Fiona & Chris
Maya Moon Lodge was jointly created by Chris and Fiona who came to Lake Atitlán at the beginning of 2001 and fell in love with the place.They both decided to visit again, and eventually in 2006, they came to live at the lake. Within a year they found this piece of land which was barren without electricity or running water. It was over two years before they were able to live on the property, part of that time they lived in Panajachel, San Marcos, Jaibalito, Tzununá, and a camper van. Neither Chris nor Fiona spoke any Spanish and had never been involved in building of property of any sort, let alone in a foreign country where the villagers spoke there local dialects, such as Kaqchickel. It was to be learning curve for everyone involved! At first, the goals were very simple: electricity and then running water. Their house by the top raod entrance was originally a garage and the owners lived for a while in their camper van out front. The garage and later the Casa Suena was built by the lake. Later, in July 2012, after five months of traveling in their camper van in Mexico they came back and started to build Maya Moon Lodge. Due to the landscape of the land the idea of cabanas on stilts was decided. They had a three-month break from November to March and the last stage was completed. Finally, in January 2014, they decided that they could open the Lodge to guests. So now the next adventure begins…………. Maya Moon Lodge!
