Lake Atitlán, Guatemala

Lake Atitlán is a fairly large lake for the elevation (1,562 m) in the Guatemala highlands. It is technically endorheic (lacking direct flow to the sea) but substantial seepage feeds two nearby rivers.

Atitlan is recognized to be the deepest lake in Central America with maximum depth about 340 metres (1,120 ft). The lake is shaped by deep escarpments which surround it and by three volcanoes on its southern flank. The lake is about 50 kilometres (31 mi) west-northwest of Antigua.

The lake basin is volcanic in origin, filling an enormous caldera formed in an eruption 84,000 years ago.

The area supports extensive coffee and avocado orchards and a variety of farm crops. The lake itself is rich in animal life which provides a significant food source for the largely indigenous population.
