My mom had to work half day so we didn't get to Panajachel until late, but managed to catch the last boat to Casa del Mundo. They helped guide us with flashlights up the many stairs (some with railings others without) to the office and then to our rooms. The stairs are tough but I liked to be a 'big... More

The first thing to say is that I didn't want to leave. In fact a favourite topic of conversation between me and some other guests I met there was... how can we figure out how to live here? I have absolutely no idea how anyone can give this place anything other than 5 stars. I can't fault it, it's as... More

It's hard to know where to start with Casa del Mundo.... With the candlelight meals comprised of gourmet local fare? With the flowers that cover the hills and the walkways? With the views from one's room... the wood-fired hot tub... the top of the hill...? We were traveling with a family of 4: my husband and I, our son (5)... More

We had a great three nights at Casa del Mundo. The location with its views over the volcanoes across the lake is quite amazing. Staff are helpful and charming, especially if you can understand a few words of Spanish. The trip from and to Pana is easy once you've done it! The communal meal at night is good fun. Food... More

Wonder ful place to stay. Lakeside hotel and gardens that tumble down to the water. Rooms have stonking views of lake and volcanos from your bed. Communal dining is delightful and food very good. Staff were lovely. So hard to leave after 3 days flew by.

We were guests at La Casa del Mundo in February 2015 for our son's wedding (which took place at an adjoining resort). Our stay was four days, and it was the most peaceful and beautiful location we have ever visited. The location itself, nestled in the mountains of Jaibalito, it beyond stunning. Our immaculate room had two patios, one of... More

A truly magical place we didn't want to leave. Beautiful, clean cottages amongst tropical lush gardens overlooking the lake and volcanoes. We loved every minute of our stay here. Group candlelit dinners, private Jetty and lake to swim in, private balconies, delicious food. So hard to leave. Thank you for a beautiful stay

My boyfriend and I stayed here for three nights in January. We arrived having booked two nights but straight away booked an additional night and would have stayed longer had we not been on a tight schedule. My boyfriend choose to propose to me whilst we were here (his location of choice after travelling for two months in Central America)... More
