The Atitlan Nature Reserve is both a must for visitors of Lake Atitlan and a force in the environmental cause: Atitlan Azul. It is an extraordinary gate to the magnificent Lake Atitlan and its spectacular volcanoes. Its zip lines, butterfly preserve, trails, hanging bridges and lodgings bring you in close contact with nature. On the zip lines you fly above waterfalls, coffee groves, oak stands and the steep cliffs that guard the lake. At the Butterfly Geodome you enjoy the colors and forms of hundreds of butterflies surrounded by flowers and the sounds of water. Humming birds and the murmur of the river accompany you while you have lunch, coffee or a drink, then you continue to explore the diversity and beauty of this natural wonder. At night, the crickets, owls and the sounds of the night will be your company in our lodging. The Reserve supports the work of scientist and students concerned with biodiversity and environmental degradation.

You can go for a short hike over hanging bridges, with waterfall views, they have butterflies and monkeys (gated). Then they have 2 ziplines; 1 with short but many lines; 1 with long but only 3 lines. Since we did not have the time, we...More

I just can recommend the Cables X-tremos! Lifetime experience! They're super helpful as well! It has 7 lines and goes down from 1020 m with a spectacular view and speed!

The bridges were cool but there were literally no butterflies in the dome. A few were in the greenhouse but I would have liked to see them with more space. we basically paid to walk in the rope bridges and look at the falls. Overpriced...More

Hike, zip-line, hold on for dear life, see the stunning lake, meet butterflies, see great sights. It was a great day with the family, although I was scared to death first time zip-lining. It ended up being one of the best days in Guatemala.

Loved this national park, there is a nice butterfly garden and a walk which takes about 1,5 hours. Cool bridges (tip: don't walk them on flipflops, I lost one) and monkeys to spot. Great view on the lake.

Wonderful trails with lots of sights and very cool butterfly garden. Lovely way to get out of bustle of town and into some nature. Well marked trails but definitely not handicapped accessible. My second time going, I went last year too. I highly recommend!!

Lovely hill side jungle. The Ultra Extreme Zip Line is a must - very long rides high above the trees overlooking the lake!

Ziplining requires a guide, I believe walking around the park can be done on your own.
