We encourage guests to book directly on our website for the best rates. Additionally, we partner with Hostelworld, Hostelbookers and Dorms.com. Note: We do not affiliate with Tripadvisor they will not provide accurate information about our availability.
We offer a variety of accommodations to fit all types of travellers, from brightly painted cabañas with private bathrooms to different sized dorms. No matter where you are staying you will appreciate the extra time and effort we put into design and quality of our rooms. We know how important a good night’s sleep is for travellers, so we have invested in quality, comfortable mattresses to ensure a deep and restful night. Sheets and towels are provided as are lockers to store your valuables.
We try to be as sustainable as possible and take great care in preserving our pristine natural environment. We compost and recycle our waste, and never burn plastic. In an effort to conserve energy we turn off our generators during times of the day when most guests are out enjoying the nearby attractions. We are an integral part of the local Keq'Chi Mayan community and try to hire local indigenous employees where possible. This way, we have provided many jobs and opportunities to people that would have otherwise not had them.
