We stayed here with our two teen kids over christmas holidays. It was easy to get to by air and an easy drive to Tikal and other Mayan sites.
Our daughter arrived with a cold and the staff kindly made special herbal teas and helped her to become comfortable. Lorena cooked fabulous meals with locally obtained ingredients. Bernie was a terrific guide and host. His knowledge of the history and culture is impressive and he taught us many things. We all felt comfortable with him.
The cabins are very comfortable and clean. We loved the lake and swam everyday. The place is really charming and we would definitely return again.
