“Great birding lodge”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 30, 2009

The Chelemha Lodge is located at an elevation of 2000 m on the edge of the cloud forest. The lodge has 4 double rooms (with private bathroom and hot shower), lounge, dining room, and two observation balconies. Electricity is not available, the lodge is lit by candle light at night. Meals are excellent, prepared with fresh ingredients from the lodge's own vegetable garden. The Chelemha reserve has a network of trails in the cloud forest. Resplendent Quetzals are best to observe during the breeding season from March to May. According to the PROEVAL Bird Monitoring Program, more than 70 bird species have been observed from the observation balcony. Hummingbird feeders on the balconies attract 8 species. I am a professional birding guide and have brought groups to Chelemha since 2003. Chelemha is always a favorite site during a birding tour in Guatemala. Details on the Chelemha Reserve are available online on the website of Cayaya Birding and on the website of the Chelemha Reserve.
