This is truly a cultural center, emphasizing contemporary interests rather than focusing on Maya history. It was founded in 1948 by the wife of a Swiss diplomat, and is now privately owned. Casa Cakchiquel hosts several community projects, including a weaving collective, a radio station,...More

We spent one night in the cozy, clean, and newly renovated room overlooking the patio and had breakfast at the on-site cafe. Not the cheapest option, but of good quality and safe-feeling. Friendly service and an interesting location, 5 mins walk from the lakeshore and...More
