My stay at Finca Tatin was perfect in every way. The property is family-run with the help of an incredibly helpful and friendly staff. I mention this only because the other eco lodges I stayed in were staffed with friendly but young people who seemed to be just passing through. The attention to detail that arises from places with a... More

Finca Tatin was everything I had hoped it would be, homey, cheap, comfortable, incredibly relaxing and lot's of fun. Lying in a hammock all day long with a great book from the book exchange, renting kayaks and exploring the Rio Dulce down to Livingston and the delicious family dinners I was definitely sad to leave that place!

We stayed there for 3 nights last year (2013-2014). From there we went one day in Belizean cayes, another day ww went with a guide in a cave and kayaking. The Finca was full so there was a lot of life around and the family dinner was really great. The food is ok, the staff was very helpful and the... More

We were really looking forward to our visit and were having a tough time choosing which of the lodges to stay at. We had first hand recommendations to stay at either Hotelito Perdido or the Roundhouse and were impressed with the emails we received from Perdido in particular, by contrast Tatin's email responses were very short and vague. Despite this... More

Absolutely stunning hostel, you can really tell it is the hostel owner's dream come to life. There is so much detail everywhere ! Beds were quite uncomfortable and I found it very hard to sleep at night. The owner's two sons are there for the summer and seem to have gone a little stir-crazy, they were quite arrogant and at...

This place has a wonderful spot, hidden into jungle and rio dulce. We wanted to stay 2 nights first, finally we spent 5 nights diving into the river, chilling in hammock, playing with the big dog, kayaking all around the place and discussing with travellers. Rooms are damp. Jungle anyway. Carlos and the volunteers are very helpful and kind! It... More

This is my favorite spot in Rio Dulce, and one of the better lodges in Guatemala. The atmosphere of the place is great for all crowds- private bungalows on the water, dorm rooms if you want em, and a great common area with hammocks, games, and waterfront. Its perfect for backpackers and couples alike- not too much of a party,... More

Really nice place in the jungle. I would've stayed longer if I could deal with the heat and humidity (not the finca's fault, obviously). Riverside place with good views and great food. Awesome, gentle pet rottweiler. Fair pricing on things given the isolation. Wifi was weak, but you're in the jungle...

Writing in english just for the huge number of american and european tourists coming in Guatemala. We reserved a bungalow by the river, just in the deep jungle. The room was amazing, with mosquito net, private room and fan. Amaca in terrace, silence, quiet and rest. Wilderness and green enivroment. We had a nice time, adventuring with the kayak session...
