We spent an extremely pleasant weekend in Cobán, enjoying an unsurpassed hospitality of the Casa Ciprés Family, from the good communication before our arrival and the warm welcome that made us forget the cold that made in Cobán the day we arrived until the friendly farewell. We look forward to staying at Casa Ciprés again on our next visit to Cobán.

Although we did not see Angel, we were communicated with him at all times and well attended by the person he left in charge. Near the house there are several places to eat and it is a few blocks from the bus that leads to Semuc Champey. For our part, 100% recommended. Thank you very much for everything, Angel!

  • It is the best option if you are looking for a place to get away from urban noise and make direct contact with nature. Comfortable rooms and the house is like taken out of a Christmas movie. Don Mario is an attentive and friendly manager, the natural spaces are a delight for the guest, the best thing is the wood stove and the trails. Ahhhhh and a dog called "Coyote" who is a great guardian and a good host.

    Henry2019-12-13T00:00:00Z

The cleanliness was impeccable and the beds extremely comfortable. Roberto built a bonfire that served as a joyful family night activity. Thank you very much Maria!

  • Excellent base for visiting Semuc Champey. Excellent value for money. Recommended

    Marco2020-02-08T00:00:00Z
  • Location is great because you're right by the river, but Lanquín is only a 15-20 minute walk away. They have surprisingly delicious fries! Definitely do the river tubing through them. They'llbring you to the Grutas(caves), which is the departing point, so you can check them out before the tubing. Great spot!

    Ixchel2020-01-28T00:00:00Z

  • If you stay in the oasis, you will not regret it, it is a very nice, quiet place (I was lucky to stay in room 28, and there is no noise of music, only nature). Ants, and some more bugs, enter through the door slits (they are very wide). We will have to improve it! And worth commenting, all the staff is friendly and super friendly!

    Dar2019-07-15T00:00:00Z

  • We stayed in a private room with our own bathroom, which was perfect. We stayed in one of the cute colorful houses by the pool. The pools are amazing and so is the food. We ate some of the best chicken of our entire stay in Guatemala. This place is great, if you’re there to visit Semuc Champey as it’s in walking distance. There are rather young people than families and music is being played between 4-11pm.

    Karina2019-12-20T00:00:00Z
  • Alejandro's place is located inside of a fine dining establishment in Coban. The restaurant is nothing short of incredible - we ate breakfast there almost every day we stayed. The room is a great value stay in Coban and really has everything you need. The owner, Alejandro, is a fantastic guy. When my phone was stolen in Coban, he went way out of his way to help me, coming to the police station with me to get a report and was genuinely a pleasure to talk to. He's an example of someone you pray to meet during your travels. Very glad our paths crossed, even though it was under some rough circumstance. My top recommendation for him & his establishment.

    Isaac2019-12-08T00:00:00Z
  • It is a cozy place, it is small but good value for money, quite clean, and with a good location, outside the room, you can find a spectacular restaurant !! Delicious and a very good atmosphere. :)

    We're located at the top of a mountain in a small Mayan village, with peaceful and scenic surroundings. We are a 30 minute drive from Lanquin and then a 200 meter walk ("hike") that can be very muddy (rubber boots available!). If you want to witness one of the best views in the area and wake up in the clouds, then this place is for you! Includes tasty homemade breakfast. We also offer a cabin with private bath and kitchen for the same price (see other listing in our profile). Same view!
    We'd like for you to come and share the dream home that we've built. We offer you a private bedroom with an incredible view (right from the bed!) over the Cahabon river. You are free to use all other amenities of our home, including full use of the kitchen. We have a large terrace with plenty of hammocks and comfortable lounge chairs where you can relax with the view. It's a perfect place to become inspired and is great for those seeking to read, write, paint, draw, meditate or practice yoga. You'll be sharing the place with us. Your bedroom is closed and private, but we will be around during your stay and sleep in the common living space. ACCESS: As we are located in a remote area, there is limited public transportation from Lanquin. This home is better suited for those with their own car (4 x 4 vehicle required - the roads are very bumpy!). Free parking is available 200 meters from the home. For those without a vehicle, private transport can be arranged (Q125 per ride to/from Lanquin and Q150 per ride to/from Semuc Champey). Public transport runs 3 days/week from our place to Lanquín which can be a more economic option. We can help organize your trips to find the best option for you.
    We are located at the top of a mountain in a Mayan (Q'qechi) village. There is a beautiful river than can be accessed by a 45 minute steep hike through local paths. Our friendly neighbors are indigenous Maya and most do not speak Spanish. If you want to experience the culture, we can arrange a lunch with our neighbors and taste the local speciality ("Kaq'ik" - turkey or chicken spicy broth).
  • One of the best Airbnb experiences I’ve ever had! And by far the best view. Though the house is a bit hard to find (the area is very remote) it’s absolutely worth every cent. Darina and Remy are fantastic and helpful hosts and will help you with anything you need, in addition to just being great company. The cabin is absolutely beautiful and has everything you need! Great patio space for watching the sunrise over the valley (this is unmissable), cute bedroom with additional lofted beds, full kitchen, shower with a view, the whole shebang! And a pretty quick drive over to Semuc Champey! We were honestly sad to leave. Would and probably will be back again!

