Other things to note
Getting to the southern shore of the lake is worth it, there are some details to keep in mind. To arrive in Cerro de Oro by public transport you take a boat (Q15-25pp) to Santiago from Panajachel the last boat is at 5pm. You can then travel by bus, pickup (Q4pp) or tuc tuc (Q75 up to 3 ) to Cerro de Oro.
Or you can travel directly to La K'zonA by private shuttle over land or water (Q300-800 up to 12 or more). We can help make those arrangements, which can include a stop for groceries along the way.

I was born and raised in Guatemala city while spending as much time as we could in the lake house in Cerro de Oro, La K'zonA. I traveled to the US for college and then stayed there for over 20 years, studying, working, living. Life brought me to Indiana, New Mexico, Houston and for the last decade California, San Diego, LA, Big Sur.
I moved back to Guatemala 3 years ago with my partner and daughter. We are developing an eco-spiritual property in Santiago Atitlan as well as having renovated and manage La K'zonA.
