We are home to Ati Divers, proud to be Atitlan’s only dive shop since 1996. We offer PADI courses from beginner (Open Water) all the way through Divemaster, and especially popular is our Altitude Specialty Course which only takes a day to complete. If you’re already certified, let us take you on a fun dive where you’ll see massive volcanic rock formations, sunken trees, and loads of lake fish. When you plunge your hands into hot volcanic mud at the “Hot Spots” you’ll know you’re diving someplace very different. More info
We offer yoga classes on our patio overlooking the lake and volcanoes. A one-and-a-half hour class with our fantastic instructor is only $5 per person (min 3 pax). What a wonderful way to start your day at the lake. All levels are welcome, and even if you have never tried yoga before this is a great way to start.
Rent a kayak for just $7 an hour. Paddle to neighboring villages and enjoy the serenity of the journey. Best in the morning to avoid the waves!
Learn to backstrap weave with a local indigenous family from the village of Santa Cruz. A unique opportunity to immerse yourself in the local culture and see how they live. Leave with a souvenir and memories of a beautiful experience.
Enjoy a relaxing massage from our certified therapist. Haircuts, waxing, facials and other treatments are available. Pamper yourself!
Why sit in a classroom when you can study Spanish lakeside with volcano views?! We offer one-on-one classes with friendly qualified instructors. A weekly package costs $160 including 7 nights dorm accommodation (room upgrade available), 6 days of Q75 food allowance in our restaurant, and 20 hours of one-on-one Spanish classes. Not ready to commit to a week? Hourly classes are available for Q40 (just over $5!).
There are some world-class hikes to be had around the Lake Atitlan basin. We can hook you up with local guides and point you in the right direction. Coffee finca tours, mountain biking, birdwatching, kayak tours and anything you can think of can be organized with local bilingual guides. We recommend Kayak Guatemala and Tours Atitlan both of which are located right here in Santa Cruz.
