Lake Izabal (Lago Izabal) is the largest fresh water lake in Guatemala. It's approximately 31 miles in length, with a maximum width of 16 miles.
The lake is ringed by a tropical rain forest, and home to a rich population of fish. In addition, fresh-water sea manatees populate its waters.
The Maya constructed numerous sites around this beautiful lake - and who could blame them - as the flora and fauna within the surrounding landscape continues to be a magnet for visitors, especially eco-tourism types.
