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 join in on one of our fun daily activities! 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 Atitlan, 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!

Great place! Nice views and very clean facilities! My only complaint is that I did not enjoy having to pay mostly in all cash for the nights we stayed. Food and drinks I understand but I don’t like carrying a bunch of cash just to pay for a hostel. 🤷🏽‍♀️

FREE CERVAZA! Yeah if you pay for it;) Nice place to stay if you enjoy tents, it’s basically unbearable to be in your “room” from sunrise til sunset. Overall pretty overrated place to stay honestly, it’s a fine hostel, nothing more, food is overpriced and taste like …. Showers were amazing though! Toilets the complete opposite! Vibe is great though! No doubt about that!

Nice social vibe, great location at the lake with private docks. It does get hot in the tents after 8am. Beautiful hostel. Would love to stay here again
