  • A Wonderful Corner of the World

    "How fortunate we were to have found Pamakanya and Jaibalito/Guatemala for our family vacation! We have not been together as a family for a week long vacation since our adult children were in their late teens/college age and so this was a unique opportunity to catch up with our three daughters, their spouses and our two grandchildren. We have had the opportunity to travel and so a week long vacation somewhere none of us had been before was one of our goals and the ability to be in a country where you can really interact with the folks who live there was a real plus. I am fond of native Americans and the Mayan people who we were fortunate to meet were special and lovely. From the experience of talking with Maria and her daughter while they prepared for us one of three meals at the house (no easy task as we had two vegans and one vegetarian amongst the rest of us meat eaters) to interacting with restaurant owners and workers, boat drivers, , fellow passengers on the water taxis, or merchants in some of the small towns within walking distance from Pamakanya, we were enthralled. Lake Atitlan is indeed a special place and having those fantastic views of the lake and volcanoes, morning, noon, and night was something we will all long remember. The house was perfect for our extended family as we spread out comfortably in all three casitas and congregated at all hours in the main house. The owners have kept this house as I would have and do everything possible to make your stay perfect. The information provided by them was excellent and so we followed their recommendations many times including our first night stay briefly in Guatemala City before hiring the van to transport the 10 of us to the lake, where we caught our private boat to the house. Swimming in the lake and kayaking were two of the many special things we did during the week, walking to the neighboring villages and hiking a volcano two more, and we only regretted not being able to stay for a month instead of just a week! Work and the real world did eventually reimpose itself on all of our lives but the memories will long be with us of a fantastic week at Pamakanya, Jaibalito, Lake Atitlan, Guatemala. Thank you Katie and Becky..!!"

  • Amazing views

    "Our family of 5 was very comfortable in this beautiful home. Anastacio (the caretaker) was super helpful when we needed him. This house is off the beaten path which has its upsides and challenges. The house has a stunning view of the lake, a beautiful garden, and a nice area to jump off the dock. If I had it to do over I would have planned food a little better - my teens eat a lot! A few times we walked to Jaibalito for food at the Posada (20 minutes or so) - the path after heavy rains has some challenging spots. We had Maria come and make a meal for us one day which was amazing - We should have planned to have her come more than once. Be prepared for some bugs, spiders and scorpions (we caught 2 in the house during our 5 nights). Taking the lanchas to different towns was fun but be prepared to deal with inconsistent fees and haggling before getting on the boat - for us it was generally around 20q per adult and 15q per child to go a couple of towns."

  • Wonderful trip!

    "We stayed at this amazing location for 8 days over Christmas. It did not feel long enough. This is an incredible property with amazing gardens and views to die for. The caretaker of this property Ramos is very helpful and we are grateful for his delivery of water each day. We loved our meals at the Iguana Perdida which is right off the dock and run by Deedle and Dave the managers of the property. We hope to be back to visit again soon."
