Our story

Sustainable and socially commited

Family-run hotel

Hotel Tolimán is a family-run hotel in San Lucas Tolimán, called "The Hidden Gem of Lake Atitlán", as it is one of the few towns around the lake that conserves its authentic charm. If you are looking to escape the bustle of the more touristy towns, you have found the right place! We have vast gardens where you can lay in a hammock and take in the breathtaking views in a serene and tranquil environment.  Our restaurant serves delicious local and international food, made with fresh produce from our organic garden. Our water purification system provides clean water throughout the hotel, so you can stay healthy during your travels.

In the beautiful spot of Lake Atitlan

San Lucas Tolimán is a great spot to enjoy the beauty of Atitlán’s natural surroundings and delve into the rich Maya cultural heritage.  We are located next to the volcanoes Tolimán and Atitlán, Cerro de Oro and many other great hiking spots, which you can explore on your own or with one of our experienced guides.  You can also learn how to weave colorful Maya designs, go fishing in a wooden kayak with a local fisherman, learn about coffee production from an organic and fair-trade coop, visit crafts workshops and talk with the artists, kayak to natural thermal springs, learn about Maya spirituality from the Maximón Cofradía, take a boat tour to other attractions around the lake or enjoy a relaxing massage. We strive to provide excellent service to our visitors, tailoring your experience to your interests. We also organize transportation to and from any spot in Guatemala.  Just let us know how we can help!

With a strong social commitment

Feel good about staying here! 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.


We welcome you to our serene and tranquil home - where you come as a guest and leave as family.
