Julio and Jeanette, your hosts at Posada de los Volcanes, have built a hotel that offers the advantages of being on a tour (without actually having to be on one) on top of all the ammenities of a quality hotel.
The hotel staff will meet you at the airport in Guatemala City (or anywhere else for that matter) and bring you to Panajachel. They can be you're personal guides or help you find a small tour that will, for example, take you to the "Curandero" (medicine man) cave to see Mayan rituals, or to Chichicastenango on market days.
The best part is that you can have the security your vacation will be interesting and comfortable, without having to go everywhere and do everything with fifty other foreigners.
The rooms are absolutely clean and sanitary. All have private bathrooms, hot water and cable TV with a number of English channels. There is even a German and an Italian channel. The hotel is close to the beach. Panajachel's finest restaurants are a short walk away. The boats to the various other towns on the lake are likewise nearby.
Single occupancy from US$40.00
