Video Tour - Eco Hotel Uxlabil Atitlán

Uxlabil´s founder and General Manager is an anthropologist, sociologist, philosopher and writer, with various titles about Mayan culture, historical novels and democracy essays who, also, performs and enjoys artistic photography.  He is an accessible host, who likes to talk and share a glass of wine with his guests.

However, most of our “staff” is from the village of San Juan La Laguna, who are glad to receive you in their workshops and studios or even visit you in the hotel to demonstrate you their talent in fabric elaboration, painting, artisanal fishing techniques, or have a little chat about their local social clubs (mainly referred to as “Cofradías”). On special and unique occasions ritual Mayan ceremonies are performed in the grounds. If you are lucky to be present you will be impressed by their solemnity.

At Uxlabil we are convinced of the importance of providing a quality service. This can be demonstrated by the awards and certifications achieved both locally and internationally.
