Located in a beautiful spot in the middle of the jungle on the way to Semuc Champey. You can walk 30 minutes to Semuc. No WiFI no hot shower. Food was good and the staff were very friendly and helpful.

La instalación es agradable, la atención es buena, son muy amables, pero no te hacen el aseo de la habitación si no lo pides y la comida no es muy buena, no hay opciones de comida cerca. El costo de la habitación esta bien. Tienen opciones de tours en los alrededores, tomar en cuenta que te apoyan con el traslado de Lanquín al hotel solamente si te hospedas dos noches o más.
