Wild Boat Ride on Lake Atitlan, Guatemala
It was a wild boat ride in a water taxi from Panajachel, Guatemala to our Airbnb on the shores of Lake Atitlan. What an exciting way to start off our adventure in the beautiful country of Guatemala. We were on the front of the boat and that was probably the worst position as we were thrown into the air each time. As bad as it sounds, it will always be one of our favorite memories from the trip.
Lake Atitlan in Guatemala is a must visit destination for so many reasons. Imagine relaxing in a hammock near the shore of a mile high lake that is surrounded by volcanoes, which is pretty amazing.

As wild as this boat ride was the first evening we arrived at Lake Atitlan, the next morning was so calm and completely different. The lake has a history of becoming very choppy in the evenings, but very calm in the morning. We had the most amazing morning ride around the lake visiting the villages and seeing the beautiful landscape. Be sure to watch our video short of our morning boat ride.
