Lake Atitlán is a natural and cultural icon that inspires everyone who visits it.
It is one of the most symbolic destinations in the country and a source of water for over 100,000 people that live on its shores.
Unfortunatley, Lake Atitlán is loosing its clarity and purity. We can be active in its rescue or passive witnesses to its destruction.
Asociación de Amigos del Lago de Atitlán
