“Words cannot do it justice”
Reviewed August 19, 2012

It's one thing to call Lake Atitlan the most beautiful lake in the world. It's another to see it. Stunning. I can only compare it to places like the Greek Islands and the towns that ring Richardson Bay in Marin County, California. But a lot more interesting!

The Lake Villa is a perfect place to enjoy the lake. Far enough away from everything to be quiet and tranquil, Close enough to visit any of the lake's fascinating indigenous villages via a short boat ride. (Boats are the best way to get around the lake.)

The proprietor Traci Styner is a fantastic vegan chef and her modern, spacious villa home is gorgeous. She's also very knowledgeable and enthusiastic about the area and is a wealth of information you won't find in any guidebook. My first time at the lake and in Guatemala and it was great.

Room Tip: You can have a view of the garden or a view of the lake.
