Lake Atitlan

...the most beautiful lake in the world!

Sector Turistico del Lago Atitlan

Promoting Responsible & Sustainable Travel

In general, tourism is not an industry that negatively affects local culture and the environment, but there is always more that can be done no matter where or who you are – and in the Atitlan region there is work to do yet.

The Sector Turistico del Lago Atitlan has worked hard to do just that. wants to recognize those hotels that are members of the group. Accordingly, the group's logo will be displayed on the pages of all the hotels that are.

My hope is that:

  1. Travelers reward those hotels with their patronage.
  2. More hotels and business around the lake join the group.
  3. We conform to international standards for sustainable travel.
  4. We join international organizations such as:

I particularly like Global Sustainable Tourism Council's goal of: “Promoting the widespread adoption of global sustainable tourism standards to ensure the tourism industry continues to drive conservation and poverty alleviation.”

This is something that both we as local business and you as customers – paying customers – can and indeed, must accomplish.
