Paddle and Hike Excursion

Trip Overview

$85.00 /person

Full-day trip begins and ends in Santa Cruz. This full day includes a kayak tour along the rugged north shore, and a hike back thru San Marcos, Tzununa,  El Jaibalito and Santa Cruz la Laguna. You will have many up close encounters with Mayan men who fish from hand hewn cayukas as they have for centuries.  You have the opportunity to cliff- jump into the crystal clear waters, or just enjoy a swim and sun. You'll pull into the Bay of San Marcos and gear up for the next part of your adventure. The north shore of Lake Atitlan has no road access, so you will be hiking along ancient paths that have been used by the Maya for centuries.  You will view villagers going about their daily life and see some of the most magnificent scenery in the world.  This rugged and remote section of Lake Atitlan has barely been touched by the outside world.  This hike takes you several hundred feet above the ever changing waters of Atitlan for breath taking views of the famous volcanos.
