My husband and I decided this was one of our all-time favourite places we have ever stayed (having just done an overnight stay in an over priced hotel in the UK we were reminiscing). We did a two week tour of Guatemala and stayed in...More

Ni'tun is an incredible place to stay in Petén. It is situated on a beautiful stretch of Lake Petén Itza, about a 30 minute drive from Flores. Traveling by boat from Flores is also a popular option. During the day, we visited the Mayan ruins...More

The great service started before I arrived. I had pre-booked, on my own, a Tikal guide who cancelled at the last minute. In desperation I reached out to Ni'tun Private Reserve to see if they can assist with my dilemma. Lorena was more than responsive...More

About
Description
Ni'tun is a small Guatemalan boutique lodge located within our own private reserve on the shores of beautiful Lake Peten Itza. We offer personal service, friendly staff, knowledgeable guides, drivers and tour ...More operators. Kayaking is a must. We pride ourselves as being passionate about our cuisine. Local ingredients are used in our fusion meals. All itineraries are tailored and many destinations in the area can be visited. It is a peaceful spot to relax and be immersed in nature. Favorite amongst guests is chatting over dinner with other travelers and us, the owners. We are far away and near enough Flores island and we operate our tours and expeditions privately to the main sites, both for one-day tours as for longer camping expeditions throughout Peten, Belize, Honduras and Mexico. Collective tours to Tikal also available. Our main aim is to share our culture with travelers and to support sustainable activities that involve local communites as well as protected areas. Through low impact eco tourism, we are able to support our conservation projects. Less

It is very comfortable without A/C in Dec-Jan. It is even very comfortable in the hotter months of the year, too! Flights from Guatemala City to Flores are roughly $250 RT, buses are Q190 each way (Linea Dorada). San Benito... More
