Description

Comment: Not closed. See the neighbour, they have the keys. 80 gtq {G150 @June 2018) per day for 2 people with camper van.

Nice resort with great grassy camping area. Gorgeous view of Lake Atitlan and the volcanoes San Pedro, Toliman and Atitlan. There's a pool (can be empty) and restrooms near the camping area. Price 60 Quetzales for two persons and a smal motorhome.
Turns to swamp in rainy conditions.

Beautiful view of the lake. About 10 minutes walking to the town. As mentionned in the other comments, it's dirty for the price you pay (75Q per person). If you do not need the pool, the toilets and shower, it's fine.

This is a really fabulous place to camp while exploring Lake Atitlán. It is a quick tuk-tuk ride to Panajachel, where you can catch a collectivo water taxi to anywhere on the lake for Q15-25. The hotel has a restaurant (doesn’t open until 6 pm on Monday and Tuesday). The alfredo is really good. Price is Q60/person if you stay 5 nights or more. Most importantly, it’s stunningly beautiful and mostly peaceful. We were the only overlanders other than @matugatu4x4 (who we planned to camp with). There were some tent campers on the weekend. There was one loud and late event on the weekend. But the rest of the week was quite quiet. Other amenities to mention: there is an outdoor kitchen with a sink for dishes. There are two bathrooms with very cold showers, but the men’s showers ended up not being operable. The hotel said they would open a room so we could shower, but we never took them up on it. There is a good-sized swimming pool that’s fairly clean. And there’s a playground with swings and a slide that our son loved, plus some climbing trees. I will say that the event guests always trashed the place, so the kitchen and bathrooms were often quite dirty. The staff came around eventually to clean. I know there’s another campground in San Marcos, but it sounds super crowded. I didn’t want to leave this beautiful place. I think it’s special.

Bel endroit, Herbe verte et belle vue. Cependant la piscine est sale, les toilettes et douches impraticable. La wifi est très mauvaise. C’est beau mais cher. Le personnel est gentil. Mitigée

Stayed here 3 nights. Beautiful view right at the water. Friendly staff and walking distance (but steep!) to the public lanchas so you can explore other areas around the lake. Showers and bathrooms were not as bad as expected. Some trash laying around and very spotty Wifi. All in all a good location to stay and check out the area...

Great looking spot, grassy field, soccer field adjacent, restaurant across the street. Easy to take a tuk tuk into Pana. We did not camp here but drove by it several times per day and I wish we would have. Next time!

The view and the landscaped property are beautiful. The showers and bathrooms are sub-par. For the price, the bathrooms and showers should be better. It was good to have the van in a secure location while exploring. Also, the staff was very welcoming and kind. Once done exploring though…If you are self contained, check out the football field/parking on the other side of town which is free.

Stayed here for one night. 75 quetzals per Person. The spot is very nice and right in front of the lake but they Pool and the bathrooms are dirty.

At some sites there is electricity.

Don’t come here on weekends, there is a party/wedding location right next to the campground. It could be loud at night.

If you like disgusting showers,toilets, the smell of horse pee and don't mind becoming a part of a wedding or birthday party (because this is what this place is used for by the hotel), this is your place to be. Despite the view to the lake, you become nothing more for your 75 Qtz. p.P.

We stayed here for three weeks with our truck camper and a dog. Beautiful view of the lake, reasonably priced (100 Q a night) (Attention, a Carlos wanted to pay us only 150Q, at the reception it costs only 100 Q). Wifi went more times less well, just like electricity. Bathroom very simple, we were allowed to take a warm shower in guest rooms. Super friendly people. Stayed a few days in San Pedro and left the camper (50 Q a night). A bit muddy in the rainy season. Yes, also a lot of garbage. The guests (on weekends there is a lot going on) leave everything standing and lying down, even on the shore a lot of garbage.

Report Check-In

Full of garbage when we were here. With garbage came dogs barking at the van. At the free spot there’s no dogs barking and much less garbage. Also the super expensive at 150 for the van for one night.

We stayed here! We had our own little nook over looking the lake. Went for a dip, we were with a few other overlanders... we would recommend it!

Some say the showers are dirty... I don’t think so. My standards aren’t low... I am just happy to have clean water- I found it rather basic and refreshing if anything. Seemed to me like they were maintaining the property well.

Hope you get to enjoy it too!!

