One of the interesting things about Lake Atitlan is that the water is very calm in the mornings. Our water taxi ride was perfect. Now, it was a bit different when we arrived the first evening. The cool winds from the volcanoes move down the mountains and cause some wind and waves in the evenings. Check out our short where we bounced and bounced on our way from Panajachel to our airbnb.
