Lake Atitlan Helicopter Tour

Atitlan Copters

Lake Atitlan

The blast of colors, incredible scenery, Mayan living culture, and volcanoes give existence to this enchanting destination, fascinating to everybody that visits us.

The mix of native beliefs and Catholicism has revealed daily ethnos living in Atitlan’s surroundings, northwest of the Kaqchikel and southeast of the Tz’utujil.

Roughly 85.000 years the region of Atitlan’s lake experienced a powerful and brutal cataclysm creating a large crater.

San Pedro’s, Toliman’s, and Atitlan’s volcanoes formed 60.000 years after, providing origin to Atitlan’s lake.

Some activities can be practiced within this privileged location, like Nature hikes, birding, aquatic activities, and cultural immersion.
