One of the planet’s most majestic spots, Lake Atitlan offers something for everyone. Volcanoes, coffee plantations, ancient villages, wild forests… Trails to be walked, waterfalls to be discovered, scenery to be remembered, stories to be dreamed… all this and much more are the treats our location offers for those willing to explore the area.
We can organize outdoor activities such as guided treks around the lake, kayaking, volcano climbing, Scuba diving and paragliding. Of course you can also swim right from our lakeside lounge! For a more relaxed day out, try out our boat tour around Atitlan’s Mayan villages.
Right from our hotel you can hike up to high canyon waterfalls, paddle on the glassy morning lake, or walk to neighboring villages. Our staff can help arrange transportation or tours to explore the rest of the lake… or you can stay here in our garden paradise and unwind with a fresh, natural cocktail or an evening in our hot tub.
We also invite you to dive into the ancient Mayan culture that hosts us: cultural guided visits to little villages and weaving demonstrations.
Come discover why Lake Atitlan has attracted travelers, explorers, and settlers for hundreds of years, and find out why it is so hard to leave!
