Inside a New Oasis on Guatemala’s Famous Lake Atitlán

April 02, 2023

That’s exactly what it’s like arriving at Anzan Atitlán, one of the most charming places on the shore of Lake Atitlán, the deepest lake in Central America located in the southwest of Guatemala. I was dropped off at the boutique hotel, Anzan, and was greeted by the most breathtaking view of the lake. Ringed by majestic volcanoes, Anzan offers a serene and calming escape from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. This organization empowers communities around Lake Atitlán, allowing guests to learn about how people from vulnerable backgrounds live and get the chance to collaborate and volunteer to impact the environment and local societies. For those open to it, Anzan on Lake Atitlán is not just a pink house, but can be a transformative experience in a serene environment.
