Come join us under the volcanoes! La Iguana Perdida has been an oasis on the shores of Lake Atitlan for over twenty years now offering memories to travellers both young and old while maintaining commitment to community, the environment, and the betterment of our village of Santa Cruz La Laguna. We are your home away from home whether you come here to learn to dive, hike the trails, study Spanish, experience Mayan culture or simply lie in a hammock with a paperback or enjoy doing nothing at all.

Our rooms range from simple to downright luxurious, so whether you are travelling with a hand-me-down backpack or a shiny new roley bag we have got something for you. We have got three dormitories with 22 beds in total, several single/double rooms with shared bath facilities nearby, and ten more modern rooms with private bath and hot water. Many of our rooms and common areas have fantastic lake views as we are located right on the waterfront.

Check-in goes from 2PM till 8PM. Please note that in case of no message from your part and if we have not seen you before 8PM, we reserve the right to sell the room to another party.

Our lakefront restaurant is open from 8AM - 4PM daily offering breakfasts & lunches aimed to satisfy the hungry traveler. Egg dishes, crepes, fruit, sandwiches, salads and our famous licuados are just some of the options you can choose from. We make as much as humanly possible from scratch (from bread, granola to sauces and pastries) and all our fruit and vegetables are locally sourced or grown in our garden.
Also note that no external food or drinks are allowed anywhere on the premises.

Dinner is served at 7PM and the fixed menu is a delicious 3-course meal consisting of soup with homemade bread, a main course (vegetarian option always available) and dessert. We ask people to sign up for dinner before 3PM, so in case you are checking in later than that make sure to send us a message and let us know you want to join us! Our family-style dinners often lead to hours of storytelling, board games, very bad jokes, guitars & sing-alongs and are often noted as one of the highlights of people's time here.

Our famous Saturday costume dress-up party and BBQ is a night you will not soon forget. We will fire up the grill while you rummage through our costume closet. On the buffet you will find marinated chicken or veggie burgers and a huge selection of side dishes and salads, followed by our famous chocolate brownies for dessert.

The bar is open every day and night for sodas, beer, wine, spirits, home-made liqueurs and specialty cocktails. Sunday through Thursday happy hour runs from 6PM to 7PM and on Fridays and Saturdays from 5PM to 7PM. Happiness is often permitted outside of happy hour.

When the Iguana opened back in 1996, the set up was humble and homey. We had no electricity and no hot water, but as time has gone on we have updated our lovely little paradise in order to accommodate the future. We do offer WiFi on the property in select public areas!

Scuba diving in a volcanic lake! The Iguana has been home to the only dive shop on Lake Atitlan for more than 20 years. ATI Divers offers PADI courses from Open Water on up, the altitude specialty course, and fun dives or refreshers on demand. Lake Atitlan is a collapsed volcanic caldera, so it's something fun and different for those feeling intrepid. Sunken buildings, spectacular volcanic rock formations and hot spots along the fault line are just some of the cool things to experience under the water.

There are plenty of other activities to fill your days here including yoga classes, swimming, kayaking, weaving, hiking trails, pool table and dartboard, book exchange and TV room, and visits to local markets and to CECAP, the Santa Cruz vocational center.

Amazing views, delicious food, clean rooms, great diving, and world-class laziness are all here waiting for you! Hausregeln anzeigen

    Perfectly located right at the lake next to the dock, nice places to chill, family dinner incl. vegetarian/vegan options, you can feel that the staff and volunteers have a great vibe amongst each other and spread it to their guests! Just the perfect place to spend a few relaxing days at the lake ♡

    Wunderschön gelegen, toller Vibe, super leckeres Essen und mit ganz viel Liebe im Detail gestaltet. Ich hatte das Glück, ein Bett ganz oben unter dem Dach, im offenen Haus, zu bekommen. Es war traumhaft schön. Es gibt nicht immer überall Steckdosen aber ich hatte auch wenig das Bedürfnis, daran zu sitzen. Die Aussicht ist der Wahnsinn und lädt zum träumen ein.

    La Iguana is a lovely hostel in a beautiful place. The staff is nice, the communal dinners make it really easy to meet people, food was amazing and it is really cheap compared to many many other hostels in Guatemala! I loved my stay here and would definitely recommend it :)

    Tolle Lage direkt am Wasser mit super Aussicht auf den See und die Vulkane. Sehr gemütliche Atmosphäre. Leider kann man nicht selber kochen und darf kein Essen mitnehmen. Das Essen im Restaurant ist jedoch super lecker und vom Preis her ok.

    Very nice atmosphere at the lake and amazing staff. the family dinner at the evenings are delicious and a great oppurtunity to socialize. the community area has a great view and it‘s a nice place to chill out. but it is also the only place with wifi. there is no kitchen available and not many other food possibilites in town than the restaurant. but the food and service at iguanas is great.

    Das Hostel ist ideal um zu entspannen. Der Blick auf die beiden Vulkane und die kleinen Schiffchen zu beobachten welche häufig anlegen ist toll! Es gibt viele Plätze so das man seine Ruhe haben kann. Das tägliche Yoga ist top! Leider gibt es keine eigene Küche und es gibt keine große Auswahl an Restaurants /Cafés in der Nähe. Ich war im Castillo, fast im Freien zu schlafen war sehr cool, denkt dran das es Nachts sehr kalt werden kann. Einen Spind habe ich vermisst!

    Fun place in quiet Santa Cruz. Right by the dock. Cool community of sociable people. Lots to do and helpful staff. Stayed in a two and a three-person private cabin - nicely furnished, private terraces, beds on the very soft side, sockets available. Good, clean bathrooms and showers. Wifi in limited areas. Food is okay, no more - mostly the kind you end up eating only where there aren't really many other options. Snacks are tasty, tea and coffee all day for a little extra. Amazing view.

    it has a very nice and beautiful decorated garden, where the huts and rooms are located, the location is right next to boatslanding, but in the evening it is very quiet, but also very dark, if you´re going to your room, don´t forget a torch, the "dinner" is basic and overpriced, the communitiy area well equipped
