We didn't realize that MML was in Santa Elena instead of San Ignacio... once we figured that out, it wasn't that hard to find. The staff is FANTASTIC and the food is exceptional. We saw the menu and immediately signed up for dinner and breakfast. MML is a great place to use as a base for all the local "adventures" because many of the lodges in this area are so far out of town it takes ages just to get back to the main road. I went horseback riding at MET while staying here and it took 45 minutes to get down a bumpy, dirt road - probably about 15 miles. Crazy!
When we arrived, we needed lunch and they recommended Hannah's in San Ignacio, which was a GREAT suggestion. Terrific food!
One recommendation - pay the extra $$ to get a cabin. The rooms in the main building are tiny and outdated. It was still clean, etc. and the "common area" porch was a real treat with hammocks and chairs.
Xunantunich is only about 20 minutes away - don't miss it!
