La Lancha, Tikal
Our rating: Premium | Property style: Lodge
Located around an hour from the Belize border and just 45 minutes by road from the archaeological ruins of Tikal, La Lancha is a tranquil 10-room lodge, nestling amongst a jungle landscape high above the shores of Lago Peten Itzá. Each of the rainforest casitas is connected to the main lodge by a series of winding pathways and all come with private bathrooms, locally sourced furnishings, covered decks and stunning views. The rooms and the hotel have been decorated with furniture, fabrics, and carvings from Guatemala personally selected by the Coppola family. The lodge also offers an open-air restaurant, a split-level pool and a chance to take a complimentary canoe ride across the waters of Guatemala’s second largest lake from its lake dock. The ambience at the hotel is relaxed and laid-back, perfect for some downtime in between full day excursions and transfers around the area’s impressive archaeological sites.
