A wonderful, lake-front, 3 bedroom home offering peace and quiet in one of the most popular villages on Lake Atitlan, San Marcos. El Castillo Xetujil offers guests all the comforts of home, several terraces from which to admire the impressive views, along with a jacuzzi to sip an evening cocktail!

Situated just outside of San Marcos overlooking a quiet bay the house has 3 large bedrooms and can sleep up to 8 people. A large open-plan living space greets guests on the ground level with a fully-equipped kitchen, dining area and a cozy living room with fireplace. There are fabulous views throughout this house.

The location offers quick access to great swimming, diving, fishing, a myriad of boating activities, hiking, trail running or more relaxing activities like yoga, meditation, healing spas or your best massage ever.

The property is very private without being isolated, with a private meditation area, and nearby access to a nature trail and tree swing into the lake. The Guardian/Caretaker, Nicolas, lives on the property with his family and is always discreetly present to assist - to take you by row boat to San Marcos, to arrange for a private launch trip to one or more of the indigenous villages that ring the lake, to prepare the fireplace. 

The tranquility is magnificent and hard to beat!

San Marcos is one of the most popular villages around the lake to visit and for foreigners to live. It is known as the holistic centre of Lake Atitlan. Here you can find a mutlitude of alternative therapy centres, massage therapist, as well as meditation and yoga centres. People come from all over the world to get treatments here and attend courses. It also boasts a wonderful array of restaurants, bars and cafes offering good food and company.

San Marcos is mainly accessed by boats (lanchas) that plough back and forth along the north shore approx. every 20 mins from 6am-5pm. It is about a 30 min ride to Pana(jachel) the commercial and transport hub of Lake Atitlan and probably where you will arrive and from where you will need to take a boat to get to San Marcos. It is also just 15 mins from San Pedro, where you will also find a lot of great restaurants, bars and grocery/speciality stores.

Otherwise, in Pana you will find everything you need for grocery and market shopping along with banks and ATMs, none of these are available in San Marcos except a few dry goods and some fruit and veggies.
