Santa Cruz is a Mayan Village set high on a mountain above the lake, accessible only by boat. Lake Shore retreat - with the only beach in Santa Cruz- was just what we needed after 8 weeks touring Guatamala and Honduras, our 9 nights at Lee & Elaine's afforded us the peace and tranquility required before we embarked on New York! We self catered, a well equipped kitchen, and a wonderful patio with uninterrupted views of the lake where we spent most of our time. An ever passing parade of boats will take you to any of the villages around the lake. A couple of hotels are within walking distance if you prefer to eat out. Amigos de Santa Cruz (Cepac) runs a cafe up in the village - a short and scenic tuc tuc ride - with wonderful breakfasts & lunches (really stunning Guat style) and the best view of the lake. Lee & Elaine are friendly and ever helpful hosts.
