I am an acoustic blues musician, who passionately loves pre war country blues. Although I was born and raised and educated in Pennsylvania, I have lived on Lake Atitlan, in San Marcos La Laguna, Solola, Guatemala for twenty years and am married to Catarina, a Maya woman born here on the shores of this lake. I love the Guatemalan people and culture, and also have a restaurant here, called Blind Lemon's which features good food and treating guests to some live blues. I also occasionally have acoustic blues guitar workshops here and also have private students.I have two beautiful guest apartments here in San Marcos that have great views of the lake and it´s volcanos. I have built these with local workers who have been with me for years, and I have done the woodwork and built a lot of the furniture, as I worked for years in the states as a cabinetmaker. I feel that my wonderful quiet, secure, and beautiful compound here is much more enjoyable when I can share it with guests.
Carlos purchased this Apartment in 1995
Why Carlos chose San Marcos La Laguna
I bought this property in 1995 and started building my house, which is in the same compound as the guest apartments in 1999. I love the location for the wonderful views, and for being a little apart from the noise and activity of the town. It is very natural and peaceful and loaded with tropical plants and birds.
What makes this Apartment unique
The unique benefits of staying here is that you have a secure, peaceful, and quiet place to relax and enjoy and to explore from. Also my experience living here and with my Mayan family can give you some unique and interesting guidance to discovering and enjoying the culture and environment.
