Eden on Earth

*Sometime in June 11~18 2014 | From Richie of Guatemala

Lake Atitlán is a fairly large lake for the elevation in the Guatemala highlands. It is technically endorheic (lacking direct flow to the sea) but substantial seepage feeds two nearby rivers. Atitlan is recognized to be the deepest lake in Central America. "Atitlán" means "at the water".

Richie shared with me before that he would go hiking to this place. It was his first experience as a backpacker. Lake Atitlán, famous for its natural beauty and colorful Mayan villages, is located in the department of Sololá. There are many towns around the lake, and Richie wrote that he has been to San Pedro la Laguna and a few other towns. He traveled by boat, tuc-tuc (a small passenger vehicle that resembles a three-wheeled motorcycle with a metal or canvas frame), pick-up, cars, and of course by feet.
