This 15-bedroom retreat on the shores of Lake Atitlan is a rare and special experience. The house was once a family home, and Casa Palopo has not lost touch with its warm welcome. Rooms are decorated with brightly coloured textiles that reflect the charm and colour of Guatemala. The bedrooms are all individually furnished with their own sense of Guatemalan identity. The views of the lake and volcano peaks beyond are mesmerising, and the changing colours of the lake will captivate you for hours.
We love the Palopo Villa with its three spacious bedrooms and private pool overlooking the lake. This is a great option for families or small groups of friends, and the villa comes with a kitchen and private staff, including a chef and host. Bird-watching, hiking into the mountains, kayaking and boat trips can all be arranged ahead of your visit and exploring the markets is a must when you are here. Casa Palopo encapsulates the spiritual essence of Guatemala in all its colours and the warmth of its people.
