About Hotel El Sol

Lake Atitlan is world renowned for its beauty, the three volcanoes and the misty blue water unfolds one of the world's most scenic lake views. Panajachel is one of the 12 villages that surround this magical location in the heart of the Mayan highlands. The Mayan population around the lake have their own traditions and offer healings, mayan-ceremonies, and guided tours to visitors. You can visit most villages easiest by public boats (in 15-30 min.) and enjoy a local restaurant, ziplines, horseback riding, swimming, canoeing, hiking, mountain climbing, volcano climbing, paragliding and painting or weaving classes for example.

In Panajachel you can learn Spanish in one of the many school that are available, visit the archeological museum, indigenous market, the lake-boulevard or the "Santander", the main center for shopping, dining and nightlife. Panajachel is the central hub of Lake Atitlan. You will find all major Guatemalan banks here, ATM machines, supermarkets, doctors, travel agencies and restaurants. Panajachel is a good base for exploring other parts of the country because of its central location in Guatemala. We can assist you in booking trips to visit Chichicastenango, Antigua, Tikal, Monterrico, Copán (Honduras), and many other Mayan or colonial sites in and around Guatemala.
