We stayed here for a night between seeing Tikal and Yaxha. It was a great choice with great service and good food. While we were only there for one night with a few hours of daylight, we got to see lots of wildlife including birds, spider monkeys, foxes, and a ~7 foot croc

We had lunch at el sombrero on our way to Topoxte, the owner has some sort of exclusive access to the island. I had the chicken stuffed with herbs and the hibiscus drink, both very good. Then we took the boat to Topoxte and back. Nice little tour!

Robert, To get from Belize to Yaxha, you have two options. We can provide shuttle from the border to our hotel ($100). The second option which is a little bit more cheaper, is that you take a Colectivo or public bus from Belize and they can drop you off in Aldea la Maquina, where we can pick you up for Q100 (we can meet at the restaurant Portal de Yaxhá, where you can call us or the restaurant will). Kind regards, Ecolodge El Sombrero

"I chose a luxury cabin with private bathroom but apparently there are bigger bargains with fewer amenities too."
"Without private bath are very affordable, but they do have private bath as well."
"Check for privacy....if you can afford it"
"If you are looking for true privacy in this duplex cabin, consider booking both rooms which are not very expensive."
"Choose the cabins with private bathroom, because they are closer to the lake."
$81 - $128 (Based on Average Rates for a Standard Room)
