Lake Atitlan, Guatemala advice needed

Jump to last reply


I'm hoping to take my 9-year old son to the Lake Atitlan area in March.

I'm concerned about a couple of things:

1) We don't speak Spanish (hope to learn in the upcoming year). Will that be a major issue?

2) Which town around the lake would be best? We'd like to stay in a hotel with a pool, but nothing too touristy (don't think much around the area could be considered touristy anyway).

I'm also concerned about having enough for us to do to keep my son entertained.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!
