    Description

    We are a small family lodge on Lake Atitlan
    We have a 18 bed lodge for backpackers. we are low to mid range not a hostel.

    We are directly on the lake in Tzununa. Great views, a beach, good for swimming.

    We prefer single people who can stay minimum of 8 weeks or longer, most people stay longer if they can. (Please don’t apply unless you can stay for at least 8 weeks)

    Please DO NOT apply if you are a couple.

    We offer a share of the tips, food, accommodation, laundry.

    We like general all rounder work exchange people that can work with a team, have customers service skills with clients and are flexible and grounded. Experience in customer service and restaurants.


    Our lodge was co created by Fiona and Chris and a local family, it has taken 10 years of building to be at the stage it is now, the land was barren, we have been open as as a lodge for about 2 years.

    We employ people from the local village of Tzununa, we only have work exchange volunteers to do tasks the local people can not do at this stage, we hope to be able to train the local people to perform all tasks in the future.
