Eco Recreation

MayAchik is an ecologically constructed natural paradise, enjoyed by people from all over the world. It is a place where you can appreciate full contact with nature while having an exclusive view of the impressive mountain formation Rostro Maya (the Indian Nose). MayAchik is constructed with local natural materials (adobe, stone, wood, and palm leaves) and traditional building techniques. As part of our aim of self-sustainability we are not only using solar panels to supply energy and hot water, but we are also reducing our water consumption throughout the site using dry compost toilets.
In MayAchik’ we have an organic garden filled with fragrant and flavorsome herbs which season the dishes served in our restaurant. There are several fruit trees from which we make mouth-watering desserts, ice-creams and cakes.
In our restaurant we offer a wide range of delicious vegetarian and vegan dishes. You can choose from our menu options for breakfast, lunch, dinner, snacks, desserts, cakes and much more.
Coffee lovers should sample aromatic MayAchik’ Coffee, which they can enjoy surrounded by our very own coffee plants.

Magic dreams 8089099_orig

MayAchik’ (meaning “Mayan Magical Dream” in Tz’utujil) is a dream that you will not want to wake up from. It is the perfect place to relax and unwind in lush, green surroundings, enjoy vegetarian food, sooth your body in our Temazcal (traditional Mayan sauna) and take a siesta in one of the many hammocks in our garden. Energize yourself on one of the many local hikes and excursions or join our workshops and experience local culture unique to San Juan. Later, you can even end your day with a soothing massage.
The small village of San Juan la Laguna is situated directly on 8433008_orig
Lake Atitlán, one of the most beautiful lakes in the world. Sheltered by the surrounding mountains and volcanoes, it is populated by the welcoming Tz´utujil people. It is a place in which ancestral traditions have been conserved for many years and are still part of the villagers’ everyday life.
San Juan la Laguna is considered to be the cleanest town around the lake, famous for its artists and murals that can be admired all over town. It is home to descendants of the Maya ethnicity Tz´utujil (Flower of the corn plant), who live in harmony with nature. The authentic town of San Juan La Laguna is the ideal place for those who want to escape the hustle and bustle of the cities and popular tourist destinations and prefer the simple beauty of nature and the friendliness of the Mayan people.
