Posada Chi'Lax in Panajachel offers a peaceful, relaxing and friendly retreat from which travellers can base themselves as they explore the wonderful sights and surroundings of Lake Atitlan and its enchanting volcanic vistas.
Situated on a quiet lane just a few minutes stroll from the Northern shore of the lake and also from the main shopping area of Panajachel, you're never far from the action and amenities of Panajachel's bustling local community. The rooms are spacious, clean and cool with en-suite bathrooms, plus WIFI.
Something which makes Posada Chi'Lax unique and really rather special is that it is also home to three orphaned Mayan children that were fostered by the owner and founder of Chi'Lax after he spent four years volunteering in the impoverished villages of Rio Dulce working for an NGO. Chi'Lax was set up to help fund their upkeep and in doing so Chi'Lax is able to offer guests an authentic true taste of Mayan culture.
From your hammock or patio and private lounge area, the atmosphere is enriched with the blend of low key and chilled-out music from the moment you awake against the back-drop of the gorgeous, lush green gardens and mountain and volcanic views.
If you're looking for adventure, a member of our staff is an experienced and licensed tour guide, so all of your exploration needs can be discussed and arranged with us all from the comfort of your own hammock.
