We have been sharing this jewel with the travelers of Explore Guatemala since before Tarrales even had a lodge. Since Monica and Andy built the lodge, we have been staying over night with our travelers and enjoying the home cooked meals in the main house, the quaint (out of Africa) rooms in the lodge, and the venues of this wonderful authentic finca. The birding is some of the best in Central America, they have an old fashioned coffee operation, raise tropical flowers and plants for export and for the markets in Guatemala. over 250 Maya live on this finca - the finch provides medical services, three Churches, a school (and even retirement) for the families who work and live here. This place is a "must see" if you are in Guatemala. Only an hour from Panajachel and on the backside of Volcano Atitlan.
