Amazing! I was travelling in a group totalling 12 when we stayed one night at the Jungle Lodge in the middle of the Tikal Forest. It was a splurge but worth it. Our trip's nature guide picked up our group from the Flores Airport and we were transported to the lodge, which is within the national park. We arrived late...

My boyfriend stayed in the Hostel part of the Lodge and it was a very nice stay. Kinda annoying they didn't mention the power is only on for a few hours.. Meaning no fan on at night which got hot at night, but I guess we should have assumed since they run off generators. Really nice staff and decent food!

We just left Tikal today after staying at Jungle Lodge last evening. One point to make -it is completely worth it to stay here if you want to see the ruins. We packaged this trip through Chaa Creek in Belize and everything went very smooth. Flew from belize city to Flores - easy airport -Tikal rep was right on time...

We stayed at the Jungle Lodge Hostel, but I wanted to post here about the Jungle Lodge Sunrise tour they organize. This was crazy chaotic and you have to really be laid back in order to have fun with it. I purchased the tour the day before, at the front counter of the lodge. He told me someone would knock...

There is a Jungle Lodge AND a Jungle Lodge Hostel. It was confusing because they're located on the same property, but the latter is for the...thrifty backpackers! There was a debate between the hostel and the regular cottages but really the difference is the bathrooms I think. For A LOT less, you share bathrooms. And yes, the bathrooms were a...

When we first arrived, there was a couple sitting in the lobby with a distressed look on their faces. Little did we know we would have the same look the next day. The initial tour of the park was good and exciting--Carlos (the owners son) is very knowledgeable. If we would have left after that then it would have been...

We enjoyed this hotel. The rooms were nothing special, but they were clean and comfortable. The howler monkeys set up quite a loud chorus during the night, and I turned on our video camera to record the very loud sounds. My husband thought I was crazy, but we enjoy replaying that part of the video now that we are home....

This hotel is right next to the park entrance and there is wildlife all over the grounds. We were even woken up each morning by howler monkeys. On the other hand though, the staff were cold, even insulting at times, the room was very basic and very overpriced.

Comfortable hotel in perfect location at park entrance and I think it's a must to stay in one of the few hotels there to see Tikal early morning. Food in the restaurant is good, pool nice, bar closes too early though.

Form 1956 to 1969, 113 scientists worked in the Tikal Project, making it one of the longest archeological projects in the western hemisphere. ... more   less
