    Description

    Our Lodge is a backpacker's dream located directly on the river. The place can be very fun when we have people willing to have a party and socialize or can be very relaxing specially during the day, there is hamocks everywhere... we try to promote more activitites on the weekends, It is the place to stay if you are interested in going to Semuc Champey which is just 30 minutes away, The hostel is owned by a Guatemalan family and its business supports over 20 Guatxdxemalan families. We offer great tours to Semuc Champey and the Lanquin Bat Caves daily. There is a great restaurant and bar located next to the river with huge family style buffet dinners every night, is paradise for vegetarians as our menu has very good options for them, We provide a beautiful environment that caters to all sorts of travelers.
