A simple yet captivating place overlooking Lake Atitlán, San Marcos attracts travelers from around the world to enjoy its tranquility and laid-back attitude.

Every town on the lake has a unique vibe, and San Marcos is no exception. In contrast to the party atmosphere of some neighboring communities, it stands out as a destination for those looking to experience holistic practices, spiritual growth and awakening. Of course, you will want to visit one of its beautiful restaurant gardens to reflect on your newfound inner peace, or chill to the sound of live music with new friends while enjoying fantastic local cuisine.

San Marcos is the perfect setting to spend some quiet time, enjoy peaceful moments and your choice of a variety of holistic treatments. Famous for providing services such as astrology or Tarot readings, acupressure, crystal bowl meditations and a variety of massage techniques, San Marcos is the place to go for rest, relaxation and rejuvenation.

If you can tear yourself away from the amazing hour-and-a-half massages long enough, you can also choose from a variety of courses to learn these techniques as well. For example, you can become a certified Reiki master, take reflexology and massage courses and even learn the art of hypnotism.

In one day you can spend time with a chocolate shaman, get a facial, take a class, enjoy an authentic Guatemalan sauna and still have time for an evening guided meditation in a pyramid.
