Myself and I stayed in the Casa del Encino - their newest and priciest tree house, to treat ourselves after the overnight hike on Acatenango. It was magical to sit at sunset watching the peak of Acatenango and knowing that we were up there only hours before. Earth Lodge was a big expense for me on a backpacker budget however... More

I have travelled to many places in the world, with many guesthouses, hotels, lodges and resorts under my belt. Earth Lodge tops them all. The view...I was left speechless on arrival and throughout, contiously seeing lava and plumed smoke spewed into the air from one of the three volcanoes in the distance. Once in a lifetime view. The tree-house style... More

I absolutely LOVED the Earth Lodge. In total, I stayed for 12 nights, and I wish I could live there. From the moment I arrived, I felt like I was home. I was greeted by an amazing volunteer staff (Sergio, Ariel, Melodie, Xavier, Liz (the new yoga instructor), and the owners Drew and Bri. The family style dinners made by... More

My partner and I stayed at the earth lodge in the tree house last week for our two first nights in guatemala. The views are stunning, especially around sunset. The food is also fantastic - avocados on everything! Mostly what made it for us, though, was the people. Super helpful and friendly. United airlines lost one of our bags and... More

This place is incredible! We began a week long Guatemala trip with two nights at the earth lodge and were tempted to just extend our reservation and stay at earth lodge the whole time. What a place! It offers many accomodation types - small cabins, tree house above the trees, tree house below the trees, tents, dorm styles, all for... More

Earth Loge is not for everyone- you must be prepared to hike a bit to get there after being dropped off at the top of a hill by shuttle (7 min. hike). Bring backpacks! We stayed on a Saturday night so we ate the communal dinner- one of the best meals of our trip and very healthy! The views are... More

Fantastic views of the Antigua volcanoes including the active Fuego. Great food, hospitality, and service. The only downside is the hike down (avoid at night if you can) and back out, especially for older people. Wonder how its done when wet. Showers have hot water. Good happy hour every day before dinner.

Earth Lodge is just what the doctor ordered after our overnight volcano trek the night before. Myself and three friends stayed in The Deluxe Tree Cabin for two nights. It was clean, beautiful and had one of the best views on the property and wait until you see the view from the shower! The staff was so friendly and the... More

We got to stay at Earth Lodge over Christmas and as far as not being with family over the holiday this is the next best thing. Amazing food, beautiful grounds, astounding views with a competent friendly staff made us feel very welcome. We winged this whole trip and were lucky enough to hear of earth lodge.

Four TripAdvisor circles (and not five) because there were a few things I wasn't fond of.. Prices seemed decent, 50 q for the dorm (although in hindsight the deluxe camping is a better choice), until they tacked on a mandatory 65 q family dinner WHICH they did make me fully aware of beforehand (so no hard feelings).. I just didn't... More
