- Encounters with locals
Every time I went to Santa Catarina Palopo, I felt a more immediate contact with nature than in other places at Lake Atitlan. You find great peace there and it's a place where you can recharge your batteries - whether you're a local or whether you need a break during your trip to Guatemala.
From this village, you can enjoy one of the most beautiful views in the area over the lake and its volcanoes. The village has several charming hotels and eco-hotels, the luxurious option being to stay in a beautiful hotel, where the least expensive room costs... $154. But if you're able to do it, it's worth it!
