Lake Atitlan

Jump to last reply

Has anyone ever stayed at the Aaculaax or Villa Sumaya? I am a woman traveling solo and speak very little Spanish. I like the idea of San Marcos because of the village, yoga etc.. but Villa Sumaya looks amazing.

1. Are both these villages equally safe and easy to get around? Also, I love to hike and if it's not really that safe are guides easy to find or are there any organized hikes?

2. Is it pretty easy to catch a boat 'taxi' during the day to visit other villages?

3. Will I be able to make a 1pm flight leaving Guatamala if I'm staying somewhere on the lake, or will I need to stay in Antigua or Guatamala City the night before?

I'm sure I'll have lots of other questions, but this will help me get started. Also, if anyone has any other suggestions of places to stay, I would really appreciate it.

Thanks,

Monica
