San Juan La Laguna
The small village of San Juan La Laguna is located directly on Lake Atitlan, one of the most beautiful lakes in the world. Sheltered by the surrounding mountains and volcanoes, it is populated by the welcoming Tz'utujil people. It is a place where ancestral traditions have been preserved for many years and continue to be part of the daily life of the locals.
San Juan is also home to several local cooperatives, from weavers to coffee growers to beekeepers. This is what makes San Juan so special, the Tz'utujil people are famous for their craft traditions, and tourists can visit the local cooperatives to learn more about the traditions.

Don’t stay here!! PROS: showers are actually amazing especially for an eco hostel. Dry toilets are ok but they’re a bit far from the dorm. CONS: staff isn’t the nicest, absolutely no atmosphere (i wasn’t expecting much of one for an eco hostel but still), dogs barked all night and I was woken up by the workers blasting music and talking at 8:30am, the “hostel” aspect is clearly their last priority. I usually don’t give bad reviews but I needed to warn people.

Eco hostel is a perfect place to reconnect with nature in a quite and calm setting. The staff are all very friendly and more then helpful. All the facilities are kept very clean and the cabin I stayed in was very clean and cosy . A perfect place if u want somewhere quite and tranquil to stay. About a 10 min walk to town but not too far and the tuck tuck can always take u there/ back if you do not fancy the walk. Would highly recommend.

The hostel was disgusting, smelly sheets and the bathroom was gross. There was also bugs everywhere. Don’t sleep here if you’re looking to sleep more than 10 minutes, the dogs bark ALL night right outside the door so aggressively I was actually scared. With the security (if you can call it that) I wouldn’t be surprised if the dogs got in. The windows don’t lock and there are so many gaps within the shaky building it wouldn’t even stand rain. Only bonus was the freezing cold room at night lol
