1. Peaceful house near Lake Atitlan and Calle Santander (from USD 175)

Casa Monterey is wonderfully located in Panajachel. On the one hand, it’s on a private plot of land, so you can have the peace and serenity you’ve been craving.

When you’re done exploring for the day, come back to this house to relax. Head to the fully equipped kitchen and prepare a delicious meal to fill your empty stomach. Then, make yourself comfortable in the living room, where you can keep warm by the free-standing fireplace and enjoy the views of the gardens outside. You can also watch movies on the flat-screen television in the family room.