    Monica2020-03-15T00:00:00Z
  • We traveled as a couple for the first time to Guatemala and what an adventure it was! The place is beautifully located, breathtaking views on the mountains, as you are immerged into the Mayan culture experience. If you are looking for a place to disconnect from the fast paced life, this is the place to go. Darina and Remy were super friendly, cooked us delicious meals and were there to give us advice on activities to do around the area and tips to get to Semuc Champey. They made us feel at home right away. We stayed in the brand new cabin located one minute away from the main house.The cabin is very well equipped and the private terrasse is amazing! Bonus , you can see the sun rise from your bed! We will definitely miss Remy, Darina and their lovely dog Pulga! We highly recommend, you will never want to leave. This was honestly our best airbnb experience ever! Thank you for everything!

  • A little paradise in the middle of nowhere ... Small cabin located 100m from Rémy's home, very well equipped, clean, functional with breathtaking views ... calm and serenity guaranteed. Excellent breakfast prepared with care by Rémy just like the dinner that I would highly recommend, but especially the meal at the premises, neighbor of Rémy, history of soaking up the local life while sharing a family evening. Do not miss the lesson "chocolate" or how to make your own homemade chocolate ... provided you have the beans! And also know all its virtues ... I strongly advise you to stop by Rémy and Darina, no regrets for us, great experience, again a big thank you to Rémy, we unfortunately did not meet Darina who was traveling

  • The place is as wonderful as in the pictures! The house is in the middle of the lush gardens of Lanquín. The surrounding offers hiking trails galore, and Semuc is just a good 30 mins drive away. Spaceous, well-designed, and with its generous wooden porch, the accommodation is just what we needed to hang out and relax. Remy is a great host, who took care of everything, and a master chef - we’ll miss the food he cooked up! Our stay for three nights couldn’t have been any better.

    Lena2020-01-04T00:00:00Z
  • Remy is the best host we’ve ever had - ever. He arranged transportation for us, cooked us some of the best meals we had in Guatemala, and gave us fantastic recommendations. On top of that, the cabin is out of this world. The interior is stunning and so comfortable, with everything you need, and the view you get from your room is unbelievable. This stay was so special - highly recommend to anyone who is looking for a quiet getaway. We wish we could’ve stayed longer!

    Olivia2020-01-01T00:00:00Z
  • Darina and Remy are wonderful hosts! We found them to be incredibly helpful in planning our adventures -- they got back to us quickly with so much great information, helped organize some really unique experiences, and gave a lot of helpful advice about practical things like transportation. You will absolutely be floored by the view, and their cabin is beautiful and thoughtfully designed with so many little thoughtful touches: beautiful Guatemalan fabrics, a very comfortable bed, and a lovely rain shower with an unbelievable view. Remy's meals were absolutely delicious, and after spending an evening making chocolate with him, we now know what real chocolate, made from local cacao beans, should taste like -- we will quite feel the same about store bought chocolate! If you are making Semuc Champey a part of your Guatemalan holiday, want to step back in time and see a rural, jungled corner of Guatemala, and want to have a really authentic, non-touristy experience with some really wonderful people, you will have come to the right place!

  • Expect awesomeness!!!!! Expect breathtaking views and wonderful hosts. Have fun you will remember for the rest of your life. Enjoy!!!!

