The Bambu Hotel can be found on the shore of beautiful Lake Atitlan, in Solola, which is west of Guatemala. To get to the hotel, you have to go to Santiago Atitlan. It is a tourist town and the best way to get there is to take a speed boat from Panajachel that'll go around the lake for about 20 quetzals. It takes half an hour to cross, which is much faster than going by bus by St. Luke Tollman, and the shabby, zigzagging road around the lake. The hotel has a dozen small bungalows that are tastefully decorated and made of bamboo. Some have an apartment, others have two, and you can rent that or a single or double room, as well as a full bungalow for up to 6 people.
