Set on Guatemala’s Atitlán Lake, Eco Hotel Uxlabil Atitlán has a private jetty and offers free kayak use. All rooms have a balcony with lake views and breakfast is included. After busy Panajachel and touristic San Pedro we really enjoyed our tranquil stay in Uxlabil. It’s a bit away from the nearest town San Juan, yet within 5-7-minute walk there if you want to see some local life. We found San Juan very authentic and were even lucky to see some local ceremonies and celebrations! We also loved birdwatching from our room and a great view of the mountains and the lake from the terrace and the restaurant. The staff was very nice and friendly, we really felt like at home. They also offer good quality breakfasts and dinners at the hotel restaurant for a very reasonable price.
Featuring free WiFi and a restaurant, Eco-Hotel Mayachik is located in San Juan La Laguna, 9.9 mi from Panajachel. A truly eco hostel - bio toilets, recycling facilities, free water refills, signs encouraging veggie lifestyle and conscious use of resources. The staff were all friendly and helpful and there is yoga, traditional Mayan sauna, plenty of outdoor seating/chill out areas, reasonably priced drinks/food, clean kitchen available. Also the gardens are full of herbs and fruit / avocado trees they have planted (they offer fruit for free from their gardens) and there are so many butterflies!
Featuring garden views, Casa Kawoq in San Pedro La Laguna features accommodations and a garden. Free WiFi is available throughout the property. PERFECT. Stunning location, beautiful bedroom, garden and kitchen. We loved our stay here and didn't do much in Lake Atitlan, just lounged around in our bedroom and the garden.
Sababa Resort features a restaurant, outdoor swimming pool, a bar and garden in San Pedro La Laguna. Featuring family rooms, this property also provides guests with a terrace. amazing place! Lots of quiet, very clean rosesert, good breakfast, excellent staff - very enjoyed !!
Small village, squeezed between party San Pedro and yogi San Marcos. Nice to visit these place but to stay a little bit more outside the crowd. There are some hidden jams: cafe Las Maria’s (great coffee and view!!), caffe La cabañas (great view over the lake, >20 different beers), cafe el artesano (lots of cheese and hams🧀 , it is real touristy (older rich tourists) though, but if you are missing the cheese of home it is a good place to forget about your homesickness 😉)
I fell in love with town as soon as got there. The view is unbelievable beautiful. You can appreciate the Indian Nose Mountain because it is right next to the town. It is so worthy to watch the sun setting and rising. Their church and park are just unique. I cannot wait to get back there.
San Juan is absolutely stunning and culturally very interesting. It famous among tourists for the numerous weaving, medicinal plant, art and pottery cooperatives that line the street leading to the dock. It feels different from the other towns around the lake and is much calmer. There is far less of a party scene and the town essentially shuts down on Sundays. It is a great place to learn about Tzutujil and Maya culture in general or just relax by the lake enjoying the astonishing views of Atitlan.
The place to find quality textiles produced by organised groups of women on a cooperative bais. It's very sedate in comparison to San Pedro but I prefer it that way. Good village to use as a base launches around the lake.
Isolated, hard to access, no hot water - food acceptable but definitely NOT "gourmet" as some (suspicious) reviewers have written! For $75 a night you can find better eco hotels in other places on the lake - you also have no view of anything on the lake except the Indian's Nose.
San Juan is a great town. You don't feel like you're in a tourist trap. Everyone is very welcoming and kind. We ended up spending 4 days there without ever leaving San Juan to go to another lake town! 4 days was a good amount to do the tours, hikes, shopping and other activities San Juan has to offer.
