I visited La Fortuna in April 2012. La Fortuna owners welcome you with open arms making you feel at home instantly. Right away you get the sense that it's an absolutely perfect escape but with the perfect amount of ammenities to make you feel like nothing is lacking. It's location right on the lake makes for a stunning view, but it's conviniently located close enough to Panajachel and other near by towns.

The bungalows are beautifully crafted, spacious and airy! A definite highlight is the outdoor bathroom with private gardens attached to the bungalow. Although outdoors, it's completely private offering a very serene experience. The very comfy king size bed is another highlight making afternoon naps a delight!

Spending a whole week there, I miss relaxing on the front porch with a good book, sitting up in the loft and enjoy morning coffee or an afternoon drink with a view, or just walking around the property taking in the lake and volcanoes. There's a lot to do in the area if you like hiking, kayacking and scuba diving, and you can easily visit the indigenous villages around the area or some great markets.

Steve is extrememly knowledgeable and gives great advice and recommendations for what to do during your stay. You can get really great food, a lot of it grown on the property, at affordbable prices right at the lodge if you're not up for going into town. Try the blue corn pankcakes. They are yummy! If you plan to be in the Lake Atitlan area (and everyone should at some point), La Fortuna is a definite must and somewhere I plan to visit again.

Room Tip: I stayed in Bungalow Argentina, and it was stunning!

Honored to have been the first guests at this beautiful eco-lodge! The amenities are unbelievable and only surpassed by the natural beauty and warm hospitality of the hosts. Steve is an excellent cook! Enjoying morning coffee, harvested from the property, on the patio was exceptional!
The entire experience was lovely and cannot wait to return and see how the property develops. Visiting La Fortuna and relaxing under the stars in the private outdoor bath is a must!

Room Tip: The hosts are extremely accommodating!

We live in Panajachel. My husband and I wanted to escape the chaos of Pana and enjoy some "quality" time to together. We chose our escape to a new eco-lodge, La Fortuna. It was amazing! We enjoyed breathtaking views of the lake, delicious food & wine, and lots of serenity. Needless to say, we left La Fortuna floating on air. We felt completely rested from soaking in the large outdoor bath and lounging in the huge king bed. We ate a spectacular dinner and breakfast on our front porch overlooking the lake. I highly recommend La Fortuna on Lake Atitlan, Guatemala.
