Tzantizotz Nature Reserve

Laguna Lodge

Where the limit is nature’s imagination.
This beautiful and mountainous land begins at the lake front of Laguna Lodge and sprawls behind the lodge to escarpments and high altitude tropical dry forest. Laguna Lodge is the gateway to 100 acres of safe walking on this bio diverse land. Situated in Tzantizotz which in local Kaqchikel is Point of Bats, it begins at the lakes edge at 1,565m (5135ft). The top of the reserve is at 1,963m (6,440ft) with some of the last remaining primary forest on the lake. On some days the top is bathed in clouds. Well maintained paths for every fitness level traverse old Mayan trails. Palm thatched resting pavilions offer panoramic views of the entire lake.

Laguna Lodge

The trails encompass large cliffs and ancient Mayan ceremonial rocks. To protect the biodiversity of this unique ecosystem native flora is replanted. Organic coffee is grown on the lower slopes of the reserve. Bird watchers will see a plethora of birds many of them being endemic. For sports lovers there are rock cliffs for rappelling and cliff jumping. Swimming is safe and deep and the lake can be explored with kayaks, canoes, fins and masks. An interpretation room may be visited before setting of on the trails.

Laguna Lodge

Laguna Lodge’s Logo is the plumed serpent, called Quetzalcoatl in ancient Nahuatl and Q’ukumatz in Quiche. This represents the resplendent Quetzal which from a distance looks like a bright green snake flying through the air. The feathers of the Quetzal were worn by the ruling elite as a sign of there association with the god Quetzalcoatl. In Mayan mythology Quetzalcoatl is the god of nature, life, light, maker, heart of the lake and sea. The Quetzal was named a symbol of conservation by pioneer Guatemalan conservationist Professor Mario Dary Rivera. In 1979 he created the first quetzal reserve in the virgin cloud forest of Baja Verapaz. He was assassinated while protecting what was left of the nation’s natural habitat.

The highlands reach temperatures of 30° Celsius. The summer wet months are from May to October. Winter has similar temperatures and is dry season with nights reaching temperatures of around 14°C. The climate is temperate and healthful and of an even spring like warmth with warm days and cool nights. Temperatures are quite constant all year except winter can have some of the hottest and coldest days of the year. The southern wind called Xocomil usually arrives in the late morning and the calm water becomes active with waves. As hot air from the pacific coast rises and cools large voluminous clouds are formed over the volcanoes. The average temperature of the lake water is 18 Celsius or 65 Fahrenheit.

Geography
In Nahuatl Guatemala means land of many trees and Atitlan means “at the water”. The Quiches of Momostenango call Lake Atitlan the lake of the south, one of four sacred lakes that mark the four sides of their world.

Lake Atitlan is 11 miles in diameter, 95 square miles (130 square kilometers) in surface area and over 1000 feet deep. It is framed by volcanoes and escarpments. The lake is approximatly 5,128 feet (1,563) meters above sea level. The Sierra Madre mountain ranges run parallel to the Pacific Coast and are traversed by valleys and tablelands.

The Lake basin is a caldera formed by a large collapse of the central part of a volcano and by huge explosions, the first of which is estimated to have occurred 14 million years ago, the second 9 million years ago, the third approximately 85,000 years ago, which produced the lake as we know it today. Volcanic ash traveled as far as Florida and Ecuador.
San Pedro volcano emerged 25,000 years later, then Toliman and Atitlan in the caldera. The lake is fed by several small rivers and has no surface outlets. Underground fissures and seep holes allow water to filter to two rivers which drain into the Pacific Ocean near San Lucas Toliman along the southern side.

There are some hot water springs. Depending on this activity and rainfall the lake has extremely varying heights. Guatemala has 37 Volcanoes while a few are active most are extinct or dormant. Lake Atitlan is rimmed by Atitlan volcano which reaches 3,537 meters and last erupted in 1853, Toliman at 3,158 meters and is inactive and San Pedro which is 3,020 meters and also inactive. The lake level rises and falls metres over various time intervals. Evidence of human settlements has been found 25 meters under the lake.

Cow 'emissions' more damaging to planet than CO2 from cars

December 11, 2006 - A United Nations report has identified the world’s rapidly growing herds of cattle as the greatest threat to the climate, forests and wildlife. And they are blamed for a host of other environmental crimes, from acid rain to the introduction of alien species, from producing deserts to creating dead zones in the oceans, from poisoning rivers and drinking water to destroying coral reefs.

The 400-page report by the Food and Agricultural Organisation, entitled Livestock’s Long Shadow, also surveys the damage done by sheep, chickens, pigs and goats. But in almost every case, the world’s 1.5 billion cattle are most to blame. Livestock are responsible for 18 per cent of the greenhouse gases that cause global warming, more than cars, planes and all other forms of transport put together.

Burning fuel to produce fertiliser to grow feed, to produce meat and to transport it - and clearing vegetation for grazing - produces 9 per cent of all emissions of carbon dioxide, the most common greenhouse gas. And their wind and manure emit more than one third of emissions of another, methane, which warms the world 20 times faster than carbon dioxide.

