The incredible lakes in Guatemala hold economic, social, sentimental, and even spiritual importance for many Guatemalans, especially the major Mayan ethnic groups inhabiting lakeside villages. These rural communities rely on the lake for drinking water, bathing, recreation, textiles and fisheries.
The Maya fished for everything from shellfish to large fish and sea mammals using nets, harpoons (long spears), and fishhooks. The Maya caught fish in coastal lagoons using bows and arrows.
The lakes are surrounded by phenomenal creatures big and small and mountains and volcanoes.
