“First point is that we hadn't traveled to Guatemala before and heard some things to be concerned about. We not only didn't have any safety issues but found people to be friendly, and helpful. Scenery of Antigua and at the house around Lake Atitlan are stunning. Beautiful is an understatement. We didn't have a car at the lake and didn't need one. The transportation by boat or tuktuk couldn't be much easier. The house itself is truly unique. Combination of rustic and chic. Very tasteful and stylish. Finally, Lucia was very accommodating and in touch with us throughout the trip. She was super responsive if we had questions. We couldn't have asked for more. ”
Where is it?
Our house is a 25 minute walk or a 10 minute tuctuc drive to touristic San Marcos La Laguna where you will find nice restaurants on the water, or acticities like jumping of rocks or just sitting on rocks to enjoy the lake. There are also a lot of retreat and selfgrowth centers where you can join for just a class or course.
Straight down from our house you have Hostal Maya Moon Lodge who offers their nice lakeside restaurant, hammocks and (stone)beach where children can play in the lake with floatable toys. You can go paddle-boarding or kayakking or go on a daytrip in a boat around the small Maya Villages. There is a nice second-hand fabric market every Tues,- and Friday in Panajachel (40 minute boatride). Also in Pana is a beautiful botanical garden and naturepark with ziplines. You can take Guatemalan cooking, - or painting classes or go on a hike to see the sunrise above the lake.
Also nice is to take a trip with 1 night to Las Aguas Georginas. This is a 2 hour drive to natural hotsprings in the mountains (cold!). Or visit
Guatemala's second capital Xela for 1 day and 1 night. We can tell you a lot about this small, but very pleasant city as well.
