I can't really think of anything else to add to the previous reviews. I stayed here just after it opened and it really was such a special place. The house was incredible, like no other place I saw in Guatemala. The family are a fantastic group of people and I was made to feel so welcome in their home. I can't recommend this place highly enough. The only reason I stopped in Coban was because of the photos I'd seen of this place and I really wasn't disappointed in the slightest. Stay here!
