What an absolute adventure!

Climbing with Los Elementos Adventure Center was definitely an adventure. Once I signed up, Lee (who runs the place) immediately contacted me and provided me with options for my rock climbing experience. I opted for the over-the-water climb, and my guide, Greg, briefed me on what to expect. To get to the cliffs where the climbing routes were, we took a nice, short boat ride across the beautiful Lake Atitlan. Once at the cliffs, I started the climbs directly from the boat...that was great fun! The climbs were a combination of rock climbing & jungle climbing, as there are some roots & bushes that I had to get through to get to the top. All of these were what made it such a great adventure for me, along with the fantastic views at Lake Atitlan. Great experience overall!
