La Fortuna At Atitlán - Impressive Lakes And Volcanoes In GuatemalaLa Fortuna  
at Atitlán

Formed by prehistoric volcanic activity, Lago de Atitlán or Lake Atitlán is one of the most magnificent tourist destinations in Highland, Guatemala. Situated about three hours west of Guatemala City, the aquamarine waters glisten beneath the impressive volcanoes and fertile hills that encompass it. A dozen towns are skirting the lake, each with its own personality; however, Panajachel is the usual starting point for exploring the landscape.

While many visitors choose to stay in the larger hotels or hostels, La Fortuna at Atitlán offers a surprising and spectacular alternative. Positioned on the secluded bay of Patzisotz, this nano-boutique hotel can be reached in only five minutes by boat from Panajachel. Carved from the jungle, La Fortuna provides only five bungalows from where you can take in the spectacular scenery and relax amid the lush tropical gardens. The hotel operates with sustainability in mind using only solar energy, a private water treatment system, local construction materials, and décor created by local craftsmen.

Since the hotel only offers four bungalows, it can offer personalized service that puts other hotel staff to shame. Each suite comes fully stocked with fresh fruit, nuts, water, board games, and outdoor bathrooms with a garden view and rain shower. The larger suites provide a king-size bed and a sitting area on the second floor. The petite bungalows include a double bed with a lofted sing bunk directly above it. No matter which room you choose, all your stress melts away as you are engulfed by the tranquility of the jungle.

During your time at Lake Atitlán, La Fortuna at Atitlán is the perfect launching point for your highland explorations.
