There is a Maya Garden paradise at the end of Lago Petén Itzá in the village of El Remate. La Casa de Don David (http://www.lacasadedondavid.com) is more than a convenient lodging for guided tours to Tikal. It is a respite from tourism itself. Learn about Maya culture and local flora while enjoying a cool drink delivered to you on the sunset viewing deck by the Tucan Express. Room rates include one meal (breakfast or dinner - vegetarian option).Guided tours are small, private arrangements with an excellent, knowledgeable guide. (We had Samuel, who is a birder and takes you off the Tikal causeways into more hidden places of the park.) If more people join your group, the cost is shared and reduces the per person rate. Lodging and food are excellent. Truly a Trip Advisor award winner.
