your room or enjoyed at the hotel’s restaurant.
