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!

Overall a nice stay. Access to a dock was ideal for hanging/swimming & access to other towns. Breakfast & family dinners were good value & the amenities were good considering the price. Vibe was a little weird because of the excessive amount of volunteers. Felt like you were crashing their party, & was hard to tell who worked there & who didn’t bc they don’t seem to do much. A lot of people book this hostel for the social aspect but it felt harder to meet people here than at other hostels.

Overall lovely hostel. Lovely location and great facilities! I loved the daily family dinners bringing everyone together. Only negative is that the (big group of) volunteers were more focused on each other than to actually socialize with the guest, creating a weird vibe and feeling of not being as welcome

Such an epic little spot to park up for a couple of days. Family dinner is three courses and delicious food - we thought it was great value for money (you get 2hrs of free beers when you sign up for dinner) They have paddle boards free to use from their pier and the tents aren’t bad - pretty comfy and have charging ports available. You can order breakfast and lunch through the cafe and we thought the food was really good, not badly priced. Overall is a fun, adult summer camp feel.
