  • Description

    Description

    This is a small jungle hideaway located in the middle of the Rio Dulce National Park, between Rio Dulce town and Livingston (Caribbean side of Guatemala). Although it feels like a million miles from anywhere, being just off the popular tourist route between Livingston and the town of Rio Dulce means that the hotel is easily accessible by boat.
    There are Hot Springs, Waterfall, and the Manatee Reserve nearby.

    The hotel has 3 bungalows, 2 rooms and a 3-beds Jungle Loft. max 15 persons bed space. We offer drinks, restaurant services, rent kayaks, organize tours, there is yoga hut, dock to swim off etc. We work with the local indigenous community. All our electricity comes from solar, we have limited internet, hot showers and we do our best to minimize our impact on our environment.

    If you have more questions about our place, please send us a mail or check our website There are more pictures on our Facebook and on Instagram.
