  • Description


    We are a family-run hotel/hostel with a restaurant, bar and scuba diving school on majestic Lake Atitlán in the highlands of Guatemala. Accessible only by boat, we are located right on the waterfront in the small indigenous village of Santa Cruz la Laguna looking out over the 3 volcanoes that surround the lake. We have a fun atmosphere in the hotel with family-style dinners every night. A great opportunity to meet other travelers and enjoy a fun place and stunning surroundings.

    We have various weekly evening activities like our Open Mic Night on Wednesdays and our BBQ Party on Saturdays. So bring your musical talent, interesting trivia and flamboyant personalities!!

  • Help


    We ask for a 6 week minimum commitment after a one week trial, from volunteers and for them to be over the age of 21. Help entails greeting guests, check-ins, generally being the friendly face at reception. The atmosphere is very casual but does get busy from time to time. We offer free room and 3 meals a day, half price drinks, free kayak/ paddle rental, and 10% off diving in exchange for your help.

    We need our volunteers to speak FLUENT SPANISH!! We need volunteers who are confident in answering queries in person and over the phone in English and Spanish.

    Please put the DATES that you are available to volunteer in the subject line of your message as it makes it easier for us to go through applicants and it also shows us that you have read our profile! :)

    We are currently looking for someone who can take care of our SOCIAL MEDIA and help in some web design. As well, we are looking for help in managing tasks (long term stay), so if you're interested in those positions, please mention it in your message and send your CV!

    We get a lot of email requests in for volunteer positions and try to answer each one but if we do not respond it is because we do not need volunteers at that time but thanks for your interest.
