If you really want to take your family out of the tourist bubble, visit San Juan La Laguna, a pretty and inspiring Maya village of artists and weavers on Lake Atitlan. If you only have time for one meal in the village, make it at Comedor Alma de Colores, a colorful eatery with a huge heart. Not only will your family be nourished well with organic produce from their own ample garden, but they will be uplifted by the conscience of the place: the Italian ex-pat owner works to train and integrate people with disabilities. You could say it’s delicious with a mission. Everyone prospers when you eat here.
Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
