Memories of Monterrico thumbnail

Close your eyes and picture a beautiful beach. A hundred people will have a hundred different visions of exactly what that paradise would look like.

Diving Atitlan

I might have taken a laid back approach to my week in Lake Atitlán, but there are plenty adventure opportunities on hand for those who want to be a bit more active while visiting this high altitude Guatemalan highlight — paragliding off a volcano, hiking up a volcano, or diving below a volcano all come to…
