Domingo took me on an amazing combined home-stay and hiking trip. I got to stay with two different families — and experience their culture first-hand. It was really interesting to see their day-to-day life, meet their extended families, and to share meals with them.

The hiking was spectacular and pretty challenging — some pretty steep drops down to the lake, but worth every step, because the views were amazing.

We also went to caves where Mayan rituals were taking place — really interesting! And we went to a local market where there was not a tourist in sight.

If you want to experience the REAL Lake Atitlan, this is it!

Plus, the Guatemalan family that runs this company is lovely. It’s a real family enterprise: they manage a hotel, run a language school, and run the tour business, too. If you’re lucky, you can even do a home-stay with their extended family up the hill in Santa Cruz — that’s what I did!
