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

    One of our favorite spots on the lake. Swimming, kayaking, paddleboarding off the dock was fun and relaxing. Great people and food was all super tasty. Fun place to relax during the day and party in the afternoon. You can even walk on a trail over to San Marcos. We stayed in a private tent which was nice but does not block any sound so bring earplugs. Otherwise very comfy bed, space to spread out your things if needed.

    This hostel is exactly what you think it is. A cool twist on camping with a full bar and an insane view. Paddleboards and kayaks are free which is awesome and you do in fact get free beer for 2 hours when you sign up for the dinner (which is pretty good). The staff Wally, Rico, and Stanley were all very friendly and welcoming. Cant wait to come back!

    Very outdoorsy and cute. I just couldn't deal with the bugs, personally. The staff was super nice. The atmosphere is great. There is a sense of community in the shared areas. I did feel like one of the older people in the stay.

    Little expensive room cost even with the free kayaking and paddle boarding although they were nice. The location is beautiful and food good. Staff helpful when I got ill about telling me what I needed. The dinners are annoying if you just want one item to share - you can only order a 3 course meal for a set amount and there’s no where really around to eat. Views insane!

    There is no free cerveza. Actually nothing is free, you must pay for your coffee separate to your breakfast. Other than that, nice deck area and the volunteers are really nice cool people
