La Lancha Resort, Tikal

The intimate luxury casitas are set off by the stunning rainforest setting of Tikal, Guatemala. The surrounding wildlife and beautiful pool leave you feeling you are in a world of your own.

You have spent the day wandering through the ruins of Tikal’s Mayan temples and plazas – over 300 buildings in all – that lie half-consumed by the surrounding rainforest. As you return to the cool comfort of La Lancha, the thought of diving into the inviting, split-level pool swims before your eyes.

From La Lancha Resort you will hear the birds, howler monkeys and creatures of the surrounding rainforest calling to each other. You will also be able to appreciate the full beauty of Lake Petén Itzá – and the sympathetic landscaping of the resort itself.

This is a perfect place.
