Visitors to Lake Atitlan will enjoy the peace and beauty of Lake Atitlan, and enjoy visiting the villages around its shores. The lake´s inhabitants are mainly indigenous who speak 3 main Maya languages and dress in a wonderful variety of colorful hand made textiles. Panajcahel can be a lively town at night and a great place to shop by day. It is the capital town of the lake and therefore it´s main hub. If you like adventure you can also find this at the lake. World class paragliding, kayaking trips and volcano hikes make it an ideal location for adventure and relaxation.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2012

About the owner: I am originally from the UK but have been living abroad for 18 years. After traveling and working in Latin America for nearly 3 years I decided to settle in Guatemala where I co-developed a well known hostel in Lanquin, where you can find the breathtaking Semuc Champey National Park. About 5 years ago I decided to move to Panajachel with my wife and 2 Young daughters 8 years ago. I have a degree in Tourism management and have specialized my work in this area for over 20 years.

Why the Owner Chose Panajachel, Guatemala:
I decided to renovate this house, mainly for its location and for having 3 bedrooms. It´s situated in a peaceful part of town only 3 minutes walk from the lake,and 3 minutes from our family home. It´s a fantastic point to base yourself for a visit to Panajachel and all of Lake Atitlan. Private boats can be hired from near the house for trips to other Lake side towns.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
The house has a property next door that has a large garden, which makes the house feel even more spacious and green. Few Tuc Tucs pass by this road. The security is fantastic in this quiet part of town, and the house has a large main gate and walls which give it superior privacy. Being only a few minutes walk from the lake means that it´s easy to pop off to see the sun set or rise. The house has a very intimate cottage feel, a quaint front porch and green garden. The community where the house is situated is very friendly and has plenty of small shops nearby for buying food and drink for the house.
