About the Property
Experience "the land of eternal spring" - Lake Atitlan, Guatemala
Easy access to the lake from the house is provided by way of the private serpentine pathway that links the road (above the house) to the house, and then on down to the lake. If you do become tired, rest areas are provided on the grassy terraces.
Public boats (known as lanchas) pass the dock periodically throughout the day. Just wave from the dock, and the boat will gladly pick you up and later return you. Private boat transportation is also available, if you prefer to set your own schedule.
Activities at Lake Atitlan are varied, from guided adventure tours to mountain climbing to kayaking and zip-lining. You're sure to find what suits you, even if its a leisurely walk or a relaxing read (or snooze!) in a colorful hammock. Whether you seek adventure or cultural pursuits, there are experienced local guides and tourist agencies located in Panajachel to assist you. Or, simply board a lancha or arrange a private boat to be yours for the day.
A favorite activity of mine is exploring the native villages alongside the lake. Each is unique in its history, language, customs, and dress The artists' village of San Juan is a great place to view some of the best oil painting done at the lake. These families take pride in their work and are pleased to meet with you and talk about their art. Examples of lake art adorn the walls of Case Palo Jiote and include some tapestry pieces, as well. Enjoy!

Year Purchased: 2014
About: Not just the temperate climate, but also the friendly faces enticed us to return to Lake Atitlan again and again. At last, we were able to build a house of our own on a beautiful mountainside, over-looking the lake, near the village of San Marcos la Laguna. Now, we look forward to being here even more, and also to welcoming visitors and guests to experience the beauty and ambiance of Casa Palo Jiote, the terraced gardens, and our private lakefront. Enjoy the magnificent volcanoes, the song of the birds, and the tranquility of life here. Bienvenidos!
Why Pasajcap (San Marcos La Laguna, Guatemala):
After visiting Guatemala and Lake Atitlan on vacation to Central America, we always enjoyed the scenic beauty of the lake area, its charisma, and the somewhat reserved, but smiling, friendly people.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Casa Palo Jiote is a dream come true for us. From the original house design, through many changes and additions,, we have ended up with a lovely, warm and welcoming home. We are often asked, "was it worth all the trouble?" And the answer is always, yes. Look out the windows, feel the cool night air, listen to the morning sounds, and best of all, that incredible view from the Master suite when you feel surrounded by stars, some big, some small, and knowing how special it all is.