    Jen2019-10-27T00:00:00Z
  • Definitely our best stop in our 15days in Guatemala! Darina&Remy are amazingly welcoming, and their place is wonderful. Picture yourself having a great homemade dinner, while talking about life, in the middle of nature. Then wake up to have an amazing sunrise on the mountains, feeling like you’re the only one in the world living that. And at least but not last, spend time with unique people, friendly, spontaneous, funny.. darina and Rémy make you feel like you’re part of the adventure. Worth it. Couldn’t recommend more!

    After spending almost 4 years building on this amazing piece of land in this secluded paradise, we are now ready to have you as our guests. Come stay with an amazing group of people from all over the world. Enjoy the relaxed atmosphere. Lose yourself in the beauty of nature. Immerse yourself in Mayan Culture. Support living in an eco friendly way.
    I spent a year traveling to every country in Central America. This specific spot is one of the most beautiful places I have ever seen, and now I live here! We are a very remote location, but we chose it based on its natural beauty. Come swim in our natural pool with us, right next to the waterfall! Although we are a very remote location, we offer many amenities that you would have in your own home. We have flushing toilets and working showers. We offer a fully stocked kitchen which you can use. We also offer easy to prepare food for sale, as well as a family style lunch and dinner provided by our staff each day. We have a fully stocked bar and our drinks are very cold (courtesy of two propane powered refrigerators). Our electricity is provided by a solar panel system, and we keep a gas generator as an emergency backup. Our property is lined with a creek on one side, and the Cahabón river on the other. We began planting the moment we arrived here, and several of our plants are already producing food. From plantains and bananas, to pineapples, papayas, yucca, heart of palm, rhubarb, sweet potatoes, squash, and the list goes on. Please be aware that you will have to hike roughly 30 minutes through the jungle to arrive here (a truck that will bring you to the hike in spot is provided, as well as guides who will help with your bags). It's a perfect for for adventurous travelers, and once you arrive you will see that it was completely worth it.
    We are quite literally surrounded by local Mayan farmers. They are extremely friendly people. Don't be surprised if they stare at you. This area doesn't have electricity (we are solar powered) so seeing new foreigners arrive all the time is better than watching TV for them
  • Chi Bocol is an amazing hostel ... if you wanna feel lost in the middle of the jungle it is your place. The staff is amazing and the food delicious. I had a private room and the bed was really comfortable. If you are not in shape, you will have a hard time but it worth the walk. I will definitely go back there next time I go to Guatemala. All the activities are absolutely stunning and you will have a great time for sure

    Roxane2020-02-16T00:00:00Z
  • Chi Bocal is one of the most beautyful places we have ever been. The location is incredible, the staff is lovely and the whole experience truely remarcable. We would have loved to stay much longer. Make sure to join them for their delicious family dinner!

    Anna-Lucia2020-02-07T00:00:00Z
  • I loved my stay at Ch’i Bocól! Very relaxing place with a great host and nice volunteers. The food they serve is very good but you can also bring your own food or cook with the food they have in the kitchen. The 30 min hike is quite challenging after a long bus drive but is totally worth it. I suggest staying at least 3 nights. I wish I had stayed even longer and I would definitely come back!

    Marie-Hélène2020-02-06T00:00:00Z
  • Thank you for staying at Chi B'ocol. It really is something special, because you have to walk for half an hour and then really in the middle of the jungle. It is a great experience. With the pickup and with the whole organization of the departure etc everything worked perfectly. The dinners are delicious and the people very nice. Thank you and we would recommend it to everyone :)

    Sandra2019-10-17T00:00:00Z
  • We had four very nice days in the Ch’i Bocól hostel. we were warmly welcomed and Liah, Anna and Michael are doing a great job. The hostel is great and you can enjoy the jungle life and visit the semuc champey. The view from the private room is unique! The dinner what you get for little money is delicious. We would go there again.

    Laura2019-09-16T00:00:00Z
  • An incredible dream: an exceptional executive and team thank you for having welcomed us with great memories

    Wafae2019-08-29T00:00:00Z
  • The hike was hot, but had amazing views!(one of the best in Guatemala). Chi Bocol is the perfect place to relax and visit Semuc Champey. It is very close to the river, where you can swim. You can also tube back to the hostel from Semuc, which was very cool! Everyone was very friendly and the food was amazing as well! We loved it!

