    Please, write us in spanish, we almost dont speak english :)

    We are small family hotel situated close to the Atitlan lake in San Pedro la Laguna village. We are located in a quiet area 3 min walk from the lake. We have 9 rooms, small communal kitchen, beautiful terrase for doing yoga with a very nice view to the lake, San Pedro volcano and Indian Nose volcano. The San Pedro Village is relatively quiet(though sometimes it is a lot of parties going on, it all depends on what kind of tourists are in the area). We have a really good market where you can get fruits and veggies for a very low price, very nice hiking trails to walk in the mountains, and also the San Juan village is very close, and there you can see how local women make textiles with natural colors. Also local people from San Pedro are very nice and welcomming with people from other countries and cultures. You are welcome here!

    Por Favor, escribenos en español, no hablamos mucho ingles :)
