Property Description

Free Cerveza is a fun glamping hostel located right on the beautiful shores of Lake Atitlan. Our awesome lakefront property overlooks 3 of Central America’s most famous volcanoes - San Pedro, Atitlan, and Toliman.

We have a bar fully stocked with all of your favorite alcoholic (and non-alcoholic) beverages, a full breakfast, lunch & dinner menu prepared by our gourmet Mayan chefs.

We offer private glamping options (1-3 people) as well as our very popular cozy lakehouse which sits out on the water. All types of accommodation are fully set up with electrical power and warm blankets.

All guests can enjoy unlimited use of Free Cerveza’s facilities and equipment. You can sunbathe and swim off of our private docks, enjoy unlimited use of our stand up paddleboards and tubes, take out our kayaks for a little adventure, zen out with our yoga mats on our lakefront platform, or hang out in our steamy sauna for an afternoon. We also have limited access to WIFI - although we promise, you will find a better connection with the people and the atmosphere.

In a mission to protect our beautiful environment, the owners built this property with love, using eco-friendly materials and technology such as compost toilets, recycled wood, and glass bottles, and LED lighting.

Free Cerveza is located in Santa Cruz la Laguna on the northern shore of Lake Atitlán, only a 10-minute boat ride from the main dock at Panajachel. You can even ask for the driver to drop you off directly on our private dock! View House Rules

    Had an amazing experience glamping at the hostel. Always lots of activities to keep busy with outstanding views of the beautiful lake. The staff are always there for you whatever your needs and they always make sure that you're having the best of time. I can't wait to be visiting this place again!

    The best hostel on the lake. Had an amazing time at Free Cerveza. Beautiful lakefront property with comfortable accomodation and a fun atmosphere. The food there was delicious and they have the most welcoming staff, both locals and travellers. Really enjoyed the free use of their kayaks, paddleboards and sauna. Would definitely recommend this hostel to anyone travelling the lake!

    Free Cerveza is the best place to stay in Lake Atitlan, no doubt! As soon as you arrive you'll have a free beer and a warm welcome from their super friendly staff. They have comfortable accommodation options, amazing atmosphere, delicious food and gorgeous panoramic views. Everyday you have 2h of non-stop beer included in the dinner, what can be better than that? Also, I loved to kayak and sup (it's free and they have plenty) and their respect for the environment. Thanks, I'll be back for sure!

    Free cerveza was amazing! They have one of the best locations and views on the lake. It is a perfect hostel for solo travelers to be social and hangout. Met some amazing people here. The food is delicious and you get two hours of all the beer you can drink! One of my all time favorite hostels that I’ve stayed.
