It is my pleasure to introduce myself and my family as your host in your experience at our home in Lake Atitlán, one of the most beautiful lakes in the world.
We are a typical family who loves to share wonderful moments. We have a pretty busy schedule with work, school and family activities so when we get a chance, we enjoy rest and relaxation. We love to travel to different places and meet people from other parts of the world. We enjoy activities both outdoors and indoors. Just to name a few: boating, swimming, skiing, hiking, playing table and board games, watching a good movie, curling up with a good book or just sipping a glass of wine while having a meaningful conversation.
We particularly enjoy preparing and eating delicious food, reason why we have a fully-equipped kitchen which is at the center of our home.
In addition, I want to mention that we are in the Hotel/Restaurant business which makes us pay close attention to detail with emphasis on excellent service.
We have undertaken this project of making your stay a unique adventure and we can help in what is within our reach so that you enjoy not only what our home has to offer but also the wonders that this little bit of Central America offers.
We love Guatemala and we hope you enjoy it as much as we do, and we wish for you to have the most memorable stay.
