San Juan La Laguna
The small village of San Juan la Laguna is situated directly on Lake Atitlán, 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 in which ancestral traditions have been conserved for many years and are still part of the villagers’ everyday life.
San Juan is also home to several local cooperatives, from weavers to coffee growers and bee keepers. This is what makes San Juan so special, the Tz´utujil people are famous for their craft traditions, and tourists can visit local cooperatives to learn more about the traditions.

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

Very peaceful hostel. I really enjoyed soaking up the natural setting and gardens every morning, and appreciated the economical meals at the restaurant and the cabin-style self catering facilities. The staff were really helpful and had tones of information/connections for navigating sightseeing tours, transit, and all that San Juan has to offer. Very authentic place which employs locals. Meals take a while so be prepared to wait. Speaking Spanish is helpful but some staff/guides speak English.

Pros: - Very quiet part on the outskirts of San Juan. You feel away from other travellers - Big double rooms - Clean showers and compost toilets - Affordable menu - very tasty and big portions - Friendly staff Cons: - DO NOT BOOK A HIKE THROUGH THEM. I’ve just read it from another traveller who experienced the same. We woke at 3am and waited for someone who never came. - Dogs may wake you at night - Far out from town so lots of walking - No atmosphere in evenings. V quiet in day
