Great place to recharge and relax
El Picinic is amazing. The host are the best- they really go out of their way to make you feel like VIP guest. There are so many little touches to the property and it is just a great place to relax and have as a home base to explore the other villages around the lake. It is very quite and peaceful and after a day of jumping around the more touristy towns.. it was always awesome to come home to El Picnic The room was perfect, comfortable , clean and the best place to take a nap.

We loved Glam-camping!
My partner and I spent two nights at El Picnic in February of 2020. We had not done enough research to realize that the best way to access this property was by boat (It was included in the web site, but we did not check there). Once we had made the arrangements to get to the site, which was quite easy once we knew what we were doing, we found the entire experience to be beyond our wildest expectations. The "tent" was comfortable, the view was absolutely spectacular, the hospitality was warm and inviting, and the food and drink were excellent. The hosts, Johan and Gaby, could not have been more helpful or friendly. Potential guests should be able to hike a short distance, unassisted as the climb could be challenging for those with significant physical limitations. We enjoyed our entire two week trip to Guatemala but our stay at El Picnic was the highlight.

La vista en el lugar es bella, lo mejor es llegar en lancha y dejar el carro en pana, una experiencia única dormir frente al lago y disfrutar la naturaleza, sus anfitriones muy amables, súper recomendado !!

El paisaje del lago es increíble , la cabaña muy limpia, cama cómoda, buenas almohadas. Pero lo mejo es la atención de los anfitriones, la comida abundante y deliciosa. Seguro volveré.
