Lakefront Lodge Nestled in Mountainous Nature Reserve

The K'iche' people—who count the ancient Mayans among their ancestors—call Guatemala's Lake Atitlán "the lake of the south." Along with a trio of volcanoes and smaller cliffs, the lake forms the spectacular backdrop to Laguna Lodge Eco-Resort & Nature Reserve. It’s a scene that convinced both CNN and National Geographic to name the resort one of the world’s best eco-lodges. The property stretches from the lakefront to a high-altitude tropical dry forest, encompassing about 100 acres of Mayan nature trails altogether. Time writes of the resort, "it's pure Maya magic."

The lodge's design was inspired by its surroundings: volcanic stone, adobe, and palm all went into its construction. Suites have beds cut by hand from Guatemalan hardwood and draped in linens woven at a nearby village. Each unit has a large lakeside balcony outfitted with either an exposed pole ceiling or palm roof.

Laguna Lodge offers a variety of activities at the nature reserve, ranging from hikes through the volcanic Sierra Madre mountains to day trips to ancient ruins. You can take a horseback ride through the surrounding coffee fields, or go boating on the lake.

As part of Laguna Lodge's conservation measures, the onsite Zotz Restaurant offers an all-vegetarian menu with ingredients sourced from local farmers and the hotel's gardens. You can dine alfresco in pavilions overlooking the water and the surrounding volcanoes. A similar scenic view can be experienced during yoga sessions at the palm-thatched pavilion.

Lake Atitlán, Guatemala: Diverse Villages Around Volcanic Waterfront

Twelve villages line the shores of Lake Atitlán, including the quiet Santa Cruz La Laguna on the northwest shore, not far from Laguna Lodge Eco-Resort & Nature Reserve. The town is perched atop tall hills amid diverse land that’s popular with hikers and backpackers. From the waterfront, you can embark on scuba-diving tours into the more than 1,000-foot-deep lake to see underwater rock formations and areas of hot volcanic mud.

Public water taxis regularly stop at Laguna Lodge's dock, making it easy to visit other lakefront villages. Just a 10-minute boat ride can take you to Panajachel—the largest town on the lake, with about 10,000 residents. Lively shopping and nightlife districts make Panajachel the area's main tourist town. Another popular draw is Santa Catarina Palopó, where you’ll find a collection of thatch-roofed adobe houses, onion fields, and hot springs.
