"Real estate cannot be lost or stolen, nor can it be carried away.
Purchased with common sense, paid for in full,
and managed with reasonable care,
it is about the safest investment in the world." 
Franklin D Roosevelt

It is claimed that ‘Atitlan’ means “place where the rainbow gets its colours”, whether or not this is true, visiting and living in Lake Atitlan, in the Highlands of Guatemala is, without a doubt, a multi-coloured...multi-everything experience!

Most visitors who come here cannot fail to fall in love with this immense and magical body of water, and its spectacular volcanic setting. It tends to have a magnetic effect on people who return time and again, with many choosing to purchase land or a house and call it home. The diaspora here is, in itself, is muti-cultural with people from all over the world choosing to make the Lake their home or second home. The cross-section includes those living here working for NGOs, ex-backpackers who have set up businesses, people looking for a different life-style and those who choose to retire here, to name but a few.
