Don David is an 80 year old that got lost in Guatemala. His hotel is more like a B&B with cabin like rooms on Lake Peten Itza, a small restaurant, large garden and a friendly dog. Don gave us a tour of his botanical garden, explaining the native Mayan uses and giving us insight into the Mayan culture. The garden is well kept and a great place to relax. You can watch the birds at feeder while enjoying breakfast or view the sun set from the deck overlooking the lake while radioing an order for a drink that will be delivered via a trolley on a cable line. The Mayan ruins of Tikal are only 15 minutes away, a must see. The staff was very helpful and friendly, giving everyone a parting gift. Everyone enjoyed the cooking of Rosita, Don's Guatemalan wife, especially her Guava pie. We really enjoyed our stay.
