See Guatemala from the sky, on this hours-long helicopter flight from Lago de Atitlán in the Western Highlands to Lago Peten Itza in the Maya Lowlands.
Taking off from a helipad near the shore of the deepest lake in Central America, you’ll be immediately struck by the breathtaking vistas. Sparkling fresh water fills a massive volcanic crater, surrounded by steep hills and the sharp cones of volcanoes.
Fly above the hilly highlands and make a brief stop amid the urban sprawl of Guatemala City, before taking off again. Settle in for a non-stop two-hour flight to Lago Peten Itza, in the country’s north—a trip that will take you nearly across the entire length of Guatemala.
