Lake Villa Guatemala

About This Center

Our spectacular location is on the shore of Lake Atitlán, at the base of Toliman volcano in the highlands of Guatemala. This area is home to the Tz'utujil Maya. 

All of our retreats are custom designed for you, and include 100% vegan meals, tours of Lake Atitlán, introduction to local culture, and kayaking. Our specialized retreats include vegan cooking workshops, weight loss, and a deeper look at Mayan culture and spiritual practices. Many of our guests participate in a healing Mayan fire ceremony.

If you are ready to disconnect from the stresses of a busy life, I highly recommend the Lake Villa Guatemala. It is one of the most peaceful places on the planet. - Bill from Puerto Rico

Venue Highlights

All of our retreats are private, so your tours and other experiences are one-on-one.

Towns in Guatemala can be quite noisy, but our center is on the private and tranquil south shore of Lake Atitlán. Unlike other locations around the lake, here you won't find the firecrackers, barking dogs, roosters, and loud boats. We are an oasis of peace and quiet.


Our two spacious bedrooms each have private bathrooms, including toiletries and plush towels. The Lake View room features a private entrance, two queen beds, and high quality bedding. The Garden View room features a king bed and a double bed with high quality bedding and satellite TV.

Our common areas include two spacious living areas, large patios, gorgeous gardens, and a private beach area.
