Everyone here is at the top of their field - whatever treatment you are looking for it will be excellent here. Classes are great as well. Highly recommended if you are staying in town for a little while and want to learn a thing or two.

Visited Lake Atitlan and one of the towns on it a few times now. San Marcos is a smaller town, with a totally different vibe than the larger party towns of Pana and Pedro. This is the place to go if you want some peace and quiet and to mix with indigenous people on a more "real" level.

My favorite 'must do' stop there is to go to the Holistic Center. It has several practitioners working there and have Reiki, massage, hypnotherapy and they have spa services as well (facial, wax and pedicures etc). They also teach courses regularly, massage and others. I believe they are certified....you get some type of certificate when finished.

Its set up in a garden setting, really beautiful. When you walk in there is a board showing who works there, and what each person does, then you need to sign up on the white board under the person's name and what time you want to see them. I was there in January and you had to book about 5 days in advance as all the spots were full, but I noticed its slower in the rainy season.

Every time I have gone its really been awesome, with the massages being over an hour and for a super low price of about $35 (I pay $110 for 60 minutes at home). And every time I have felt so good after, even the hypnotherapy is really relaxing. I highly recommend a visit, you can take a boat from one of the bigger towns or a shuttle direct (the road in is a tough one though).
Be warred though San Marcos has a way of making you want to stay, even thought there isn't much there.
