  • Description


    We are an eco friendly hotel and campground located in the foothills of the Mayan mountains at an elevation of 600 Meters. We are in the northern region of GUATEMALA 5 kilometers south of the town of POPTUN in the state of PETEN in a unique setting of pine forest and jungle. We are 2 hours north of RIO DULCE and 2 hours south of FLORES. The ruins of TIKAL are just two hours away from us. We recieve travelers from all over the world as well as local visitors from Guatemala and El Salvador. We are famous for our bakery and home made meals made from scratch.
    We offer guided trips like horseback riding, different cave trips (one cave is even on our property, the others are nearby), tours to closeby natural and arqueological sites. Other activities are self guided walks and hikes, swimming, pin pong, volleyball...

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Our employees are from the local village and some are mayan. This provides a great opportunity to learn about their culture and a chance to practice your spanish skills.

  • Help


    Most of the work required is in the hotel area. We do appreciate volunteers with horse care/training skills and volunteers with web page design experience. It’s a great opportunity to meet travelers from around the world and the chance to get to know the people from the local community. Volunteers get to take part in the excursions that we have to offer. We do require that you speak at least English and Spanish with a minimum stay of 6 weeks.
    We have a full wood workshop where we maintain, build and complete our furniture by hand. For this task we really need someone with passion and experience.
