Package Itinerary

Welcome to Guatemala where you can experience a unique kind of diving in the high-altitude volcanic crater lake of Lake Atitlan.

Plunge you hands into hot volcanic mud along the lakes fault line, dive amongst massive volcanic rock formations, walls and swim-throughs.

Dive Sites of Lake Atitlan

There are lots of dive sites to choose from when diving with us. They range in difficulty level from easy sites for everyone, to some more challenging sites for more experienced divers.

Agua Caliente

The active fault line running down the hillside and under the lake creates areas or thermal activity. Plunge you hands into the silt to feel the boiling hot temperatures from below. The hotspots are also a favorite of the fish, making this a great site to see the elusive cichlid and a busy location during spawning season.

Arthur Kennedys

On the cliff above the site sits an impressive house. Under the water this is a site of breathtaking cliffs, overhangs, walls and volcanic scenery. A great place to dive a little deeper, but the volcanic scenery is great shallow too.

Rambo II

A more advanced wall dive with a vertical swim through. Starting at 22m this chimney type space is only big enough for one diver at a time. Go through it, and emerge at the other end at 15m. Then continue up past volcanic formations and walls, plants fish and crabs.

Casa del Mundo

A site of great variety. Start exploring the flooded lower terraces of this hotel before descending and following a volcanic rock wall. Shallow up, and pass a giant sunken dock before further exploring rooms and passage ways of the hotel. The dive ends swimming amongst flooded bamboo plants, sunken trees and docks.

Punta De Loma

This dive starts on one side of the point amongst the plants and and ends on the other in the great volcanic scenery. In between drop down to 20 meters and look for big crabs under the giant volcanic boulders. See places where fish lay their eggs, and perhaps more cichlids.

Punta Caliente

A lovely bay with some of the best volcanic formations. Pyramid shaped rocks and points that extend deep down into the lake. You can go down more than 20m here, but it is interesting at any depth.

Enjoy the lakes freshwater fish, plants and crabs then surface to unparalleled views of this volcano ringed lake.
