We spent three fabulous days in mystic river and it was ans experience . The management and staff are extremely kind and helpful. My 11 year old son was ecstatic with the goats and sheep on the property, he was encouraged to play with the animals and even milk the goats. We went tubing on the river, and the food... More

Mystic River is beautiful. It is private and quiet with the option for mini adventures. The food is excellent. The staff is great. We went on 2 birding excursions, an amazing ride on a polaris through towns and jungle, a canoe trip in to town and excellent trips to the ruins. The balcony off of our room was also a... More

It is 7 miles off a dirt road up in the jungle. They make their own cheese, milk, soap, and grow their own vegetables. They also generate their own electricity. Totally amazing. The people there are so friendly. The owner constantly checked on us to make sure we were having a blast. It's reclusive. The rooms are beautiful. Only bad... More

Our study abroad group has completed the canoeing tour to San Ignacio the past few years. Each year we arrive early in the morning to hike the trails, enjoy the yoga platform overlooking the river, and relax in the lounge area before we depart. We also eat a quick lunch. The scenery is beautiful, the food is amazing, the staff... More

Our family of four stayed here 4 nights in May, 2015. The cabins are very well built and perched over the river. We sat out on the balcony every morning and evening watching the small toucans fly around us, and slept blissfully at night to the sounds of the jungle with all the windows open. Our kids loved all the... More

We spent a week at Mystic River, the cabins were deluxe with fireplaces overlooking the Mccal River. The food was delicious, many items grown in their own garden, cheese made there and served in a lovely open air dining room. The cool bar was fun to converse with other guests and the owners. All the tours of Tekal, canoe trips,... More

I stayed at Mystic River for eight nights with my husband and 11 year old twin boys. I had high expectations due to the great Trip Advisor Reviews, but they were exceeded by Nadege and her team. And even more impressively, this has been the only trip that's trumped Disney in my boys' eyes .... an amazing feat, indeed!! The... More

We left Maya Beach after a few days of relaxation to head to the jungle for a few days of adventure. Little did we know, we were in store for quite a luxurious experience. We arrived at the resort and after checking in, walked through the door of a nicely decorated and quite stylish cottage. All of the modern amenities... More

Though the road into Mystic River might be a bit rough, it is totally worth the effort. Nadege and her staff were wonderful. The food was really good every night, and we always had enough to eat.
