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.

Expect a lot of walking! We did this reserve with our toddler who was 14 month old and 2 seven year old twin boys. It's not impossible. The kids had a lot of fun. Lots of bridges that can make you nervous and a nice...More

Awesome way to spend the morning in Panajachel, Lake Atitlan. First time ever zip lining – we had a blast! We did the ultra extreme and it was definitely worth it. The views of Lake Atitlan are incredible. Lots of climbing but well worth it....More

I have been on better canopy forest walks , but it was still a very good nature experience. It does not take too long to do and seeing the wildlife is an added enjoyment

We really enjoyed our visit here. We went in with low expectations but were pleasantly surprised by the well maintained walking tracks, the abundance of wildlife around (including lots of spider monkeys) and the butterfly house. I recommend visiting here if you have spare time...More

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