Answer this Question

We asked expats what a typical home or apartment in San Juan La Laguna is like. They answered...

"Expat homes or apartments in San Juan La Laguna, are typically modest yet comfortable, reflecting the local architecture and culture. They are often constructed with traditional materials such as adobe, wood, and tile. Many homes have a central courtyard, which is a common feature in Guatemalan architecture. The homes usually have a living room, a kitchen, one or more bedrooms, and a bathroom. The kitchen is often equipped with basic appliances, and the living area is usually furnished with locally made furniture. The bedrooms are typically simple, with a bed and some storage space. The bathrooms usually have a shower, a sink, and a toilet. Many expat homes also have outdoor spaces, such as a garden or a terrace, where residents can enjoy the pleasant Guatemalan climate. Some homes may also have a rooftop area, offering stunning views of the surrounding mountains and Lake Atitlan. Despite their simplicity, these homes are often brightly colored and decorated with local art and textiles, giving them a unique and vibrant feel. They are usually located within walking distance of local amenities, such as markets, restaurants, and shops. While some expats choose to live in more modern, Western-style apartments or condos, many prefer the charm and authenticity of traditional Guatemalan homes. Regardless of the style, most expat homes in San Juan La Laguna offer a comfortable and enjoyable living experience," wrote a member who made the move to San Juan La Laguna, Guatemala.
