Travel across the lake by boat and visit the traditional village of Santiago Atitlan with its curious shrine to Maximon; and Santa Catarina where the locals still wear beautifully intricate embroidered clothing. This can be combined with a visit to Sololá market to make it a full day trip.
There are various footpaths that link the colourful and traditional villages dotted around the edge of the lake. A guided walk along these trails offers a great insight into the local way of life.
For those who seek something a little different, why not rent a kayak and make your own way around the lake. try not to fall in though as the water is very cold!!