    Giliam2019-07-24T00:00:00Z
  • Ch’i Bocól is the perfect little escape of the grid. You have to hike to your accommodation but it’s well worth it when you wake up in the morning in paradise. Family feels with delicious healthy dinners made each day after a day exploring the jungle. Michael was more then accomodating, going above and beyond to help out with whatever you need. Although the accommodation is remote everything that you could possibly need is available for purchase (eg fruit & veg, alcohol, meat, toiletries etc.) You can hike to Semuc Champey from the hostel, its a beautiful hike and adds to the experience of visiting the waterfalls. 100% would recommend our stay was a highlight of our trip. Thanks for everything Ch’i Bocól!

    We have a totally rustic design, the concept of ecology, is built with materials from nature itself.
    Vista Verde is a perfect hostel to rest, it is located on a small hill entering Lanquin. We have cabins, each cabin has stunning views of the mountains, while others have a view of the city or the river. The concept of Our Hostel is rustic, it is managed by a local Mayan family, the first language of this family is a Mayan language (KEQCHI) the second language is Spanish, some workers of this hostel speak English, while others do not speak. Each cabin has a bedroom area and two double rooms, all with shared bathroom. We have electricity from 5 p.m. until 12:00 a.m. therefore we have hot water only in the schedule established by the energy.
  • Very nice and clean facilities. The ideal place to relax between nature and its pool with incredible views. Without a doubt, I would return

  • Very amazing place to stay with spectacular scenery. The roads on the way in are very rough, if you plan to rent a vehicle to drive up there I would highly recommend an SUV.

    Sara2020-01-11T00:00:00Z
  • A dream place, where you can disconnect and spend a pleasant holiday! Excellent harmony and attention provided by Mauricio and his wife, they are certainly unique places in Guatemala! Excellent location and excellent experience of being on the farm.

    Estamos ubicados a pocos kilómetros del pueblo de Lanquin. La suite tiene una decoración ecléctica con colores neutros y espacios amplios. Pueden visitar Semuc Champey, río Lanquin y las Cuevas de Lanquin.
    Semuc Champey es el atractivo principal de la zona a 11km de la propiedad y nuestra suite es muy cómoda para que puedas descansar en un lugar limpio, amplio, agradable y muy cerca de las Cuevas de Lanquin. Al hospedarte con nosotros tienes derecho de accesar sin costo adicional a la orilla del río Lanquin (propiedad privada). También podrás practicar rafting y tubing (servicios adicionales).
    El area donde se encuentra la suite son los alrededores de una estación de gasolinera 300m antes el pueblo de Lanquin y estamos a 400m de Las Cuevas de Lanquin. En la propiedad puedes tomar el transporte que te lleva hacia Semuc Champey (40min de trayecto).
  • Great place to stay in Lanquin. Spacious and clean.

    Benjamin2020-03-08T00:00:00Z
  • The suites are located on the grounds of the Exon gas station on the only road to Lanquin, which makes them extremely easy to find. The environments are spacious, well lit, clean and with huge air conditioning units. Due to its location, the sound of cars at night and early morning is to be expected but it is easy to overshadow those sounds by keeping the a / c on. Getting transport to Semuc Champey in the basin of a pick-up truck is extremely easy with a price of Q25 for foreigners (collective transport). To go in the cabin you pay extra. At the gas station there is a carrier that is very friendly but very expensive compared to the other carriers in the town. It is a good option for those who are going for the first time, are entering at night and want to leave Semuc early or simply do not dare to go to town to negotiate. Where to eat? The closest is the gas station shop they do breakfast and some fast food. A more elegant option is Guayahá, which is located a few blocks from the gas station or if you want to walk, there are several options in the town.

