          Car: Not Necessary

          Jaibalito has several hiking trails which will take you through the mountains or to the next villages.

          A short lancha trip will take to San Marcos ( new age interests), San Juan with its woman's cooperative who use only natural dyes in their work, you can visit their stores and watch the process. San Pedro is a bigger village known for its backpacking community, Santiago is bigger where men and women still use the traditional traje and has a vibrant market and street stall for buying textiles and other items.

          There is a nature reserve just outside Panajachel and some great restaurants in the town center. From Pana you can get almost anywhere using the minibuses which leave regularly to e.g. City, Xela and the coast.

          There is a ceremonial Maya site between Pana and Solola and arrangements can be made for a visit. Solola also has a very vibrant market twice a week and is worth a visit.

           

          Owner info

          Year Purchased: 2008

          About the owner: Originally from Ireland but spent most of my life in the USA. Over many years I traveled to Guatemala to visit the Maya ruins and fell in love with Lake Atitlan. When I retired I decided to move to the Lake and bought this magnificent house overlooking the lake. I now spend most of my time here when not traveling to the US to visit family and grandsons. Each year I go back to Ireland for a few months visiting family but always I am eager to return to Jaibalito which is now my home.

          Why the Owner Chose Jaibalito:
          During my early travels in Guatemala I always seemed to pass through Lake Atitlan. Each time I got to know it more and more. It was then I decided to retire here. The setting and beauty is second to none with about 12 villages around the lake, all still with indigenous population. Jaibalito is the smallest, population of about 900 where Kakchikel is the first spoken language followed by Spanish. The local women still wear the traje unique to the area. The only access to Jaibalito is via water taxe ( lancha) about 15mins from Panajachel. You can also take a scenic walk on the trail between Jaibalito and Santa Cruz which gives awesome views on the trail. There is ample opportunities to indulge in hiking, visiting other villages, swimming in the lake or just lay back and enjoy the garden, lake view and read a book.

          The Unique Benefits at this House:
          When I was looking for property around the lake this particular house caught my fancy because of its design, and location. Sitting on the balcony at anytime, but especially during late afternoon, you can enjoy the view, listen to the birds in the garden and watch some spectacular sunsets. Indeed from the comfort of your upstairs bedroom you can also view the sunrise.
