This is one of our petite bungalows. Its quite small but beautifully handcrafted. It is ideal for a single traveler, a couple or good friends. This bungalow is highest up on our property, but is my favourite as it has an amazing live tree growing in the bathroom which has orchids growing on it. It also has a front porch, and secondary sitting area. During the rain season there is a waterfall behind it and you can hear the water running.

The space
Located on the shores of Lake Atitlán under the San Pedro, Atitlán, and Toliman volcanoes, La Fortuna at Atitlan is tucked into the private bay of Patzisotz, only a 5 minute boat ride from Panajachel. Here you can relax in our lush jungle and gardens, and take in the view of Central America’s most spectacular lake. We have two bungalow suites with king size beds, and luxurious private spa like outdoor garden bathrooms with hot tubs, and two regular bungalows with a queen bed and single, and private luxurious garden bathrooms. Breakfast and dinner is available. Hiking, kayaking, scuba diving, and exploring the indigenous villages around the lake can be organized through the lodge. Come and experience the natural and cultural wonder of Lago Atitlán at La Fortuna in Guatemala's most beautiful tourist destination. Suites are $149 a night, and regular rooms are $99 US. High season rates may be slightly higher (December and Holy Week). We are the only hotel on a private bay - and attract lots of birds including nesting herons because of the tranquility and being off the beaten track.

We have a lake front hot tub and free wi-fi on the property for all guests to enjoy.

Please note that this location is not ideal for those with mobility issues or small children (no children under 12 years of age).

Guest access
This petite bungalow is the highest up on the property so there are many uneven stairs. This is not suitable for any guests with mobility issues. We are only accessible by boat. The public boats pass our private bay coming from Panajachel the port town (5 minutes away) between 6:45 and 7:30pm daily. This ride costs 10q a person and the boats pass every 15 to 20 minutes. You can also arrange a private boat here from Panajachel for $15 US for 2 passengers

Other things to note
We love to host happy guests, and we feel that total transparency makes for happy guests. We are located in a private bay with no foot or road access to a town. It's easy to catch a boat during the day to visit other towns, but if you are looking to party in a village you will have to arrange a private boat after 7:30pm. Also we are located in the jungle - nature so you will see insects such as spiders, flies, butterflies, etc. They are no dangerous but they do live here and we are guests in their home. We are on off-grid 100% solar powered hotel so we also like to remind our guests that our power is limited. We have power almost all the time, and it's fine to charge telephones, computers and use lights, but high powered devices such as hair dryers, curling irons, straighteners kill our deep cycle batteries and you potentially will knock out the power for the entire property - including our wifi.

Location

Santa Cruz la Laguna, Solola, Guatemala

We are about a 7 minute boat ride from Panajachel the port town on the lake. There are many ATMs, grocery stores, bars and restaurants as well as artisan shops here. On the other side of our bay is Santa Cruz. It is one of the smaller villages on the lake but has a fantastic local culinary school, some great hikes, bars and restaurants. It is a 5 minute boat ride away from us.

Steve and Kat met while travelling and working in Latin America, fell in love, and then fell in love with Guatemala. Inspired by the balinese style bungalows discovered on a backpacking trip through South East Asia in 2009, Steve dreamed up La Fortuna. Steve has worked in the tourism industry for the past 5 years, while Katharine has spent many years working in government to protect the environment .Combining their two passions, they have created an ecological haven on Lago Atitlan, one of the most beautiful lakes in the world. All materials used in construction have been locally grown and crafted, while maintaining the most minimal impact on the environment. All electricity is generated by solar power.
