Lakeside Villages and Relaxation

8 Day Guatemala Itinerary

My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed this lakeside getaway by Lake Atitlan. We stayed in amazing places and will be using Anywhere again as we explore more of Central America!

Lakeside serenity…

This was the quintessential lakeside relaxation getaway my wife and I had been looking forward to. We spent eight glorious days lounging by the scenic views of Lake Atitlan and exploring different villages around the area. We first stayed at Laguna Lodge in Santa Cruz La Laguna, a secluded lodge that is only accessible by boat! The interior was beautiful, and we could tell it was inspired by all the natural beauty around it, using volcanic stones and local wood as the main material. We also enjoyed doing the excursion through Atitlan Natural Reserve. The wildlife here seemed at peace with the locals and the tourists.

The history and sights of Antigua…

For the last two days of our trip, we stayed at Antigua to experience a more busy city life. Casa Santo Domingo is AMAZING — we loved seeing the ancient monastery ruins that are integrated into the property. The museums are interesting and a great way to learn about the history of the city.

The reason we’ll be back again!

This vacation was thoroughly relaxing and we loved it. Claudia did an amazing job arranging all the transportation and recommending these lodgings. We would love to explore more of Central America, and would definitely use Anywhere again for it!
