"Rustic Elegance"

The raw and majestic vibrancy of Guatemala's great outdoors make it a natural travel destination for naturalists of all backgrounds. Diverse geography allow for incredible Vistas from 12,000 foot volcanoes just a few short hours from watershed jungles and tropical coastal plains.

The raw and majestic vibrancy of Guatemala's great outdoors make it a natural travel destination for naturalists of all backgrounds. Diverse geography allow for incredible Vistas from 12,000 foot volcanoes just a few short hours from watershed jungles and tropical coastal plains.

Atitlan's three volcanoes, hundred mile lakefront, and myriad micro-habitats make a delightful destination for hikers and naturalists alike. Volcano guides can be arranged to help climb Atitlan, Toliman, or San Pedro. Canoes or speed boats can be provided to ferry our guests anywhere along the shoreline of Atitlan. Fishing expeditions are launched from our dock. The Santiago Respendent Quetzal reserve and the butterfly reserve just 15 minutes across the lake are very popular destinations. Longer expeditions can be arranged on horseback along the southern ridges of the lake.
Incredible biodiversity, retained up until now only because of the tragedies of the 30 year civil war, are now under renewed attack by logging, slash-and-burn agriculture, and mining operations across Guatemala. We encourage our guests to use their time sharing in the majesty of the Guatemalan natural spaces to reflect on how they might help guard such spaces for future generations.

With three dormant volcanoes and endless hills lining the lake, there is no shortasge of incredible hiking to be had in Atitlan. For many of the longer hikes, a local guide is recommended. We maintain a list of guides that other guests have used successfully in the past. Please inquire with your host, or when booking your reservation.
