Writer Aldous Huxley labeled this site "the world's most beautiful lake." Much of the feedback testifies the same: its unbelievable beauty evokes the spiritual potential of its visitors. Whereas many insensitive realists might skeptically say "What a sentiment!" Wait to see it for yourself before you judge—it touches even the most indifferent personalities. ​Atitlán is a crater lake that emerged thousands of years ago, and today it lies in a cozy corner encircled by towering volcanoes. The lake and its surrounding natural attractions are ​best explored during the dry season between November and May.
