Who we are
Hotel Tolimán is located on Lake Atitlán, in the town of San Lucas Tolimán, also called "The Hidden Gem of Lake Atitlán", as it is one of the few towns around the lake that conserves its authentic charm. We have vast gardens where you can lay in a hammock and take in the breathtaking views. Our restaurant serves delicious local and international food, made with fresh produce from our organic garden.
This is a great spot to enjoy the beauty of Atitlán’s natural surroundings and delve into the rich Maya cultural heritage. We have two volcanoes and many other great hiking spots, and organize various activities, including weaving lessons, traditional fishing, coffee tours, visits to crafts workshops, kayaking to thermal springs, visits to the Maximón Cofradía to learn about Maya spirituality, boat rides to other spots around the lake, and relaxing massages.
Feel good about staying here! Hotel Tolimán is a social enterprise that supports community development and environmental conservation. We welcome you to our serene and tranquil home - where you come as a guest and leave as family.
Hotel Tolimán is a social enterprise that supports community development and environmental conservation initiatives. Our staff receive fair wages, health insurance, and other benefits. Our organic permaculture garden provides fresh produce to the restaurant, while protecting the unique and fragile lake ecosystem from chemical run-off. We warm our swimming pool with solar energy and reduce electric, plastic and other waste. These are only a few examples of our social and environmental commitment.

"Gets better every year"
" Spending time at the Toliman is a perfect vacation. The grounds, the view of the lake, the organic garden,amazing birds, kayaking, and friendly staff are exceptional. San Lucas is a real town, not full of tourists, and the Toliman is a comfortable, beautiful place to experience Guatemala