Livestock also produces more than 100 other polluting gases, including more than two-thirds of the world’s emissions of ammonia, one of the main causes of acid rain.

Ranching, the report adds, is “the major driver of deforestation” worldwide, and overgrazing is turning a fifth of all pastures and ranges into desert. Cows also soak up vast amounts of water: it takes a staggering 990 litres of water to produce one litre of milk.

Wastes from feedlots and fertilisers used to grow their feed overnourish water, causing weeds to choke all other life. And the pesticides, antibiotics and hormones used to treat them get into drinking water and endanger human health.

The pollution washes down to the sea, killing coral reefs and creating “dead zones” devoid of life. One is up to 21,000sqkm, in the Gulf of Mexico, where much of the waste from US beef production is carried down the Mississippi.

The report concludes that, unless drastic changes are made, the massive damage done by livestock will more than double by 2050, as demand for meat increases. End of UN Report

Mojarra are native to the lake. Tilapia and silver carp were introduced as were the predatory largemouth black bass in 1958 which caused a reduction of the native fish population and led to the extinction of the giant grebe. Crabs and shellfish are found along the shores.

Culture
There are 12 million people in Guatemala of which nearly half are of Maya descent. There are 21 Maya ethnic groups, Xinca, Garafuna, and Ladino. Positioned around the lake are 12 indigenous villages. Laguna Lodge Nature Reserve is situated in the municipal of the village of Santa Cruz La Laguna. The municipal has the village of Santa Cruz, the aldea of Tzununa and six caserios including Hibalito under its jurisdiction. The population is approximately 3,000 persons, mainly indigenous Maya Kaqchikel and few Ladino. The village is situated high up on a mountain slope approximately 100 meters higher than lake level and within walking distance from the hotel. Originally the village was in the valley below before flooding caused a move to higher ground. The village is one of the most isolated on the lake as there is no road access and it can only be reached by boat or foot. There is a small road from the main dock to the village used by two vehicles to carry supplies. Agriculture is the principal economic activity. Black beans, maize, and squash are grown for local consumption, while citrus, avocado, and coffee are mainly sold in Panajachel or Sololá.

Chickens are kept by some households. Fish and crab from the lake are caught by the local fishermen and the excess sold in the local market. There is a small cottage industry of weaving and sewing. Dry goods such as soap, rice, beans, snack foods and drinks are supplied by small shops or the front window of a home. Adobe is produced for construction. Most of the houses are made from adobe and have metal roofs with earthen floors while cement blocks are increasingly being used. The Maya Kaqchikel live on the northern side of the lake and speak Kaqchikel one of 21 Mayan languages. In the Mayan book of creation the Popul Vuh, the Kaqchikel lineage are called the Bat House, the bat motif is still seen in traje. The women of Santa Cruz wear traditional tops (huipiles) and long wrap around skirts (cortes) a shawl (perraje) and a headband (tzutes). As Santa Cruz is a poor community there clothing is simple in design. Most women weave their own huipiles and perrajes using the colors and designs of Santa Cruz. The huipiles are red and embroidered with geometric shapes on the back and a small collar of embroidery around the neck. The cortes are dark blue or black joined with a colorful seam. Inhabitants are poor, health services are minimal, and illiteracy is as high a 70%.

Traditional cultural identity is strong. The areas geographic location and the past political situation has allowed relatively slow modernization however western styles and ideas are being progressively incorporated by the younger generation. Due to Spanish colonialism Christianity was forced upon them. Religion plays a large part in the village with large followings in catholic, protestant and evangelical churches. Mayan traditional beliefs are immersed with the Christian belief system. On the plaza there is a colonial church built in the 16th Century, dedicated to Santa Helena of the Cross, the town’s patroness. Spanish is taught in schools and is the national language. Due to lack of schooling some indigenous do not speak Spanish and many only have a basic understanding of it. Boat services are owned by locals from Santa Cruz. Expatriates contribute to the village economy by providing employment in construction and within the hotels and houses. Tourism is increasing and aid projects are growing with this exposure.


About the Owners
Guatemalan hospitality, ethnic diversity, coupled with its magnificent natural scenery and biological richness encouraged Mayah & Jeffro to invest their time and energy into Tzampoj organic gardens, Laguna Lodge and Tzantizotz Nature Reserve. Since 1999 they have been acquiring land in this area and the reserve now goes from lakeside in four areas to the top of the mountains with primary forest, encompassing over 100 acres of land.

Using sustainable organic techniques they have planted an area with fruit trees and coffee. Where primary forest is intact it is preserved in its natural state. Other parts of the land are being progressively reforested with native trees. Parts of the land will be accessible by solar electric vehicle. Interest in living sustainably and in foods to create wellness led them to work with nature to create organic gardens and grow the lodge's own produce. The produce helps supply the lodge’s restaurant. They conceived and created the eco-lodge, personally designing, engineering and decorating while construction was done by local indigenous. They see nature and culture as an asset to be protected and respected by sustainable tourism. For some years now they have been pleased to contribute to the economy of Santa Cruz La Laguna, training and employing local Mayans to fulfil professional roles in many areas of expertise.
