Guatemala's best lakes and lagoons

Guatemala’s best lakes and lagoons

Guatemala is full of volcanoes, some of them feature turquoise lagoons, which fill their craters and stand 2,700 meters above sea level. Many of them are considered sacred by locals. I went there in 1993. I Especially liked Semuc Champey (natural pools), Ayarza (sleeping overnight at its shore is unforgettable) or Atitlan (the bigger and most popular, where I had the chance of doing water skiing in between the volcanoes!!). My friend Norma from Guatemala told me I missed Chicabal Lagoon and Lachua (the sky’s mirror) 🙂
