Mayan Home Stays has started this home stay program in the village to give something back to the communities around Lake Atitlan, and also to give you a very genuine experience of living with a Maya local 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 breakfast and dinner meals at home with the family. (Both are included in the price). Dinner included in the price

Check in:
Monday - Saturday: 08:00 am - 20:00 pm
Sundays: 09:00 a.m - 18:00 p.m

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

Important: Once you arrive to our Meeting point main office in the City Center of Panajachel we will take you or let you know how to get to San Jorge La Laguna which is only 10-12 minutes away from Panajachel center. Don't expect to stay in Panajachel center, you will stay where the locals live in a very safe neighborhood.

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 2 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 and Jorge Jiatz Pocop.

You can also contact Marvelus Travel Adventure Travel Network and they will help you organize this great experience.

We hope that you enjoy this very unique experience.
