La Casa Del Mundo - Other-Worldly Beauty In GuatemalaLa Casa  
Del Mundo

The charming little hotel nestled on a mountain cliff in Lake Atitlán is run by the owners, Bill (originating from the US) and Rosy (from Guatemala). They met and married in Alaska, where their two sons, Sebastián and Benjamín, were born. Their dream was to build their own house in Guatemala. However, they realized that they had to open up their place to visitors to make a living. So construction started in 1988 in one of the most magical parts of Guatemala, the rocky shore of Lake Atitlán. Using primarily local materials, they built a welcoming place for the family and visitors from around the world.

Finally, La Casa del Mundo Hotel opened in 1997. Bill, Rosy, and their children lived there for several years, enjoying the company of their guests while providing warm hospitality and adding creative touches to the interiors. Today, Rosy and Bill commute to La Casa del Mundo and continue to enjoy running and working at the hotel.
