I found it really hard to get info about visiting Lagunita Salvador, so here is some info!! You may come across the name EcoAldea Maya (on Trip Advisor etc). This is what it used to be called- they are the same place. So basically the name of the hotel and restaurant is Q'ana Itz'am and the community itself which it... More

We took a 2-night stay at this hotel. It is located 50min-1hour from Rio Dulce (We took a "Litegua" bus from Guatemala city which normally takes 5 hours and then a boat. You can't access the hotel by land) and a bit more if you land on Puerto Barrios. The hotel itself is composed by 3 bungalows which have 4... More

The hotel and restaurant work rotates among some of the other families as well. Alvaro has reworked their website http://www.redecoaldeas.com/ This is one village in their indigenous eco-village system. Feel free to email me... More

This hotel/restaurant is an experience in itself. It is located in Lagunita Salvador, the only village within the boundaries of the Manatee Reserve outside of Rio Dulce. The hotel and restaurant are owned and operated by the entire community, with Luis and his wife, Filomena heading up the day to day operation. These two are extremely helpful and very nice.... More
