Thank You for visiting and Welcome to Best of Guatemala. We are based in Lake Atitlan Jaibalito Guatemala and are currently engaged in a number of community projects. As with all community’s our objective is to make this little village a better place to live and maybe even convince you to visit for a while.
Jaibalito is a magical village on a magical lake…
If you are interested in an authentic Guatemalan experience, Jaibalito is it. It is one of the smallest villages on Lake Atitlan, unlike most other villages there are no cars, no tuk tuks, no motor cycles, just cobble stone paths, a rustling breeze and bird song. Most of the 800 residents are Mayan Indians, speak Kaqchikel and live the slow sauntering way of life. From Panajachel you can catch a 20 minute boat ride to Jaibalito every half an hour 6:30am – 7:30 pm.
