Lake Atitlan and villages: Casa Palopo

Visit Us

Casa Palopo

Casa Palopó is an exclusive boutique hotel located on the shores of Lake Atitlán, enjoying glorious views over the water from its delightful verandas and infinity pool.

Vivid colours and an abundance of art make the interiors a feast for the eyes everywhere you look: bright yellows, blues and oranges walls display handicrafts of eclectic style and provenance.

Whether you are on your honeymoon or are simply looking for an intimate and luxurious base from which to enjoy the lake, Casa Palopó provides the perfect wind down. It is at once elegant and cosy, with just 9 rooms and suites featuring wooden beams, fresh flowers and cast iron details.

The views of the volcanoes, the restful atmosphere and excellent service have led many guests to comment that they find it hard to drag themselves away from the property and its excellent restaurant. But there are several local Indian villages to visit nearby including Sololá with its colourful Tuesday and Friday local market. The hotel can arrange motor launch excursions on the lake to other waterside villages.

What our experts say

A really romantic setting for couples and honeymooners. We liked the little extras, flowers, chocolates etc, and honeymooners may get something special. Service is impeccable.
