There is a few things you should know about Santa Cruz La Laguna hostels and the city in general. Besides comparing you the best and cheapest hostels in Santa Cruz La Laguna, we also highlight what we have liked, disliked and things to look out for.

Santa Cruz La Laguna is a breathtaking, hidden paradise located on the shores of Lake Atitlan, Guatemala. It's beautiful volcano views and beautiful water are the perfect setting to take a relaxing weekend away from the big city, a glimpse into the life of a Guatemalan villager, a delicious meal or a scuba diving trip in a volcanic, high altitude lake.

Santa Cruz is easily accessible by boats coming from Panajachel, San Pedro, or most other communities around the lake. These boats are inexpensive and run regularly throughout the day. Private boats can be charted if nighttime or early morning travel is required; there are no roads into Santa Cruz. Santa Cruz La Laguna hostels are all located on the waterfront next to the pier where the boats dock. The town is small and is located a short fifteen-minute walk up the hill. Although Santa Cruz is small, the town offers all amenities needed for a short visit or a longer stay. Santa Cruz is also the only place on Lake Atitlan to offer scuba diving courses and fun dives. Day spas and delicious restaurants scatted the waterfront and create an atmosphere of enjoyment, pampering, and a go-slow attitude that you will remember for years to come.

Santa Cruz is widely considered to be a hidden gem and one of the most beautiful and worthwhile places to visit on Lake Atitlan. It is highly recommended to have flexible travel plans, as you will not want to leave!
