Casa Palopo

Lake Atitlán, Guatemala

The location: With a breathtaking location on the shore of Lake Atitlán, Casa Palopo combines world-class amenities while celebrating the rich Mayan heritage in Guatemala.

Wedding “wow” factor: Does a rustic-chic wedding with a blend of Mayan customs sound like a unique way to tie the knot? Have your destination wedding at this private home turned luxury boutique hotel with panoramic views of the 1,000-foot-deep Lake Atitlán and 3 majestic volcanoes across the shore. Wedding guests will appreciate visiting the indigenous towns that line the shore, each frozen in time with a distinct set of traditions that have gone unchanged for generations. And no one will forget a sunset wedding ceremony on the property’s green-grass helipad, an idyllic spot with the lake and volcanoes as the backdrop. For an authentic Mayan-inspired wedding, the hotel will even coordinate a Shaman to officiate the ceremony.
