Los Elementos Adventure Center

Kayaking in Santa Cruz La Laguna

This outfit offers kayaks and paddleboards to explore the lake, ranging from rental by the hour to fully supported and guided multiday kayak and hiking tours around Atitlán. Its two-day paddle-and-hike tour includes a visit to Santa Catarina Palopó, followed by kayaking along the lake's northern shore and hiking along the old Maya trail through Tzununá and Jaibalito.

Its base is a 10-minute walk west of Santa Cruz along the lakeside track.
