then I can't even imagine how great the Suite must be! My wife, who is stationed in Guatemala with the Foreign Service, and I spent a wonderful weekend at La Fortuna in October. Every detail was absolutely first rate; from the lakeside wood fired hot tub (!), to the amazing meals, to our luxurious one-of-a-kind bathroom complete with beautiful recycled bottle wall. La Fortuna is a very short five minute boat ride from Panajachel and another five minutes to Santa Cruz, where we set out on a picturesque three hour lakeside hike to San Marcos. Steve and Kat were the perfect hosts! We are planning on returning soon and will recommend this wonderful retreat to all of our friends visiting Lake Atitlan.
