Real guests • Real stays • Real opinions
Casa Kaktus is a friendly, family-feel style guest house. The building was previously an abandoned Mayan boarding school and we have worked to transform the space into an original and unique place to stay. The rooms at Casa Kaktus are spacious and bright, and guests have access to a range of common areas, including the large communal kitchen, hammock patio, and our enormous sunny terrace with stunning views of the lake and volcanoes, perfect for enjoying your free Guatemalan breakfast.
I'm Ever, a Guatemalan from the Pacific coast, now living in Santa Cruz la Laguna, Lake Atitlan with my British wife. For many years I worked doing marine conservation. I enjoy being by the water, travelling and meeting new people. We would love to share our beautiful place with you.
Santa Cruz is a quiet and peaceful village which is only accessible by boat. It is the perfect place for relaxing and enjoying the views, but .there is also plenty to do here. You can go hiking, paddle-boarding or kayaking, take a yoga or Spanish class, or join a local workshop, such as Guatemalan cooking, weaving or bracelet making. From Santa Cruz, you can easily take one of the regular boats to explore some of the other Mayan villages, each with a unique character and appeal, where you can learn about the Mayan culture, visit weaver's co-operatives, shop for traditional handicrafts, take a coffee tour, climb a volcano or simply have a relaxing lunch in one of the many restaurants.
