Come join us at picturesque Lake Atitlan in the highlands of Guatemala
or contact us to arrange a workshop in your area.

Atitlan

The lake is about a two and a half hour drive from Guatemala City or Antigua. Most arrive at the lake in Panajachel and stay in a hotel there or take a boat to other hotels on the lake.

Getting to Panajachel is easy. Travelers usually fly into Guatemala City and go directly to Antigua, where, they spend a night (or more) before coming to the lake. Once in Panajachel most of our retreats are held in small Mayan villages around the lake, accessible by boat.

It would be a shame to come to the lake and not visit other Mayan villages around the lake and the famous Mayan market in Chichicastenango.

The combination of being about 15 degrees above the equator and 1560 meters (5100 ft.) above sea level makes for an ideal climate. It's never uncomfortably cold or hot. The rainy season lasts from May to October, but the sun does shine some almost every day. Indeed for most of us who live here year round the rainy season is our favorite time of year.