    Mariana2020-02-29T00:00:00Z
  • What a gem! If like us, you are looking for a better value for money than the overcrowded, overrated and definitely overpriced basic accommodation offered by the hostels around Lanquín, this is your spot! Luxury, designed, super comfortable, spacious apartment (there are two units) that can fit up to 6 guests. Strong A/C units (bedroom and living room), no mosquitoes, coffee and courtesy water bottles, hot shower, huge comfortable bed, huge flat-screen TV and good Wi-Fi. There are no power cuts and no Wi-Fi hours or limited electricity times (unlike the hostels). The host went the extra mile and not only provided a wine bottle opener beforehand, but also left us a lovely note with chocolates to congratulate us for our anniversary! The location is within a gas station but don't let it bother you, it was super quiet and actually convenient to have a store downstairs were you can buy drinks and snacks using your credit card (rare!). Also, buses to Coban are leaving from the gas station so no need to take a tuktuk to the health center in town. Either way, it's an easy 7 minutes walk to the city center and the Lanquín bat cave is actually super close by. We felt safe at all times. Would definitely stay there again!

    Gal2020-02-21T00:00:00Z
  • This is most likely the best appointed, most modern place to stay in all of Lanquin. While it’s a bit of a walk (less than one Km) to town center, it’s worth it. Great wifi, complete security, easy access to transportation with the gas station next door, and great amenities including a/c. This is a good one!

    A.L.2020-02-14T00:00:00Z
  • Amazing and huge bedroom ! We are backpacking for 10 months and a little bit of luxury feels good !!! It's pricey for Guatemala but really worth it ! Only thing; the transportation ticket that they are selling is too expensive; check on the streets.

    Audrey2020-02-10T00:00:00Z
  • Very comfortable, very clean, very kind and welcoming petrol station staff, they serve very good breakfasts there.

    Roxane2020-01-28T00:00:00Z

  • Don’t let the whole gas station thing bother you—the villa is ina separate building and anyway the little market/restaurant is really convenient. Everything is brand new and very nice. It gets quiet about 10pm and then traffic picks up around 4:30am but the villa is well built and with good blackout drapes. Jose can arrange private transport to/from Semuc Champey and we loved doing this trip ourselves. No guide needed!

    B’antiox is located deep in the Guatemala Jungle of Semuc Champey providing a respite for those looking to get away from the noisy world to experience God through His Creation. If you are looking for quiet time with family and friends, then we are here for you. Our goal is to provide a small, intimate setting for all to experience the peace and quiet of the jungle.
    Property is overflowing with indigenous plants, trees and wildlife including fruit trees, spices, and many species of parrots and butteries. Bird, parrot and butterfly tours free. We just ask that you give a small donation to your guide as a way to help support his family. Hiking tours of the property and it's mirador (day or night) are available for amazing views and sounds of nature. The day tour of our land lasting about 1.5 hours will be an educational tour of all our fruit trees, spice plants and other plants used for medicinal purposes by the Mayans for centuries. Mayan chocolate making experience is available in our kitchen for a small fee. Breakfast is included. Family-style dinners are served an additional fee.
    We are located several hundred meters from the National Park of Semuc Champey. We are immersed in the jungle and wildlife and very little of the natural landscape has been changed in building the property.
  • This is THE place to stay when you go to Semuc Champey! It’s just 5 minutes from the entrance of the park. Brian and Silvia are super nice, they will cook amazing food for you, help you with any other bus or service you might need and make you feel at home. Their property is awesome and quite big, you can take a mini tour in it to learn about different Fruit Trees and go all the way up to a cool “Mirador” to get stunning views of all the mountains and forest. If we go back to Semuc Champey we would, without thinking, stayed with them again.

    Miguel2020-03-04T00:00:00Z
  • We had an amazing stay at Sylvias and Brian’s Place, the Property is spectacularly beautiful and perfectly located for travels around Semuc. Coffe- and Cocoa-Tours are also offered. If you want jungle feeling with outstanding hospitality and hosts that make you feel home and welcome instantly check out this gem! It’s fairly new, at the moment only 2 Treehouses available but Brian has great plans for enlarging the property. Countless fruit- and spicetrees around , great dinner every evening, and waking up with the jungle is just priceless!!

