Hotels in San Pedro, Lake Atitlan: Mikaso
The town’s top hotel is Hotel Mikaso, near the dock for boats to Santiago. Mikaso has views of the volcanoes and the lake, a great restaurant and is reasonably priced for such a nice place. The Colonial-style architecture gives it the feel of a Zorro film, and it is close to El Barrio Bar, The Blue Parrot Bar and Grill, and other bars along 7th Avenue.
San Pedro Hostels: Zoola and Casa Atitlan
Midway between the Santiago and Panajachel docks, Hostel Zoola and Casa Atitlan are centrally located and convenient to all the restaurants, bars and schools in San Pedro La Laguna. Both have private rooms as well as dormitories.
Zoola’s Bar Pool is the town’s only heated pool, with a close-up lake view and a big bar at the entrance overlooking the pool. Q25 entry includes first drink. Great restaurant too.
Casa Atitlan, at the former site of Jarachik, has rooftop rooms have fine vistas, and the Cafe Atitlan restaurant has booths and covered tables in the garden. And the bar serves house drinks like Cuba Libres and Gin and Tonics for Q9.
