Amazing tour!!!

Pedro is a wonderful guide. He does his best to tailor a tour that fits your interest and makes sure not to miss a single opportunity to tell you about the people, the place, the food, and the sights you experience along the way. He was extremely personable and really became more of a friend than a guide. Anything you want to do, Pedro can organize it for you.

Thank you Pedro!

A wonderful Sunsetwalk!

We walked with Pedro Juan Solis from Sunta Cruz up the sunset mountain to see a beautiful Lake Atitlan Sunset. It was fantastic and Pedro is really a great guide, who explained us during the walk several fruits and plants and the live in village. We can highly recommend him and his Tours on Atitlan.

We just returned from Lake Atitlan. Pedro was our guide on this wonderful hike. There had been a tremendous amount of rain, therefore the trail was very muddy & the streams were more like small rivers making this hike much more difficult. Pedro not only led us very safely but told us many stories about the area. My husband wanted to practice his Spanish & Pedro very easily switched from Spanish to English as needed. He also speaks French. You can't go wrong using his services for any activity around the lake especially hiking.

Hiking the Volcano is a must on your visit to Lake Atitlan. Our guide, Pedro Solis, was absolutely amazing! He is an enthusiastic guide.
Safety for the group was paramount and his language skills and knowledge of Guatemala is impressive. We had a remarkable day thanks to Pedro!

After my first tour with Pedro from Santa Cruz to San Marcos i decided to make a second tour the day after because it was a unique experience with him. He knows so much about the area, the flowers, the animals... and he improved my spanish as well! Unforgetable was the breakfast at the top of the mountain!


Great experience with Pedro and his school!

I was recently in Panajachel, Guatemala. I took two days of Spanish lessons with Pedro, who did more than improve my Spanish! He makes sure that you get to know the culture and the people as well as the language. We went to the nearby Nature Preserve and then to a village overlooking Lake Atitlan. All along the way, we worked on my Spanish and enjoyed the beautiful surroundings. I have been to Panajachel a number of times, yet Pedro showed me things that I had not seen before. Pedro is a great teacher and person to be with. He works hard to make the most of your time with him. I would heartily recommend Pedro and his school for anyone wanting to learn not only Spanish but more of the remarkable people and places where it is spoken.

Pedro took care of everything, and we had a wonderful vacation!

I am just returning from a week at Lake Atitlan very grateful for having found Pedro Juan Solis over the internet and for having trusted him to organize our vacation. I went with 2 kids--ages 7 and 9--who are in a bilingual elementary school. We all studied spanish with teachers from Pedro's spanish school in the afternoons for about 3.5 hours/day. Obviously, as I was in a class of my own, I could not really observe my kids' classes, but my teacher was excellent. She listened to me when I told her what I most wanted to learn and she organized my classes accordingly. I believe my spanish improved 100% (although I was starting from a very low level).

In the mornings, Pedro organized outings for us, and it was wonderful seeing the sights with someone who knows the area so well. We jumped of a boulder into the lake at a spt we would never have found on our own; we went on birdwatching hikes that we customized for kids, so they were not nearly as slow, but we still saw 15 different species of birds in 2 hours time; we kayaked early in the morning for about 90 minutes to a restaurant with the most beautiful view imaginable (more than 350 steps up a bluff) and with great food, to boot. We visited towns and pedro explained a lot about the Mayan culture as we walked along. He used spanish and english, so we really got a second spanish lesson, as well. He taught the kids spanish songs as we kayaked. The kids loved him! I highly recommend working with Pedro to anyone planning a visit to lake Atitlan!

Aldous Huxley made that pronouncement but I concur. Having Pedro Solis of Adventure Atitlan as your guide is guaranteed to maximize your enjoyment of this magical place. From arranging transportation to Atitlan, lodging on the lake, to hiking or boating, swimming in hot springs, going to local markets- Pedro takes care of it. He is trustworthy and honest, fluent in English, Spanish and the local languages spoken around the lake. Relax and take in the experiences- Adventure Atitlan will handle the logistics and details...


Great guide/translator

Pedro, the owner of Adventure Atitlan, is an amazing, friendly, professional tranlator and guide. He speaks the local language, which was great help to me for my documentary film on shamanism. Highly recomended!!!

My wife and I visited Lake Atitlan in Nov/Dec 2009 and each day we had Spanish lessons and tours arranged by Pedro. My wife felt that her Spanish teacher was the best she has had. I had my Spanish lesson with Pedro, and found him very knowledgeable and accommodating for whatever focus I desired. Each afternoon he arranged tours which were all excellent. He is from that area, knows the people and traditions and has plenty of excellent advice. If we return we would be sure to make contact with Pedro once again.

About Lake Atitlan

Lake Atitlán (Lago de Atitlán) is a large endorheic lake (one that does not flow to the sea) in the Guatemalan Highlands. While Atitlan is recognized to be the deepest lake in Central America, its bottom has not been completely sounded. Estimates of its maximum depth range up to 340 meters. The lake is shaped by deep escarpments which surround it and by three volcanos on its southern flank. Lake Atitlan is further characterized by towns and villages of the Maya people.

The lake is volcanic in origin, filling an enormous caldera formed in an eruption 84,000 years ago. It is renowned as one of the most beautiful lakes in the world, and Aldous Huxley famously wrote of it: "Lake Como, it seems to me, touches on the limit of permissibly picturesque, but Atitlán is Como with additional embellishments of several immense volcanoes. It really is too much of a good thing."
