Beschrijving van de Accomodatie Inrichting

Come join us under the volcanoes! La Iguana Perdida has been an oasis on the shores of Lake Atitlan for over twenty years now offering memories to travellers both young and old while maintaining commitment to community, the environment, and the betterment of our village of Santa Cruz La Laguna. We are your home away from home whether you come here to learn to dive, hike the trails, study Spanish, experience Mayan culture or simply lie in a hammock with a paperback or enjoy doing nothing at all.

Our rooms range from simple to downright luxurious, so whether you are travelling with a hand-me-down backpack or a shiny new roley bag we have got something for you. We have got three dormitories with 22 beds in total, several single/double rooms with shared bath facilities nearby, and ten more modern rooms with private bath and hot water. Many of our rooms and common areas have fantastic lake views as we are located right on the waterfront.

Check-in goes from 2PM till 8PM. Please note that in case of no message from your part and if we have not seen you before 8PM, we reserve the right to sell the room to another party.

Our lakefront restaurant is open from 8AM - 4PM daily offering breakfasts & lunches aimed to satisfy the hungry traveler. Egg dishes, crepes, fruit, sandwiches, salads and our famous licuados are just some of the options you can choose from. We make as much as humanly possible from scratch (from bread, granola to sauces and pastries) and all our fruit and vegetables are locally sourced or grown in our garden.
Also note that no external food or drinks are allowed anywhere on the premises.

Dinner is served at 7PM and the fixed menu is a delicious 3-course meal consisting of soup with homemade bread, a main course (vegetarian option always available) and dessert. We ask people to sign up for dinner before 3PM, so in case you are checking in later than that make sure to send us a message and let us know you want to join us! Our family-style dinners often lead to hours of storytelling, board games, very bad jokes, guitars & sing-alongs and are often noted as one of the highlights of people's time here.

Our famous Saturday costume dress-up party and BBQ is a night you will not soon forget. We will fire up the grill while you rummage through our costume closet. On the buffet you will find marinated chicken or veggie burgers and a huge selection of side dishes and salads, followed by our famous chocolate brownies for dessert.

The bar is open every day and night for sodas, beer, wine, spirits, home-made liqueurs and specialty cocktails. Sunday through Thursday happy hour runs from 6PM to 7PM and on Fridays and Saturdays from 5PM to 7PM. Happiness is often permitted outside of happy hour.

When the Iguana opened back in 1996, the set up was humble and homey. We had no electricity and no hot water, but as time has gone on we have updated our lovely little paradise in order to accommodate the future. We do offer WiFi on the property in select public areas!

Scuba diving in a volcanic lake! The Iguana has been home to the only dive shop on Lake Atitlan for more than 20 years. ATI Divers offers PADI courses from Open Water on up, the altitude specialty course, and fun dives or refreshers on demand. Lake Atitlan is a collapsed volcanic caldera, so it's something fun and different for those feeling intrepid. Sunken buildings, spectacular volcanic rock formations and hot spots along the fault line are just some of the cool things to experience under the water.

There are plenty of other activities to fill your days here including yoga classes, swimming, kayaking, weaving, hiking trails, pool table and dartboard, book exchange and TV room, and visits to local markets and to CECAP, the Santa Cruz vocational center.

Amazing views, delicious food, clean rooms, great diving, and world-class laziness are all here waiting for you! Bekijk huisregels

    Amazing hostel! Very chill and friendly vibe. They have communal dinners which is really nice. Not the best hostel if you look for a party: its more a chill vibe but its very easy to meet new people. Amazing view on the lake. There is not much to do in santa cruz but it’s easy to take the boat to another village at the lake

    Ohhhh La Iguana ❤️ cant stop to love this place. Second time after 5 years and everything still the same! ++ i extended my stay, had to go to San Pedro and got refunded, thanks a lot to staff ++ location, family dinner, vibes! - not sure if this is a min but you should realize even in a normal private you kinda sleep outside. Noisy, you share outside shower and bathroom but i guess you sign up for that! If you have the chance, go to this hostel.

    Loved the place in every way. Great staff, best location, super good food served, nice communal diners, lots of activity going on but enough space for yourself still. Dorms were a bit crammed with not a lot of space for your stuff but considering the price you pay and what you get definitely worth it.

    Amazing hostel to spend a few days. Use the time to relax, go sweat in the Mayan-sauna, do some yoga and definitely sign up for the family dinner! I did miss a fridge and I wasn't allowed to use any plates or cutlery from the kitchen to cut my own mango.

    Great place! Staff is very friendly, a good place to enjoy the lake without too much tourism. They offer activities as kayaking, workshops, messages etc. Only downside is the wifi. The signal is really bad.

    Alles aan het hostel is top, echter de dorms en faciliteiten zijn wat gedateerd. Verder heerlijk eten en een van de mooiste plekken aan het meer. Personeel kan na het werk wat lawaaierig zijn, maar dat kan ook wel weer gezellig zijn. ze zijn hoe dan ook heel behulpzaam en lief.

    Voor mij een gemiddeld hostel. Mooi uitzicht over het meer. Verder basic. Na alle mooie hostels in Guatemala waar ik heb verbleven was dit een stapje terug. Badkamer/wc’s niet erg proper. Algemene ruimte Is gezellig en het is makkelijk mensen te ontmoeten. Vanaf de pier kan je makkelijk maar alle andere plaatsjes aan het meer varen. Eten in het hostel is prijzig.
