Just got back from a wonderful trip to Lake Atitlan and Antigua. I was fortunate enough to be in touch with a young man from the United States who owns a beautiful home in Santa Catarina Palopo that he offers as a vacation rental. It is perched about 300 feet above the Lake with the most amazing views. His name is David Yates and his website is www.lacasacolibri.com. He also manages his neighbor's property which is also a beautiful home with the same incredible views. David has lived in Guatemala for years and is so helpful with all your travel questions and needs. He arranged transportation fro Guatemala City for us, recommended great restaurants, private boat trips, etc. Our trip would not have been as wonderful without all of his valuable advice. He even took us to the grocery store when we arrived! I wish there was a place on tripadvisor to rate La Casa Colibri - it would get 5 stars easily!
