Escudo Jaguar is not a luxury hotel but it is nice. It is located in a treed area on the bank of the Usumacina River and not in the town which is also nice. The town of Frontera Corazol is dirty and has nothing to offer. There are no banks or bank machines or good restaurants. Bring enough cash for your time here. On their website the cabins are pink but they have recently been painted a pleasing olive colour. There is a restaurant at the hotel which is ok but has limited choices. No potatoes other than french fries. The rooms are expensive but if you book on line, as I did, you can get up to 50% off. The rooms are spacious and very clean. Would liked to have seen deadbolt locks on the door but they had only cheap doorknob locks. There are two different companies offering boat trips on the river to Yaxchilan and Bethal Guatemala. One is in town and the other is located right at the hotel. If you are going to Guatemala make sure you pay your exit fee at a bank somewhere in Mexico before coming to Frontera Corozal. If you have not paid, you will not be able to get your exit stamp in your passport and there is no place here to pay it. You may have to go back to Palengaue to pay. This is the best place around here to base yourself for trips to the ruins and to Guatemala.