Still the same comments for us. $75pp is a bit high, but I guess the view makes up for it?!you can use electricity and they let us shower in one of the rooms. Good food in the restaurant; we had shrimp and crepes!, Good location. Friendly guys

This place has an incredible view, you can park on the grass close to the lake. It’s 75Qpp and that’s to expensive because the toilets and the showers are disgusting. It’s sad they have a place with a lot of possibilities but cleaning the toilet is to much work for them. I talked with them and I used the toilet in the hotel. Don’t go back thetoilets is to m

Bahia de Atitlan Inn the right name now - they have new owner at the place. The place is nice and the view is incredible nice. You park right at the lake. The price is 75Q/pp and have to pay for the kids as well. There is electricity and water as well. Swimming pool and playground for the kids. Basic amnities but they have outside shower.

Great spot for camping right on the lake. Price was 75Q per person. Quiet and relaxing. They have bathrooms and showers, as well as a small beach that you can access from the camp. Short walk to town!

Guided by IOverlander update we came to Bahia Del Lago to find a place to park and camp with rooftent.
We paid 60 Q to stay here for one night or 2 pearsons and a SUV with tent. Could use showers, water, toillets and electricity. Even good wifi at the hotel lobby.
You park and camp on a grassy place with a perfect view of the lake.
This place is reached when you come down the road, before you reach the city. It is a little road maybee 500 meters before The town. A good reference is the entrance of a big resort.
Yo can use also the pool if you ask.

nice place, big green area, next to the lake, with water and electricity. amenities are nothing extra but the pool is ok and they charged a reasonable price (60/adult, kids free).

Achtung! Totaler Drecksplatz. Toiletten und Duschen unbenutzbar, weil kein Wasser da ist. Kein WiFi, Pool unbenutzbar, weil ungepflegt und grün, Platz mit viel Müll. Aber uns wurde die volle Summe von 75 Q p.P. abgenommen. Diskussion zwecklos. Lieber 300 m weiter fahren!!!

We visited this spot, there is other manager and the price is Q 150/night. He saw the price no negotiable. We don't stay.

We stayed here for 4 nights. It's a really good place with an awesome view on the lake. They now ask for 150q/night to sleep that we strongly negotiated for 80q/night.
The site is full of trash. It's now 3 young people who only speak Spanish who manage the site. They do nothing to clean and they are super lazy! The pool is very green. We took a shower on the lake so we didn't try showers here. We asked if they had something to dump and they bring us to the corner of the site. You can refill you tank. Be careful hard mosquitoes.
Recommended for the view but site not well managed !

Very nice place to stay, one of the best we have stay in Guatemala. The owner is an american lady, so if its close, just ring the bell at the big house. We paid 150 q/night for a 24 feet rv, and we had plenty space to choose. They also give you electricity, water, clean bathrooms in the hotel across the street, and hot shower. They also have a pool and an amazing view to the lake. 10 min walking from the town and the boats.

Report Check-In

stay here for 3 nights. you need to ring the bell by the neighbors they will open the gate. they wanted 150Qz.per night but after negotiate we paid the normal price 80Qz. the grassy area is big and direct on the Lake. nice view. the bathroom very dirty and showers are cold. this 3 guys who worked here are friendly but very sloth. if they do more it will be a nice campsite.

Large grassy area. Bathrooms not so bad. Cold showers. Able to refill our water. Could plug in if needed. Picked up week WiFi signal from main house. Wedding on Saturday, police party on Tuesday. But we were tucked under trees out of the way of both. Paid 80q per night after some haggling. Hard to beat the views from here.

No rain so the place was beautiful. Big grassy area, we parked under a palmtree. Paid 100Q per night, they provided us an extension to use electricity. The toilets were not the cleanest, but they were ok. Nice pool and views of the lake and volcanoes.

DISGUSTING bathrooms! there were a lot of young guys "working" there while we were there. they made us feel very unwelcoming and stared at us all the time.

Unfortunatly this meadow is a swamp right now at the end of the rainy season. Last week they had to tow out an overlander with a grua.

The view is stunning and the people are very nice and helpful. The asking price is 100 Q per night now, after negotiations we agreed on 80Q. Bathroom are still in bad conditions!

Do Not attempt to camp if it has rained for more than one day! The grassy area turns into a mud flied and you will get stuck. We have an F350 with good all terrain tires and got stuck. We had to pay 1500Q to get pulled out by a big rig tow truck.

