Casa Palopo Hotel, Lake Atitlan, Guatemala
📍Lake Aititlan, Guatemala
Carretera a San Antonio Palopó km 6.8, San Antonio Palopó, Guatemala
One of the best hidden gems in the world - and only a half hour helicopter ride outside the city of Guatemala lies Casa Palopo!
This stunning property is set in the steep hills surrounding Santa Catarina Palopó, a Mayan village northwest of Guatemala City. It overlooks Lake Atitlan and not one, but three volcanoes. Each of Hotel Casa Palopó's seven modern-rustic rooms opens up to this view via private terraces. Even the bathrooms have a view. Rooms also include plush accessories like Aveda spa products and Frette linens, towels, and robes.
Larger parties can rent out the adjacent villa - where we stayed- a two-bedroom house, containing its own private spa and 50 ft. lap pool.