    Theresa2020-02-29T00:00:00Z
  • Brian and his charming wife Silvia have created a wonderful “place to be” in the middle of the jungle. The two provided us with delicious food and organized a private tour of their farm, on which there were numerous different plants to discover, such as cocoa, pineapple, banana, pepper, etc., which we were also allowed to try. A great experience not to be missed. Even though we only speak a little Spanish, we understood everything on the tour well and we were able to improve our Spanish. Brian and his wife also speak English and were incredibly hospitable and helpful. Our cozy and lovingly decorated tree house was only a few minutes walk from Semuc Champey, so we were in this beautiful place early in the morning before all the other visitors came. The special thing about the tree house is that it is very open with a fantastic terrace and a view of the mountains and trees. It’s just wonderful! We always felt 100% safe in our accommodation and in the area. It is wonderfully quiet there and you can only hear the soothing sounds of the birds and the jungle at night. We will definitely be back and can recommend this place without reservation. Everything was perfect and heavenly.

    Ina2020-02-18T00:00:00Z
  • This was an absolutely incredible experience! We loved our stay with Brian and Silvia. Walking distance to the park, we had a wonderful day in the pools and the mirador. The best experience was the private tour available with Jorge & Rosa- we got to learn about the fruit trees, medicinal properties of plants, enjoy beautiful vistas of the river valley, and experience making chocolate by hand. On top of that, Brian is a great cook with a humorous personality and Silvia is the most kind, sincere host you could hope for. Highly recommend!!

    Jenna2020-02-11T00:00:00Z
  • Brian and Silvia’s place is simply perfect. In a beautiful location in the jungle just 200 metres walking from Semuc Champey park. It is also very calm place in contact with nature.You can easily meet parrots, hummingbirds, tucans or other kind of beautiful birds. Both the bungalow and the common space are wonderful with everything you need. We had the opportunity to learn how to make chocolate from a local woman and we took a beautiful tour of the property with Jorge. He told us everything about guatemaltecan trees. About the owners (Brian and Silvia) they are simply special, very kind and always available for suggestions and for helping with organisation. They also cooked for us very good meals. I think this is the place to choose if you want to go to visit Semuc champey

    This cozy wood and stone cabin is located at the top of a mountain in a small Mayan village. It is close to the house we live in so we'll be available throughout your stay. We are about a 30 minute drive from the main village of Lanquin and then a 200 meter walk on a rocky and sometimes very muddy path (rubber boots provided!). If you are a nature lover and want to wake up in the clouds to one of the best views in the area, then we hope to see you here!! Tasty homemade breakfast is provided.
    This cabin is the second home that we've built on our property. The first home is the one where we live and where you can come enjoy your meals and relax in hammocks on the terrace. We also rent a room in our house that can sleep 2 people (see our other listing), so please contact us for groups of 4 more as we can accommodate you! The cabin overlooks the Cahabon river (same river that feeds Semuc Champey) and all rooms have large windows where you can enjoy the rolling green hills and soaring birds (even from the bedroom and bathroom)! You can shower or take a nice warm bath while overlooking the mountains. The cabin is facing east and the sunrises are worth getting up for (you don't even need to move from your bed). It's a perfect place to become inspired or just to relax and unwind. We recommend staying at least 3 nights so you can have a full day to enjoy Semuc Champey and extra days to relax or pick from a list of many other activities in the area (hiking, mountain biking, chocolate making, rafting, river tubing and caving). We can help organize all activities as well as shuttles to your next destination. SLEEPING ARRANGEMENT: There is a queen bed on the 1st level and a small loft right above that has 2 single beds. The access to the loft is via a ladder, so it's not recommended for people who are not comfortable with this. The cabin is perfect for 2 people and fits 4 people comfortably (as long as you're okay to share bedroom access). ACCESS: As we are located in a remote area, there is limited public transport from Lanquin and Semuc Champey. If you are coming with your own vehicle, you MUST have a 4x4 in order to arrive. Parking is available 200 meters from the property and from there it's a 5-10 minute walk. For those without a vehicle, private transport can easily be arranged and we can pick you up from your shuttle in Lanquin. Prices are: Q125 per ride to/from Lanquin and Q150 per ride to/from Semuc Champey. FOOD: Breakfast is included and we offer lunches/pack lunches and delicious homemade dinners (cost is Q85 and includes entree, main course and desert). We also offer drinks, smoothies, beer, wine, etc. The cabin has a fully stocked kitchen so feel free to bring your own food. Note that there is no grocery store in Lanquin and options to buy food on your date of arrival can be limited. Most shuttles have a rest stop near a grocery store in Coban, so it's best to stock up on supplies there. Once at the property there are even fewer options (only small tiendas with chips, cookies, etc). Basics like oil, spices, coffee and drinking water are provided. Let us know in advance if you'd like to have dinner with us or if you'll be cooking for yourself. PETS: We have a friendly dog who lives on the property. Pets are welcome as long as they are well-behaved and don't jump on the couch or bed. CRITTERS: Remember that we live amongst nature and you may see spiders and scorpions. Although they seem big and scary, we have never had issues with bites or stings and they are NOT poisonous. Since they were here first, we try to avoid killing them and rather replace them back outdoors. We can come help you catch these critters or show you how to catch them! INTERNET: Forget internet and connect with nature! If you do need to connect with the cloud, you can purchase a data package through our loaner phone and use that as a hotspot (Q15 for 3 days). Sometimes it works great, sometimes it doesn't work at all :)
    We are located at the top of a mountain in an indigenous Q'qechi Maya village where many people don't speak Spanish. Everyone knows us, is very friendly and the area is safe to walk around. There are so many beautiful hikes you can take around the area, but most of the hikes are difficult (very steep and rocky). If you want to experience the culture, we can arrange a lunch with our neighbors inside their homes and taste the local cuisine (their speciality is "Kaq'ik" - a delicious spicy chicken or turkey broth with fresh tortillas).
  • mountain nest is beautiful, built with love, and all about the incredible view. every space in the cabin is flooded with the mountain view. Remy and Darina met me in the dark with walking sticks and the adventure began. they gave me tons of space for my solo retreat, but were also quickly available whenever I needed them (or their homemade chocolate, or yummy hot sauce, or candles). the house is far from western life and close to the local indigenous people - there are paths on either side of the home where neighbors pass by on their way to and from their land. each touch, table, shelf and stone of the homes was brought in with a lot of love and it shows. semuc champey is down and around the mountain - i went four times. it's stunning for a walk or a swim. bring a budget of smaller bills for buying chocolate from the indigenous kids. I loved it, I highly recommend it for writers, artists and those looking to get back into their bodies!

