Come and enjoy the peace and tranquility of paradise by lodging in The Lake House at Finca El Zapote, which can house up to 6 people. Wake up among the eruptions and vistas of Fire Volcano and bird songs at sunrise. Later, enjoy your morning walking amongst the gardens, exploring the 25 acres of Botanical Gardens. As you return, your complimentary typical Guatemalan breakfast should be ready. To entertain yourself you can also swim in the natural spring water pool, or go out fishing for tilapia in one of the four lagoons that accompany the gardens, go rowing or kayaking as well.

If weather permits, your group can have lunch served by the pool, so you can immerse yourself in nature even as you dine (bring your own lunch). For dinner you will be served our famous Finca dinner; bean soup with rice and avocado! At night, you can cruise the gardens once more, admiring the stars, and if you're lucky; gaze upon the rivers of lava flowing from Fire Volcano!
