Our nearest airport is Guatemala City, 2.5 hours (+ traffic) $100 for 2 passengers in a private car from the port town of Panajachel. From there it is a 10 minute public ferry or private boat ride to the hotel. For information, please contact us by email.

I’m not from the resort but have been there... Tikal is at the top of the country and Lake Atitlan is towards the bottom so they are like a 12 hour drive away I believe. I did see transportation services in Panajachel that had trips there but if you wanted to do both locations I think it’s best to just have two legs of your trip

Hi Nancy - We have solo travelers (some women) all the time. Guatemala, especially in the tourist areas like the lake, Antigua, Tikal, Lanquin are all safe and easily accessible for tourism. I lived here as a single woman before opening the hotel and never had a problem.

Hi. we responded to you personally. There are great hikes at the lake, ATVing isn’t really a thing here - more about nature, hiking, kayaking, visiting local towns with lots of culture and history. There are 11 local villages and so many hiking options. 5 days is really great. If you have more time visit Antigua, Coban and/or Flores & Tikal.

You can also arrange for a private boat taxi with the owners, but if the weather is bad they won’t go out on the lake. We also were in bed by 9, it’s so relaxing. But if you want nightlife I wouldn’t recommend this place, even though it’s magical.
