Santa Cruz La Laguna - excursions and day trips

Located on the shores of the beautiful Lake Atitlan, Santa Cruz La Laguna is a small town with many adventures to offer. From water sports to hiking to massages, there is something for everyone. Some of the best ways to experience the area are to take excursions and day trips.

You can take a boat to visit the area. Most people take the public "lancha" from the Tzanjuyu docks in Panajachel. Alternatively, you can take a tour with a local tour company. You will have a chance to see some of the most famous spots in the area. Some of the places you will visit include the Pico Mirador del Ingles and Santo Domingo Church. You will also have the chance to see the tomb of a famous Corsair named Amaro Pargo.

You can also go on a snorkeling excursion. You will get the chance to swim in the bay, and enjoy cliff jumping and over-water rock climbing. You will also get to enjoy a meal prepared by a chef on site. Some of the other things you can do in the area include scuba diving and yoga classes. You can even enjoy a full body massage.

You can take a hike to San Marcos. The trail is about three hours one way, and you can choose to make the trip with a local guide or on your own. The views from the hike are spectacular. You will be able to see several volcanoes, including Toliman, and you will have the chance to explore the scenic valley.

Another day trip you can take includes a full day of kayaking. You will have the chance to kayak along the rugged north shore of the lake, and then you will visit a sacred Mayan site. You will also have the opportunity to view some of the underwater volcanic formations.

During the rainy season, you will need to wear shoes that can handle the slippery mud. If you would like to rent a kayak from the Los Elementos Adventure Center, they can help you arrange that. They also offer a number of tours for all skill levels. If you are looking for a fun, exciting experience, they can even arrange a guided rock climb or canyon climb. They can also help you learn the basics of the sport at their base camp. If you are interested in a longer, more challenging tour, they can also arrange top-rope climbs.

You can also take a hike to Jaibalito. This small lakeside town has a quiet, tranquil atmosphere. There are a few restaurants that serve excellent food, and you will be able to walk through the beautiful valley and cliffs. You can also visit the Ermita de Nuestra Senora del Carmen, the visitor center for the Pico Mirador del Ingles.

You can also take a day trip to the former capital of the island, La Laguna. You will have the chance to walk around the historic town, as well as visit churches with interesting structures. The city is a UNESCO World Heritage site.

Do I have to give my guide a tip?
No. It is not required and not expected of you to tip your guide. However, if one is presented, the guide might accept a gratuity. To guarantee that they are fairly compensated for their time, each guide sets the price of their tours. They do not depend on gratuities from tours as a result. If you want to support your guide, write a review of your tour.
What happens once I make a reservation?
After making the payment, you should wait at least 24 hours prior to the travel date for your Local Expert to confirm the requested date. If your reservation is approved, a confirmation email will be sent to your registered email address with the reservation's specifics and the Local Expert's direct contact information.
Is it possible to py in cash?
We have a policy that states that a reservation can only be verified after a legitimate payment has been made on our website. The process aids in preventing disputes that could occur while paying in cash in person. You can be confident that this money won't be given to the Local Expert right away. After your tour is over, Excursopedia will hold it and then provide it to the Local Guide.
How can I find out if a reservation has been confirmed?
When you finish making your online payment and the Local Guide accepts your booking request, your reservation will be finalized. You will receive a confirmation email. Don't worry; if the Local Guide does not confirm your booking after you provide your credit card information, the transaction will not be completed.
