Property Description

San Jorge La Laguna has started this home stay program in the village to give something back to the communities around Lake Atitlan, also to give you a very genuine experience of living with a Maya family to experience their culture and customs.

Meals in the home will be prepared by the mother of the family and you will have the opportunity to enjoy dinner and breakfast meals at home with the family. (Both are included in the price).

Check in:
Monday - 4:00 PM
Sundays: 4:00 PM

This is very appassionated since we need to allocate you with the family where you will sleep!

Public transportation to the Home Stay is 4 Quetzales each way. (Around $0.50 USD)

Where will I stay?
During your trip you can stay one ore more nights with a family from the ethnic group of the Kakchiquel in San Jorge La Laguna.

This experience is runs for 14 years to the village and families who welcome foreigners into their homes. As a responsible traveler, we as guests must be aware of and sensitive to the culture by behaving respectfully during our time with the family and in the village.

Although shy at first, the villagers are very friendly and welcoming people.

The home stay will give you a genuine insight into the everyday lives of a local family. If you take photos of the people in the village, please always ask before you take them.

You might find the housing situation in San Jorge La Laguna rather basic but the reason for doing this home stay is to give a real insight into Guatemala, so you can experience the culture firsthand and interact with the local community on a personal basis.

The coordinators of the home stay program in San Jorge La Laguna are Daniel Jiatz Pocop.

We hope that you enjoy this very unique experience.

10/10 would recommend doing this!! Booked to stay with Anselmo and Petrona and their family, we received a tour of the town from their son Robinson, as well as dinner, coffee and a live performance on the marimba to which we were taught Guatemaltecan dances. A very fun evening and a very personal way to get to know the local culture. We also were giving the chance to wear traditional clothing and learn the native language. The bedrooms were cleaner than most hostels I’ve been to. For the price you pay it’s

I understand how a local Central American lives, I really do. For the price paid, I would say twice or three times as expensive as it should be. No way to find the place, luckily the mom and dad were walking on the street and found me. Not a clean or even up-kept place Not much Spanish was spoken, more Mayan (which is a beautiful language) and the others staying there kept speaking Dutch. Food was ok, I am an American and can make better tortillas Please stop charging this much for such