  • Mountain Nest is not just a place to stay, it's an experience you'll never forget! We stayed with Darina and Remy in their home in the other Airbnb listing (just 1 minute walk from this private cabin) last year and never forgot it. It was one of the best Airbnb experiences we've ever had. We came back to the area and saw that they just finished building this private cabin. The cabin has everything you can imagine. Private terrace with beautiful lookout and unforgettable sunrise. Comfy bed with a view. The bathroom is beautifully done with a bathtub/shower facing the view. We took advantage of the bath and it was so relaxing! If you're there a few days, there are loads of activities you can do like chocolate making, hiking, mountain biking, tubing and even having a traditional Mayan meal with their neighbors. There is a functional kitchen and you can cook for yourself, but we opted for the delicious dinner that Darina and Remy offered. We got to share our meal with them in their home and it felt like being with friends. They offer use of their terrace which has 2 hammocks and some relaxing chairs where you can enjoy the view or read a book. A delicious breakfast is included and you can choose from a few options (even have fresh homemade bread!). The best part is they leave coffee for you in the cabin and we highly recommend waking up for the sunrise and enjoying a coffee on the terrace! Can't say enough about this place and the hosts (and their adorable dog Pulga!). Come experience it for yourself! You may keep coming back...

    San Agustín Lanquín, Alta Verapaz Department, Guatemala

    Idyllic getaway nestled into the heart of Guatemala across the land of thousand caves. Located in a secluded valley surrounded by evergreen mountains of capricious shapes that gave birth to imposing rocks and streams of crystal-clear water.
    This is a centenary coffee & dairy farm which old house turned into a lodge with gorgeous tropical gardens, swimming pool & sauna. Horseback riding tours are available.
  • This place is a hidden paradise in the lush jungle. The house is perfectly charming and full of thoughtful touches. Our stay was short but oh so sweet. Not only were we welcomed by our host and her lovely family, but our two Corgis were loved by everyone. In the morning we enjoyed the best coffee of our trip with fresh milk from the cows on the property. Breakfast was incredible as well. Under different circumstances we would have extended our stay, but sadly we had to move on. Highly recommend!!