This campground is now definitively closed. Buildings were left open and were empty of all furniture. Park is overgrown with vegetation.Gates were locked with chains and deadbolt. Too bad, because this is a gorgeous property.

Report Check-In

I don't think the bathrooms are that bad. Bring your own TP. The view sure beats a parking lot, and the price sure beats that expensive place. It's all locked up when you arrive, but shortly after pulling up to the gate a man greeted us. Due to the mixed reviews we looked around first. Bathrooms are clean enough. Seen WAY worse. The water was not on, but they had it running in no time. The huge grass lot with amazing views is very tranquil all day and night. you don't need to ask about electricity. There is a plug on every large tree in the lot. The pool looked clean, but we didn't try. There is a gazebo with a big cooking grill, and large sink for dishes. We also washed our clothes in it too. He asked 80Q we paid 60Q, and if you plan to stay more then a night I'm sure you could keep talking him down more. Tigo works great 4G.

We returned to this spot and was disappointed to see the place is really starting to run down. Nothing is being maintained, the hotel/restaurant has been closed down. The grounds need work, the bathrooms are neglected. BUT the view and location is still spectacular! I hope someone takes on this project and restores it. We were quoted 80 Q for one night with electric. After negotiating, he accepted 60 Q happily. Quiet, windy, and beautiful.

Pro: great view + cheap + walking distance to pana

Cons: really disgusting bathroom, pool not maintained (do not(!) let your kids go into the pool, they will get sick for sure), no wifi, very agressive bugs/mosquities

Next time we would either go to San Marcos (even though the road down there is really bad) or we pay the higher price at Hotel Tzanjuju which is 500m away from Bahia del Lago.

Report Check-In

Place is going downhill... Since the lat time we stayed here showers and bath rooms have gone worse. Smelly and bit dirty.. Also the swimming pool probably infected us with a bug since two of our grouo of four went sick and fellow travellers reported the same symptoms. The view is still breathtaking though, we were allowed to make a nice bonfire and the price of 60 QTZ is reasonable (as long as you don't use the pool;)). Hopefully they will upgrade the property while remodelling of the hotel is being done, looking forward to future updates on this place.

Camped here for the second time. Camping area is still open however the hotel is now closed while remodeling. You need to talked to the owners at the white house across the hotel next to the pool/camping area so they can let you in. Be aware of the prices listed on iOverlander. We just corrected them. There's no more internet access and showers are now cold. Still a great spot to camp at with great views

Report Check-In

The restaurant and hotel are closed at the moment due to change of ownership. However, there is a guard while the people in the white house next door have the key to the camping ground and take the fee. It is a great site with awesome views over the lake and very close to Panajachel. We stayed 14 days here. Bugs are a bit of a nuisance early morning and evening but jeans and Johnson's "Off" keep them at bay. No wifi, but very good wifi in Panajachel

Beautiful but expensive spot right on the lake. 50q per person per night but since were 3 cars and 6 people, we were able to negotiate them down to 33q per car (which you only have to pay one time). Bathrooms with hot showers, wifi, electricity at sites, and awesome view of the volcanos. Restaurant onsite, as well.

Nice resort with great grassy camping area. Gorgeous view of Lake Atitlan and the volcanoes San Pedro, Toliman and Atitlan. There's a pool and restrooms near the camping area. Pricey in our opinion. 50 Quetzales per person per day plus 50 Quetzales per vehicle the first day. It came to 150 Quetzales the first day and 100 the second day.

Report Check-In

At 75Q per person with an additional charge of 50Q for the vehicle very much not worth the money. Nice view though. We were there when there was a large group visiting so bathrooms were a mess and there was rubbish everywhere but people had already begun cleaning up when we left in the morning, so suspect it is usually pretty well maintained.

Breathtaking view of the volcanos from a great campsite. Although the sand flies are kind of annoying, we still stayed almost two weeks. 100 Q per night (50 pp and first night 50 for the truck) and good internet.

You can't ask for a better view. The biting flies are bad, but only during certain times of the day, if you wear long pants it's not much of a problem. Pool & playground for kiddos. The showers are hot, but you must make sure the lights are switched on and only turn the water knob a small amount. Bargain for a better rate the longer you stay.

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.
