San Juan La Laguna: This tiny pueblito is home to cooperatives that sell traditional textiles, paintings, weavings and other Guatemalan goodies that serve as great souvenirs. Being one of the less-visited towns around the lake, San Juan offers a more authentic, Guatemalan experience than that of nearby San Pedro or Panajachel.

Santiago Atitlán: is famous for the neighborhood house where the syncretized deity Maximón resides for the current year. Santiago Atitlan is home of the Cojolya Weaving Center and Museum, founded by the Cojolya Association of Maya Women Weavers. The museum shows the history, tradition, and process of backstrap-loom weaving, and the evolution of the traditional costume of the Tzutujil, and the indigenous people of Santiago Atitlán. San Juan la Laguna hosts the origins of cotton and the museum offers a unique insight into the process of thread dying and the transformation from cotton to distinct wearables.

Shore Excursion - Enchanting Lake Atitlán

This volcanic crater lake is the deepest lake in Central America, and renowned as one of the most beautiful lakes in the world. Multiple Mayan archeological sites have been discovered at the lake; the latest Mayan “underwater city” (located 55 feet below the lake’s surface) discovered, dates back to the late pre-classic period.
