We had an amazing stay at Pasaj Cap from December 5th – 17th.
Where to start? Pierre had pre-arranged our transfer from Guatemala City to Pasaj Cap and everything went flawlessly. Before leaving Guatemala City our driver stopped at Walmart where we grabbed most of our supplies for the two weeks.
We arrived at Pasaj Cap shortly after 3pm and the amazing staffs on site were there to assist with the bags and showed us to our unit. We stayed in the Copacabana loft and loved everything about it. Off course the view being the main asset. We even moved the sofa in front of the window and spent countless hours just taking in the views and enjoying how peaceful the place was. We opened the windows fully on arrival and they remained that way for the length of our stay. The unit itself is beautifully decorated and had everything one can need in the kitchen. The water cooler is an added bonus and we never had to worry about having enough drinkable water. The roof top terrace is also a beautiful feature; it was great to sit up there with a drink and a book in the afternoon. The breeze from Lake Atitlan was always welcome. The terrace is equipped with two very comfy loungers, a table and a hammock. It’s also a great spot to stare at the stars.
The property itself is gorgeous and impeccably maintained. They work at it every day and are always making improvements. It also felt very secure as the two entry points are locked and a key is required to gain access to the property itself. For new arrival or delivery they actually have to ring a bell and be let in by Staff on site.
There are two docks by the water: one where you can hop on the water taxi and go to any little town around the lake. The water taxis are frequent; they start early in the morning and run until sun down. The other dock is for the swimmers to climb back up. The water was refreshing to say the least but my husband enjoyed his morning swims almost daily.
Pierre the owner resides on site and is usually around to answer any questions you have.
Bugs were not a problem at all while we were there, like I mentioned, we kept the windows wide open and were not bothered.
The town of San Marcos La Laguna is approximately a 15-20 minute walk from Pasaj Cap. There you can find small shops and restaurants. The bigger grocery stores are located in Pana, a 30 minute boat ride from Pasaj Cap.
Every town as something to offer and it’s worth the boat ride even if you just walk around and take in the sites.
Kayaking on Lake Atitlan is a must. Do it in the morning as the waves and the wind pick up in the afternoon. Your arms will thank you for that.
I have no hesitations what so ever and would recommend Pasaj Cap to anyone who wants to visit Lake Atitlan. It’s the perfect place for some TLC, no television, and no radios. The WIFI worked great anywhere on the property.
We will definitely return.
We rented a house from Pierre ,it was exactly as the picture Pierre send us living ,kitchen and dinning all open .Lovely view of the moutains .Large Separte bedroom lots of storage. A private fenced yard and a sun bathing area on the roof.Pierre and the his staff were excellent and we will return.
Great place to stay in company of your love ones, it has a wonderful view of the lake and volcanos in the middle of nowhere with all the services included, excellent service and friendly environment, Pierre, is a great host and always there to help you and give you the best advice of all the nicest spots to visit around the area.
The apartaments are clean and make you feel so relaxed and away from the rest of the world, you can have a delicious breakfast in front of the lake and volcanos and a wine and cheese afternoon looking at the sunset!
I strongly recommend this place and I'm looking forward to going back there next year :)
We stayed 6 weeks at Pasaj-Cap and absolutely loved it. The mesmerizing views, the quality of accommodation and service, the ease and proximity to restaurants and entertainment are the reasons why we will probably return. Morning swims in the lake and sunbathing on the dock were a treat! Pierre and his staff will ensure that all your needs are met.
Our stay at Pasaj-cap will be remembered for the beauty of the lake and the unbeatable views! The place is well-built and well-maintained by Pierre and is the perfect spot for just getting away from it all. There are no places to eat within about a mile, so make sure to bring food into your rental or be prepared for a walk on a rough road for each meal (which we did and it was not too bad).

We really enjoyed our stay at Pierre's place. The lightning, the kitchen, the furniture - everything is brilliantly thought through and smartly designed. You can't get a better value for money! Highly recommended to anyone!
What a wonderful place, it's hard to describe how lovely this place is, set on the side of lake Atitlan. The apartment is clean, tidy and tastefully decorated. The owner Pierre is helpful and accommodating and the staff on site are all friendly and helpful too.
Pierre has clearly worked hard to create something he is very passionate about.
Walkable to San Marcos and only a short boat ride to neighbouring San Pedro or Panajachel plus other little towns. The walk down to the boat is a little steep and the walk back up feels steeper! but who is in a rush!!
Only stayed here for a few days before going home, would've been very easy to stay longer. Very tranquil and picturesque.
Oh and there is even wifi included just in case you can't be without it!
