A Guatemalan Fairytale on Lake Atitlan
Guatemala is a country full of colour, culture and natural beauty; with one of the prime examples being the stunning Lago de Atitlan. In the Guatemalan highlands, surrounded by volcanoes lies the deepest lake in Central America.
Small Mayan communities are scattered around the lake, each with their own unique vibe. Transport between the little towns is only possible by boat, turning this place into a natural sanctuary far away from today's technologies.
At this magical lake, near the hippie town of San Marcos, you can find a magical place called 'La Fortuna'. This boutique hotel offers five luxury bungalows, nested between lush gardens and overlooking the impressive volcanoes on the other side of the lake.
An organic and gourmet breakfast, lunch and dinner can be ordered beforehand and served in your bungalow or together with other guests in the restaurant.
Day activities consist of lingering around, swimming, dipping into the hot tub, canoeing or exploring the lake by stand up paddle boards. Vulcano hikes, picknicks and village tours can be arranged if you'd like to venture out for the day.
La Fortuna focuses on sustainability by using local materials, waste water management and generating solar power.
Lake Atitlan and this hidden gem can definitely not be missing from your Guatemala itinerary.
