While exploring the towns of Lake Atitlan, I first needed to figure out where to stay in Panajachel. I made this my hub city my base and made my myself at home at the Los Volcanes Hotel. This family owned and operated hotel proved to be the best place to explore Lake Atitlan and beyond from. Here’s why:
Modest yet Comfortable
Upon first look, the Los Volcanes doesn’t jump out at you. There is little curb appeal, making it is easy to miss walking along the main strip. Don’t let this deter you. Inside, the rooms are small with dated colors and functional furniture. That said, it ticked all my boxes whiled searching for where to stay in Panajachel. Rooms are cool, clean, comfortable, and the decks on each floor make for a relaxing spot to reflect on the day or play a round of cards with friends.
What really sets the Posada de Los Volcanes Hotel apart from others in Panajachel is the family feel to it. We quickly felt at home with friends instead of at a hotel. Julio organized everything from our day trip to Chichicastenagro to laundry service and was always quick to help with suggestions on where to eat and what to do next. Then there was the home cooked breakfast each morning – the best I had while in Central America. Order the homemade granola with fresh fruit. Be warned, it’s massive.
As with any hotel, location plays a huge part in enjoying it. The Posada de Los Volcanes hotel is ideally located along Calle Santander, home to the town’s best restaurants, shops, and street vendors. Also, following this road for a couple minutes will lead you to the shores of Lake Atitlan and to one of the best spots to enjoy the sunset over it.
Again, ticking all the boxes of where to stay in Panajachel and then some.
If all this isn’t enough to convince to sell you on the Posada de Los Volcanes when searching for where to Stay in Panajachel, Paco, the resident parrot, certainly should.
I mean, come on.
