I have recently returned from Guatemala in early December 2011 and I also returned to my favorite hotel in this country. Vulcano Lodge is a beautifully secluded hotel with quaint, clean rooms and incredible gardens throughout the entire property. Situated on Lake Atitlan near Panajachel, this hotel overlooks the lake and the three (3) dormant volcanoes across the lake. Boat access only in a small village with no cars, peaceful and relaxing.
But the food at this hotel is also exceptional. The Norwegian owner, Terje, is a wonderful chef and every meal I had there was delicious. The service was excellent and I managed to get by with linited spanish in my vocabulary.
I highly recommend anyone visiting Guatemala to consider this excellent lodge. Don't forget to bring your camera for majestic views, wonderful hikes around the lake, or hike to top of a volcano. Thank you Terje for your hospitality. I will likely be back again for a 3rd stay in 2012.
