Interaction with guests
The house is available when the owners are away from Guatemala, or in retreat or training at their yoga and Permaculture Retreat in San Marcos, The Yoga Forest up the mountain valley of San Marcos, so assistance is always close by if needed, either from the owners or their lovely staff. You can access the house easily using the lock boxes at the gate and front door without having to meet anyone for keys. Access codes will be emailed once your booking is confirmed.
San Marcos la Laguna is a quiet tranquil place that receives eco-spiritual tourism. A place to reflect and rejuvenate the soul.
The Bamboo Palace is next door to Escuela Caracol and La Cambalacha Proyecto Cultural. We are a 10 minute walk to the lake and on the path into the mountains on the way the The Yoga Forest.
You only need your legs in San Marcos, it is a small town and convenient to walk everywhere. To visit other towns on the lake we either go by lancha (little ferry boat) or tuk-tuk.
From Guatemala city, take a private or collective shuttle (US$25) to San Marcos la Laguna. We can arrange a private shuttle for you with our trusted drivers if you wish for Q800 (US$115). The trip is 3-4 hours. Arriving into town follow the riverbed (dry during the dry season) until you see a stony path leading up into the mountains. Follow the path for 200m until you see Escuela Caracol's gate and a large hexagonal white school building, and then the Bamboo Palace is the next gate up the path on the left.
