Since you go into this magical space, you start feeling the good energy of community and support.
I went not only because the beautiful view, with the volcanoes around the Lake, I also enjoy the ceremonies, workshops & yoga classes. Not to mention about Ecstatic Dance events they use to do. Cacao Dance & Aguila Festival were the best events for me.
Simplemente puedes ser tu misma, siendo parte de la buena vibra que se respira en el lugar entre arte y danza.
No solo es quedarse en un hermoso "hotel" si no de la comunidad en la que te rodeas. ;)

I came to Eagles nest Atitlan as a part of a group of 15 women who were graduating as yoga instructors and our 2 teachers.

A friend of mine who was there in may, had given me a "heads up" regarding how rustic it is up there, so I was forewarned.

My review would be quite different (worse) if I had not gotten these tips.

1. Our cabin was not bug proof. It's made from wood sourced in the neighbouring areas and there are up to 1 cm spaces between the boards in some places. There is no insulation and the bugs, ants, mosquitoes, grasshoppers, scorpions and every single insect on site has an easy access.

2. Its noisy! So noisy in fact that a part of our group didn't sleep well all 7 nights we were there. A part from the insects (inside and out), there are SO MANY dogs that bark and howl throughout the night and at around 5 the roosters start too.
So, you need earplugs to get any sleep.

3. It's in the middle of the hillside and it has so many steps! If you are fit and young, no problem, but I'm a bit on the heavy side and I was constantly out of breath and my knees hurt. I scraped my knee and twisted my ankle while there.

4. The toilets are compost toilets, so they don't have water and you don't flush. It's kind of like a porta potty. I was surprised at how bad they smelled only a day or two after the big bins were emptied, but that might just be because of the heat.

On to the good things:

1. The staff is wonderful, helpful and friendly.

2. The food is great. We had full board and everything was good (if a bit sparingly served).

3. The platform for yoga, dance, drum circles, anything really, is totally awesome. The view is breathtaking.

I liked being there with my group, but if my friend hadn't already told me a bit about it, I would have been very upset that this was our yoga retreat.

More than a wonderful stay, this place is an experience. You have to see for yourself. A hike up the hills can't even beat this view. Set in a cozy town that's hard to leave behind. We hope we can get back one day.

Eagle's Nest is such a magical spot. Words don't do this marvelous place any justice. You have to see it for yourself to fully grasp the special energy there. We travel a lot and play at different places all over the world but nothing can compare to this unique view with the vulcanos and the lake. Also they have a great sound system and amazing events like the sunset cacao dance where we played a couple of gigs and every time there was magic and love in the air. If you are in San Marcos you have to pay the nest a visit.

If you're looking for a place to get some peace and quiet you're going to love Eagle's Nest. I came across people visiting the place just to spend some time in contemplation of the marvelous view from the platform but there's much more than that. Everybody I met was nice and caring and there's just a very comfortable and loving vibe that surrounds it. The yoga classes in the morning and the ecstatic dance were definitely a plus and all the vegan options at the cafe were amazing. I highly recommend it!
