Beschrijving van de Accomodatie Inrichting

San Jorge La Laguna has started this home stay program in the village to give something back to the communities around Lake Atitlan, also to give you a very genuine experience of living with a Maya family to experience their culture and customs.

Meals in the home will be prepared by the mother of the family and you will have the opportunity to enjoy dinner and breakfast meals at home with the family. (Both are included in the price).

Check in:
Monday - 4:00 PM
Sundays: 4:00 PM

This is very appassionated since we need to allocate you with the family where you will sleep!

Public transportation to the Home Stay is 4 Quetzales each way. (Around $0.50 USD)

Where will I stay?
During your trip you can stay one ore more nights with a family from the ethnic group of the Kakchiquel in San Jorge La Laguna.

This experience is runs for 14 years to the village and families who welcome foreigners into their homes. As a responsible traveler, we as guests must be aware of and sensitive to the culture by behaving respectfully during our time with the family and in the village.

Although shy at first, the villagers are very friendly and welcoming people.

The home stay will give you a genuine insight into the everyday lives of a local family. If you take photos of the people in the village, please always ask before you take them.

You might find the housing situation in San Jorge La Laguna rather basic but the reason for doing this home stay is to give a real insight into Guatemala, so you can experience the culture firsthand and interact with the local community on a personal basis.

The coordinators of the home stay program in San Jorge La Laguna are Daniel Jiatz Pocop.

We hope that you enjoy this very unique experience.

zeer goed
My stay at the Mayan family was very nice, the family was super friendly and helpful. I had a simple but comfortable private room and a warm shower (yes!). The only downside was that my family mainly spoke the Mayan language amongst eachother. I had been so happy that I was able to speak Spanish well and now I still couldn't understand them! After dinner, I often went straight to my room since it made no sense sitting around the table longer, since I didn't understand what they said anyway.

We had a great experience, we were being welcomed by Anselmo and Petrona and their lovely family. The shower was cold, so be prepared for that. The bed was very comfortable though. We did not really know where to go, we just waited at the square next to the church. A great insight into the daily life in this Mayan town. Petrona even learned us how to make tortillas. We took the chicken bus from Pana, very easy. Highly recomended if you are into local culture!

Staying at the maya family in San Jorge near Panajachel was one of my best experience. It was a little adventure because i didnt really know where to go. They Just told me take a chickenbus to San jorge, go to the church and there is my host family. So this was maybe not so organized but thats why it was also a good adventure. In this little Village are no tourist. My host family was really nice. They try to talk with me. Always sit with me when i was Eating. Really nice people!!! I reccoment!
