Restaurant Chichoy

KM. 78 Carr. Interamericana, Tecpan, Chirijuyu, Tecpan

Travelers on their way to Lake Atitlan will find an appealing oasis in Chichoy (Maya for “next to the water”), a Mayan family-run restaurant wafting with the heavenly smell of freshly made tortillas. Whether you are just stopping to use the immaculate bathrooms and pick up a drink and a snack, or if you dine in, you can’t go wrong.

For grab and go, there are fresh baked goods and delicious hot cocoa, lemonade and coffee. If you decide to eat a meal there, try the barbequed meats, the cheese and chorizo fondue, or the rave-worthy chicken soup. Families can stretch their legs, too, on the charming grounds, featuring a little footbridge and some geese.


Tuesday through Saturday, 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.; Sunday, 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Closed Monday.
