It's a beautiful region as well as a good base to explore National Park Chapada dos Veadeiros and surroundings.

A good place to spend the night but more to visit the Tamar project which by far and large is not as touristic as f.e. Praia Forte (Bahia). Between Dec-March turtles lay their eggs here and there is a hatchery as well.

Hotel Vision Azull has a fantastic location right on the shores of Lago de Atitlan. We were a little bit surprised that the prices had increased from what was mentioned in the Church & Church book, but it looked as the new owner had done some upgrading. It is just outside town, but not more than about 10-15 minutes walk.

Price: 150 quetzales
