This delightful cottage nestles you among fruit trees and aromatic herbs. The breathtaking view of Lake Atitlan is seen from every window. It is quiet, safe, and close to San Marcos. It is also Eco friendly, off the grid, and has pristine lake front with private beach and spacious private dock area.

Strategically located, it's very easy to go to and from close by villages using public water transportation. Walking to San Marcos is good with no bags.

El alojamiento
This cottage is located on a Permaculture garden, facing all three of the lake's astounding volcanoes making it a sensational view. We have 10 appropriate technologies successfully in use, also called eco or sustainable technologies.

The cottage is spacious with epic views from all social areas and bedroom. Has a loft bedroom with a queen bed and a single bed. The energy of the place is very special, the light coming in is abundant and well distributed. It has well thought details in the design and decoration. We have two female cats, Rosita and Ambar (daughter and mother) they are vey affectionate cats, but not allowed to sleep in or spend time inside any of the three guest houses: Cozy Cabin, Eco Cottage or Eco Nest.

The kitchen is well furnished and stocked with more than basic cooking equipment, no refrigerator, great natural illumination, has a gas stove with working oven.

Bathroom is inside on the first floor, it has a solar heater on the roof for hot showers and a neat and friendly dry composting toilet.

The Permaculture garden of exotic and local varieties is located on terraces through out the property. You will find nice areas to rest, read, or walk as you discover our food forest.

The dock is a great place to jump for a refreshing swim or to hang out, watch sunrises, sunsets and stargaze. You can see Fuego Volcano erupting at the distance (50 Km away in a strait line). Some times at night you can see lava! Our lake front (45 meters), offers access to a pebbled beach with some big rocks; there is a place for bonfires in the beach.

The price listed is for two people Additional guests will be charged $ 25 per person per day (maxium 4 guests in total, including children from 1 year of age).

Acceso para huéspedes
As a guest, you will have access to our private dock, gardens, organic herbs from the garden, rain-caught filtered drinking water, fruits in season on the property. You may enjoy amazing sunrises and sunsets from your windows or any where in the garden and dock.

The lake in Pasajkap has pristine waters and it's wonderful to swim and paddle, we have a Cayuco, a Mayan wooden canoe for our guests to enjoy.

We have a Temascal, a modern Maya sauna bath. It's best to take it in the afternoon before 4:00pm if you want any of our collaborators to start and take care of the fire while you have your bath. If you want to have it later on, you will start and care for the fire. We charge USD $10 or Q75.

I personally provide some classes or workshops: Spanish, watercolor, probiotics/kombucha and Guatemalan indigenous cuisine.

Otros aspectos destacables
Our place is very quiet to enjoy the solace of nature. Bird watching and star gazing is lovely.

As mentioned previously we are entirely an off the grid, environmentally friendly endeavor and we take that commitment seriously by providing an alternative, sustainable way of living. We do this by using solar heated showers, the use of collected rain water, dry composting toilets, producing organic fertilizers, and employing permaculture techniques.

Sololá, Guatemala

This neighborhood is particularly beautiful with clear and clean waters in which you can swim (mornings are the best), amazing sun rises and sunsets, and phenomenal views of all three volcanoes. It is safe and close to San Marcos (4 minutes by boat)

The area is called Pasajkap, located bordering Tzununa. Only 20 minutes by boat to San Pedro.

From San Pedro there are a number of tour operators who offer hikes to San Pedro Volcano, The Mayan nose, San Pablo and Tzununa waterfalls, San Marcos forest. For visitors with enough time, shuttle companies may take you to the outstanding IRTRA Water Parks in Retalhuleu, these are theme parks specially great for kids.

Rock climbing, mountain bike and hand-gliding and other extreme sports are available in the area.

Santa Clara Saturday's Indigenous Market. Culturally interesting site to understand traditional Maya markets, you can buy everything from cooked food and produce, tools, fire wood, to live animals, like chickens and pigs, medicinal plants and clothing (there is a special area for used Mayan clothing, where you may find amazing old traditional Maya textiles: pure cotton, preciously hand crafted, lasso bags, leather shoes etc).

In San Marcos there are very good restaurants, just walk around and ask to find food from Guatemala, to international, Italian, Oriental foods

There is also a large selection of holistic treatments with therapists providing a variety of alternative healing modalities.

San Marcos is also known for spirituality workshops, breath work, activities, classes and retreats on the subjects of self discovery, healing, wellness and holistic lifestyle.

San Marcos is known as a hub for appropriate technologies for healing and well being practices, including organic gardening and soil conservation practices and a variety of nutritious foods: preserves, probiotics, goat cheese (also in Hotel Bambu in Tzununa) and different kinds of breads (sour dough, sprouted grains, whole wheat) and corn tortillas including blue corn hand made tortillas.

Looking for a healing experience, I recommend my daughter Mariu, who, in my humble opinion, holds the gift of healing. As a well studied and trained independent therapist, she offers a variety of therapies and treatments, workshops, and products (brand name Amathista) to enhance quality life. You may contact Mariu through me or via fb Mariu Gobbato.

If you are interested in old (used) Maya textiles be sure to visit Panajachel on market days (Tuesdays and Fridays) and go to the Fire Station's parking lot, where numerous vendors, specially women put up their booths and spaces with great options, some times even museum quality textiles.

There are good restaurants in San Marcos: For vegetarian cuissine, visit La Paz and Il Giardino, for international food: Moon Fish, Fe or Aculax (Lush), for Japanees food visit Seiko, for on the go visit Shambala, Hostal del Lago. There is always new places coming up so take some time to walk around the village of San Marcos.

Please pay a visit to Nectar, a lovely Art Cafe and the only all-organic cuisine with the best coffee or tea in town. It is located 30 feet west from Hotel La Paz, in the first floor of the two-story building to the left.

For a more cultural type visits, go to San Juan, it is the cleanest village around the Lake, has the largest student population and women's textile coops, interesting art galleries, Maya ceremonies, medicinal plants and organic veggies.
