EL PETEN, GUATEMALA
Set high above Lake Peten Itza on a jungle clad escarpment, La Lancha enjoys panoramic views over the lush Guatemala jungle, and is close to the incomparable Maya citadel of Tikal.
Stone and wooden walkways lead from the main lodge to the Lakeview Casitas with their spectacular panoramic views, and the charming but more rustic Rainforest Casitas. Each casita features colonial period furniture and they are brightly decorated with local textiles, masks and artisan crafts.
The bi-level pool is a welcome retreat after a day exploring the ancient ruins and wildlife of Tikal and Yaxha. As dusk draws in howlers monkeys move through the forest canopy and the forest comes alive with an enchanting evening chorus. Relax under the towering thatch of the restaurant and bar and enjoy authentic Guatemalteca cuisine by candlelight.
