My sister and I had an excellent experience with Los Elementos for a weekend away at Lake Atitlan. We were studying Spanish in Antigua and only had the weekends off so we decided to work with a company to help us maximize our time. Lee (the owner) arranged transportation from Antigua early Saturday and once we arrived our guide Humberto took us to visit three of the Lake's most famous towns via private boat (highly recommend if you are short on time). As a local, Humberto gave us an insider's view of the culture, history, and environment of Atitlan and took us to places such as a Mayan women's weaving cooperative would not have easily found ourselves. He also helped us practice our Spanish. In the evening we had an excellent meal at the restaurant next to Elementos and we stayed in a private home owned by Lee with a gorgeous garden and view of the lake. The next day another guide Mario took us on a fun kayaking trip from Santa Cruz to San Marcos and then we hiked back, getting excellent views along the way. Mario took us to his favorite restaurant in Santa Cruz for a delicious meal before it was time to leave. We so wish we had more time at the Lake but Los Elementos really gave us a lot bang for our buck. I highly recommend using the company to get the most out of your Lake Atitlan trip.

Great guide. Loved how flexible they are in order to make you happy and enjoy the day. We wanted to do a Kayak tour, but also tour of the towns around the lake and they gave us exactly that option, which isn't part of their standard services. Got there in the morning and we wanted to try stand up paddle boards, so they let us try it for half an hour around the lake before getting in the kayaks and paddling to our first destination. Mario, our great guide, was always helpful, patient and open to accommodate our wishes. Definitely recommend talking with Elementos and getting tours with them!!

We had fun kayaking along the shore of Lake Atitlan and enjoyed a stop to jump off the cliff. The hike was challenging enough and offered beautiful views and interesting visits to villages along the way. Our guide, Alex, was awesome. He was both knowledgeable and fun.

We worked with Lee and his company to both arrange for a house rental in the Lake Atitlan area and to have help in Panajachel to get situated for our stay. We also were able to rent kayaks from Lee. We couldn't recommend this company more! They were super friendly, welcoming, helpful and informative. A must use if you are in this region!

Great tour!! Very well organized and Marcelino was an awesome tour guide!! We kayaked for about 90 minutes before starting our hike. The hike was strenuous due to the significant amount of stairs but the pace was good and Marcelino was very accommodating. Highly recommend!

My friend and I booked this in December and had an amazing time! We had the day to ourselves with our guide Samuel. Kayaking was a blast, it was the perfect way to experience the lake outside of the crowded taxies. We went for the full day; kayaked in the morning, stopped for an awesome lunch at a small restaurant then hiked along the hillside back to Los Elementos. The hike was absolutely beautiful, and we walked through three of the less touristy villages. Heads up, the hike is pretty vigorous and was around 8 miles, but absolutely worth it for the views and insight from Samuel. This was my favorite day by far during my trip to Guatemala, I would strongly recommend this tour and getting off the beaten path for a bit while at Atitlan.

Kayaking on Lake Atitlan with Marcelino was so fun! He picked me up at the hotel and we took the community boat to the Adventure Center. Once there, we collected nice kayaks and life jackets for our 90 minute kayak around the lake. Along the way, I learned quite a bit about the Atitlan lake region. I'd highly recommend this activity.

On another day, my daughter and I hiked for the morning with Marce. They continued after dropping me off at the community boat. Another great experience.

The trip was nice, the kayaks was the best part the hiking was nice but way too long for what it was it was too repetitive. The guide was awesome! So yeah its a good adventure but maybe don't take the full day trip. And i forgot to mention the kayak was good quality.
