When people want to stay at a hotel rather than with a family or in the rooms at Casa Rosario,  I highly recommend Hotel Tepepul Kaan in San Pedro.  Hotel Tepepul Kaan gives 25% of the price of each guests to pay for the cost of education for children from very poor families, and yet the prices are no more than other similar hotels in San Pedro. No other hotel in San Pedro that has such a program. The hotel is close to the center of tourist activity, but is far enough away to be very quiet.  Telephones:  (502) 4309-7733 & (502) 5084-7019. www.hoteltepepulkaan.com
 
  One of the views from the roof of the hotel, where there are chairs to sit. This is looking across Lake Atitlan towards San Marcos and Tz'ununá. Looking in the opposite direction, the San Pedro Volcano rises over the town.
   The rooms are 50quetzales (about $6.50)  per person, per night. Each room has a small private bathroom with a shower. The hotel is close to the dock from Panajachel, but it is on a quiet side street so that when you want to rest you are able to.
  Tepepul is the Tz'utuhil name for the god or goddess of air or wind. Kaan is the word for day.

  The Name of the project funding the children's education is AJPUB'

Ayuda Juun Paaj Utziil B'eey  (AJPUB'). 
The acronym means: A little help for a good road
Ayuda (Spanish for help), Juun (Tz'utujil for one), Paaj (Tz'utuhil for little), Utziil (Tz'utujil for good), B'eey (Tz'utuhil for road or path)

Ajpub' is the name of the twentieth day of the Maya Calendar.
