If you´re traveling through guatemala and come by Poptun, a stay at finca ixobel is a MUST. Don´t just stay one night. For exploring all the surrounding and have enough time to relax and feel the charm of that hotel at least stay 3 nights. It´s located close to the road to Tikal and surrounded by nature. The hotel is organizing tours to diferent caves, which is just perfect to explore the surrounding. ( I did all of them). But my favorite way of doing that was with horses. they offer 2-hour trips or also 2-day-trips.
back at the hotel it´s just great to meet other travelers and exchange travel-experiences.
They have very differenct accomodations. from campground, to sleeping in a hammock, dorms, private room, bungalow, to a suite. I can recommand the tree-houses. Very cute.
This place is perfect for backpackers or families that wanna enjoy the nature. nothing for yuppies or people that expect absolute sterile rooms. It´s clean but there are animals/It´s in the nature.
But the best is the little bar down at the pond. there´s music every night and an open fire to sit around till next morning. I attached some pictures. if you wanna check out some more, they have a web-page.
