As a couple of Americans traveling to Central America for the first time, we were lucky to have chosen such a wonderful place to stay. There are plenty of hotels at Lake Atitlan, but La Fortuna is the only one that offers this unique combination of true comfort and hospitality while also being ecologically sustainable and supportive of the local...

Arriving in the dark by boat, we were shown to our room, dinner was served to us, and we slept...only to wake up in paradise! Free kayaks and paddle boards available, delicious food, gorgeous rooms, it was perfect. We stayed in a room with an outdoor bathroom, and a rooftop lounge. We enjoyed yoga as the sun rose in the...

After visiting other parts of Guatemala, I came to the lake Atitlan and stayed at LaFortuna for four nights. Everyday I was visiting near by towns, and from seeing other places by the lake, LaFortuna by far is the most beautiful property. Its unique bungalows are stunning. Each one of them was built with so much attention to detail. It...

Absolutely wonderful stay in unique cabins with all the necessary creature comforts. I can not say enough good things about the hosts, service staff, food, and just about everything. There's a hot tub too! Great options for vegetarian too! I stayed for two nights in two different cabins and still had a great time. The owners were cool enough to...

I went here a little while ago when I needed to get away from Panajachel. What a magical place! The owners are so accomodating, food incredibly delicious, and it has great access to the lake for swimming and boating. The whole place is a paradise that I will go back to over and over and over.

We stayed at LaFortuna in April during a trip to Guatemala with our daughter and her husband. It is difficult to describe just how amazingly pretty this little place is. It definitely has the "Wow" effect when you first arrive. The owners were not able to be there, but they left LaFortuna in good hands with Claudina and Marrisa. They...

This was by far my favourite place I stayed in all of Guatemala. Everything about La Fortuna exceeded expectations from the stunning setting, the delicious food and beautiful bungalows. Sadly I didn't get to meet Kat and Steve as they were on vacation over my stay but I was incredibly well looked after by Bri and Ale. As a solo...

My second time here and I'm absolutely obsessed. The views, ambiance, food, company, pups, EVERYTHING. It is my favorite weekend getaway and I plan to be back many times over. Enjoy your stay knowing that you've absolutely peaked in life in getting to be here.

Although our luggage did not arrive when we did, we had a great stay here. The food was amazing, and the service was phenomenal. The owner was kind enough to help us track our missing bags, and even lent some personal clothing items to my wife. The setting of La Fortuna is fantastic. It is just a short boat ride...
