Descrizione della struttura

San Jorge La Laguna has started this home stay program in the village to give something back to the communities around Lake Atitlan, also to give you a very genuine experience of living with a Maya family to experience their culture and customs.

Meals in the home will be prepared by the mother of the family and you will have the opportunity to enjoy dinner and breakfast meals at home with the family. (Both are included in the price).

Check in:
Monday - 4:00 PM
Sundays: 4:00 PM

This is very appassionated since we need to allocate you with the family where you will sleep!

Public transportation to the Home Stay is 4 Quetzales each way. (Around $0.50 USD)

Where will I stay?
During your trip you can stay one ore more nights with a family from the ethnic group of the Kakchiquel in San Jorge La Laguna.

This experience is runs for 14 years to the village and families who welcome foreigners into their homes. As a responsible traveler, we as guests must be aware of and sensitive to the culture by behaving respectfully during our time with the family and in the village.

Although shy at first, the villagers are very friendly and welcoming people.

The home stay will give you a genuine insight into the everyday lives of a local family. If you take photos of the people in the village, please always ask before you take them.

You might find the housing situation in San Jorge La Laguna rather basic but the reason for doing this home stay is to give a real insight into Guatemala, so you can experience the culture firsthand and interact with the local community on a personal basis.

The coordinators of the home stay program in San Jorge La Laguna are Daniel Jiatz Pocop.

We hope that you enjoy this very unique experience.

Staying with Anselmo and family was a memorable, life-changing experience. Choose this if you want to get to know the real Guatemala and the simple life in a Maya village. San Jorge la Laguna is very safe at least at daytime and you'll probably be the only tourist in town. I could have endless conversations (in Spanish) with the family about their life and my life back home: two completely different worlds. Only warning: this is not where you want to stay if you're going partying in Pana.

10/10 would recommend doing this!! Booked to stay with Anselmo and Petrona and their family, we received a tour of the town from their son Robinson, as well as dinner, coffee and a live performance on the marimba to which we were taught Guatemaltecan dances. A very fun evening and a very personal way to get to know the local culture. We also were giving the chance to wear traditional clothing and learn the native language. The bedrooms were cleaner than most hostels I’ve been to. For the price you pay it’s
