Getting to Guatemala is easy. So is getting from the Guatemala City airport to Lake Atitlan, one of the most exquisite and beautiful spots on earth with many luxurious rental vacation homes and villas to choose from.
We recommend hiring a private shuttle from the airport to Lake Atitlan. We always use a family shuttle service with three excellent and highly reliable drivers who greet guests just outside the airport and hold up large signs with their names. The trip takes 2.5 hours and ends at Panajachel , the gateway village to Lake Atitlan . The total cost, is $100. You have two choices for lake transportation to your hotel or your vacation rental house or rental villa. You can take a public boat called a “lancha” for Q 20 (about $2.70) or you can hire a private boat “lancha privada” for about Q250 (around $31.00) Whichever you choose, know that the last public boat leaves Panajachel at 7:30 pm . Tell the boat captain where you are going as soon as you get on board. For our guests, we arrange for a private boat to bring them to Casa Colina , our vacation rental home in San Marcos La Laguna , and the private dock for guests.

Year Purchased: 2006
About the owner: David and I fell in love with Lake Atitlan years ago and in 2006 , after much searching, we found our dream place. Here , in this quiet cove beside a sacred Mayan cliff and just outside the charming village of San Marcos La Laguna, we constructed our home, Casa Colibri . Until it was completed in 2009, we lived in Casa Colina , the original large and rustic stone house higher on the hillside The two houses are quite private, separated by a long stone stairway . In 2010, , we totally renovated and furnished Casa Colina, and began offering it for rental. Lake Atitlan remains an unspoiled corner of the world. It is always a pleasure to share its stunning beauty, tranquility and magical energy with friends and visitors.
Why the Owner Chose Pasajcap (San Marcos La Laguna, Guatemala):
Aldous Huxley described Lake Atitlan this way: ' I think I have just seen what may be the most beautiful lake on earth. Picture Lake Como with volcanos...it is almost too much' He was right. The natural beauty here takes your breath away. Temperatures are spring like and perfect , never too hot or too cold. The sunrises and sunsets are spectacular, the indigenous people are friendly, hard working and very kind. San Marcos , the nearby village, is a charming place, no cars, shops run by local artisans, 15 restaurants with delicious food at unbelievably low prices, an array of health spas with highly skilled massage therapists and healers. Casa Colina is luxurious with all the comforts and amenities you deserve including fast speed internet and low speed hammock. But be warned. If you are like us and most of our guests, you will fall under the spell of Lake Atitlan and start dreaming about moving here.
The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
If you rise with the sun before 6 am , you'll relish the sight of indigenous fishermen already out on the lake . Paddling handmade pagodas, they are fishing exactly the way their ancestors did hundreds of years ago. It is an irresistible photo op! You will also be serenaded by our 38 different species of birds . This number was documented several years ago by a Welsh husband and wife team of bird watchers who spent three weeks here . Like our bird friends, they appreciated the many avocado and banana tress , the herb garden, lush bougainvillea and thanks to our talented gardener , Francisco, the colorful and full variety of plants and flowers . Mornings are especially delicious here. If you are swimmers, Casa Colina offers the best location on the Lake, very safe and private and from your own private dock. We supply e plenty of rafts, beach towels, snorkely equipment and a small row boat to use exploring the Lake. Upon confirmation , we send a 10 page booklet packed with helpful information about the house, San Marcos La Laguna and other villages and suggested activities around the Lake. Transportation around the Lake is easy, enjoyable and inexpensive. Public boats stop by our private dock every 20-30 minutes. San Marcos is only a 3 minute boat ride away.
