We had a very relaxed stay in Tijax, perfect location on the water, nice pool, delicious food, friendly service. The cabin we had had a private bathroom, which was actually the only negative thing, because the bathroom had only a shower curtain as door and no roof, so privacy was a hard thing to find. For the rest, perfect!

I really enjoyed my stay here, the surroundings were beautiful. The highlight for me was a yoga trip that we opted to do with the lodge which took us on a hike through the forest to a tower on top of a hill with stunning views which was the location for the yoga class. Lucy the instructor was lovely and... More

We stayed here for 2 nights as part of a group and ended up with a large family cabin with 2 rooms each to sleep 3 and a downstairs with 2 bathroom/toilets and kitchenette dining area. We did not have air-con and although the mosquito sheet was great it did make sleeping warm, they provided a fan but this did... More

Very attractive jungle/river setting. We were travelling by car and this is one of the few places with secure free parking. It is quite a long walk from the car park over bridges and boardwalks to the cabins, however the staff were very helpful in carrying luggage for us. It was quite hot when we were there and the airconditioning... More

We stayed there for a few nights. They have a few river front cabins which you want to grab if you can. This place is geared towards groups which visit some nearby waterfall, and sometimes Livingston on boat. While you are there, they have some walking options and horse riding too. My disappointment came as for value for money as... More

A lovely, unique place to stay - I had a lovely waterfront cabin all to myself, with a comfy bed, and patio doors overlooking the water. The huts are accessed by wooden walkways over the water with a central bar area and a separate restaurant. You have to take a boat across to the island. The only bad point is... More

This was our second stay at the Tijax and, like last year, we loved it. It feels like a home away from home. A great place to relax and enjoy the waterfront bar/restaurant, or use it as a base for exploring the lake and river. We stayed three nights this year and we not ready to leave. Really good food,...

We ended up here as there were no other options. To be fair, having a shared bathroom isn't our thing, plus the room was super basic, with 3 single beds (we were a couple) so it wasn't exactly the best set up. The setting itself is nice, in the harbour, the grounds have a wooden boardwalk taking you everywhere, and... More

This was the best accommodation in Guatemala. Very nice bungalow. You are in the jungle but with full comfort. Dinner was also very good. But the best was canopy walk in the treetops with Lucy. She knows realy a lot about jungle.

Only Tijax could change my perception of Fronteras. In a previous visit, I found the town & marina atmosphere akin to a dump. Tijax is truly the jewel of the Rio Dulce. Making a conservation stand for the preservation of the coastal wetlands & the jungle, it did my heart good to see the concerted efforts of the staff &... More
