Maya Moon Lodge is very different to most places we have stayed at. Different for all the right reasons. We stayed in the Blue Heron room conveniently located not too far up the hill above the Bar area with wonderful shaded (by tree) views over the lake. Stunning sun rises. Room was great for our 7 day stay needs.
It was a 20 minute walk to San Marcos; alternatively the lake ferry launches stop at the Lodge's pier to take you to the other villages.
The food was good and the variety of travellers (and some local ex pat residents) passing through meant conversations were wide and fun.
Conversations became even wider and more fun with the owners (Chris & Fiona) and ****trick whose life stories could probably fill a book.
One morning a tremor told us Volcano Fuego was erupting and sure it was. We could view from our balcony.
Great experience which we will treasure. Enjoy it in its start up phase before it gets too well known !!
