San Juan La Laguna
The small village of San Juan la Laguna is situated directly on Lake Atitlán, one of the most beautiful lakes in the world. Sheltered by the surrounding mountains and volcanoes, it is populated by the welcoming Tz´utujil people. It is a place in which ancestral traditions have been conserved for many years and are still part of the villagers’ everyday life.
San Juan is also home to several local cooperatives, from weavers to coffee growers and bee keepers. This is what makes San Juan so special, the Tz´utujil people are famous for their craft traditions, and tourists can visit local cooperatives to learn more about the traditions.

    Superb

    Perfect place to relax, beautiful ecological place, with amazing vegan/vegetarian restaurant. Try the banana ginger coconut soup. You are surrounded by trees and flowers. Beautiful and clean wooden accommodations all placed in their own little separate area. Great beds. Hot water showers which is not so common in the area. Clean bathrooms ( its eco - so they are compost, but they are SO clean and taken care of). The staff are lovely and friendly and helpful. Fantastic place, highly recommended.

    A calming environment great for reflection and relaxation. We took advantage of their Sunday sauna deal (Q10 for sauna and pizza), which was a great opportunity to meet some locals. We also organized an amazing sunrise hike with the help of the staff, which turned out to be amazing! I also loved their all vegetarian menu, which is cooked fresh when you order! Overall great stay, would recommend to others looking for a relaxed atmosphere

    Very Good

    Pros: hot showers, comfy beds, strong eco friendly approach, chilled out with good access to San Pedro for a busier atmosphere if you want it. Cons: very cold at night and no indoor common area to hang out when it is cold, restaurant food was poor quality and area was freezing to be in, no atmosphere, would not be easy to meet people if travelling solo.
