Reviewed December 24, 2010

We spent three very relaxing days at El Sombrero in the second week of November 2010. The owner's son Sebastian proved to be a very able, patient, and knowledgeable guide to the ruins at Yaxhá. He also guided us on some long hikes around the lake, and although he is not a birder, his skills enabled us to find some birds that we otherwise would have missed. His knowledge of the history of the area, and of the ancient peoples and culture, is deep. We are very glad we had him accompany us as our guide while we were there. The cabins (duplexes) are basic, but very clean and comfortable and the screens were welcome and successfully kept the biting insects on the outside!! The food was good, the beer cold, and the service was first rate. The staff even cleaned the mud off our boots when we returned from our hike around the south side of the lake!!! We felt special. We had a great time, and would definitely return to El Sombrero! We heartily recommend Ecolodge El Sombrero.
