My name is Francis and I am from Guatemala. I moved 6 years ago to lake Atitlán and opened this hotel with the idea to offer guests a home outside their home. I want everybody to feel comfortable and to have a happy stay. I love flowers and nature and here at Lake Atitlán we have plenty of nature. In my hotel I like it when every room has its special atmosphere. We have 16 rooms, 1 bungalow and a nice pool here. We also have a home style cooking restaurant and wifi.

Help with Computers / internet
I am looking for one volunteer who can help me in all different areas such as reception,garden, housekeeping and general maintenance. You need a basic knowledge of spanish, because we have next to international travellers also a lot of local tourists coming. And I need somebody who can help me with the homepage and the social media. But we are not always busy, so please note that I might need your help also in other tasks: water plants, helping with the rooms etc. Do not worry, it is no hard work, but you need to be flexible. :)
I offer a private room with tv, free wifi and your private bathroom. You will have breakfast and lunch with us. The breakfast can be typical or american (the same breakfast for the guests) and the lunch will be the same like we eat.
We also have options for vegetarians, but please note you need to prepare it for yourself.
We have a nice pool and you are very welcome to use it.
We are located directly at the famous Lake Atitlán in the touristy town Panajachel. Here you will find a lot of restaurants, bars, clubs, tour agencies etc. There are boats to the other different towns at the lake leaving several times a day. From the hotel you can walk everywhere and you will be in 50 m at the lake and in 5 Minutes walking in the city center.
Located in the department of Sololá in the Guatemalan highlands, Lake Atitlán is surrounded by mountains and volcanoes, which make for a magnificent background and highlight the lake's beauty. The forests around the lake are also one of the last habitats of the Quetzal, Guatemala's national bird.
Lake Atitlán is of volcanic origin. It was formed approximately 85,000 years ago in a tremendous eruption that ejected more than 300 cubic kilometers of lava and ashes into the atmosphere. Today you can hike the three volcanos which surround Lake Atitlan.