    Chris & Michelle2019-04-18T00:00:00Z
  • Housing located 1 hour from Lanquin (provide a 4x4 because of the road). Room (with toilet and bathroom) very clean and spacious. We were very well received and could eat locally a meal at the top. Plus plus: the welcome.

    Radu2018-01-14T00:00:00Z
  • The staff is SUPER sweet. They served us breakfast which is included but even dinner which is not. The hotel itself is so beautiful in the front, has a playground and a pool with a few hammocks to relax in. The room itself is okay. The hot water came sometimes, but during our travels in Central America this was not unusual. CONS: The biggest complaint is the road getting there, it's a very long road that is completely dirt and extremely bumpy. There is ZERO wifi, and you have no service whatsoever. When you arrive at the hotel you need someone to unlock the gate so your vehicle can enter, but you cannot call anyone. You have to walk the path to the house and get someone if no one is at the gate, and it is a long walk. Overall the stay was nice, but the road hindered our plans at one point because there was an event set up on the main road and we weren't able to leave because of it. It was beautiful and everyone was great but that road killed our day.

    Coban, Alta Verapaz, Guatemala

    This unique space is located in a very peaceful and private location a semi-rural environment in the heart of Cobán City. This cozy space was thought from sustainable and minimalist architecture, integrating colorful design details of Guatemalan culture and heritage. Casita Container is just 15 min. from downtown! You can enjoy nature and silence without getting far from malls, coffee shops, and restaurants.
    This beautiful house is located in a residential and private area. It has all the essentials to enjoy your stay. Also, I can help you organize tours to Lankin, Hun Nal Ye, Candelaria grottoes, and more!
    In the hart of Cobán, Casita Container is a quiet space just perfect to rest and also work.
  • Our stay at Mayra's place was great. The shipping container was much more spacious than we even expected, with lots of really nice stylish touches. We loved the back deck. The place was clean, safe, and with good wifi. The shower was amazing -- nice hot water, lots of pressure, good drainage. We also loved being able to do our laundry on the property. We got lucky with the weather and were able to dry our clothes outside before the rain! The kitchen overall was good -- it could use some more basics, but worked great for our needs. The road to the house is unpaved but not difficult, and we had private parking. Mayra and her family were exceptional hosts, helping us with every detail and even gave us tips for local food and tours. We felt very comfortable and truly at home at Mayra's. We would happily stay again.

    Aline2020-03-08T00:00:00Z

  • I had changes in my itinerary that no longer allowed me to use the reservation I had in Coban. I am leaving this comment because Mayra did everything possible to help me not lose my money looking to make a new reservation, but unfortunately I do not know when I will return to Guatemala. Thank you Mayra for your interest in helping me.

    Angel2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • Our stay at the container house was amazing. The house is beautiful, cozy, clean. We loved the modern decor with typical touches, and how equipped is the kitchen and the house in general. Mayra's attention and hospitality was unbeatable, from the beginning to the end of the trip. A unique house in Cobán, and with certainty when we return to explore new places, we will stay here again.

    Enjoy our cute wooden cabins with amazing views of the valley. Located in the Tuqtuquilal farm where Cacao, Turmeric and Copal is being processed, you will enjoy healthy fresh meals and relax in our gardens or take a walk in our 56 acres of land. We offer chocolate making classes and other tours of the farm. The cabins are equipped with electricity and a hammock area and have access to a hot solar shower and clean dry compost toilets. We are 5 min outside of Lanquin and have an easy road access.
    Our cabins are beautifully made with wood and bamboo finishing. All cabins have stunning views over the hills and to the River Lanquin. We are the only farm stay around if you like being surrounded by gardens and fruit trees in a place that produce organic products and focus on sustainability and fairness. We try to cook as much as we can with products from our farm.
    We have private river land, 56 acres of jungle and hillside land with amaxing views. If you enjoy nature and peace away from the tourist trial, this is your place.
  • Beyond the nice setting, Estevan and Julien, the hosts, we're really welcoming and made the stay great! They made some of the best meals I've had in Guatemala too, if not the best! Would highly recommend this place for everyone!

    Evan2020-03-04T00:00:00Z
  • This is a very cool place. The cabins are great and spacious, but the best part is the bathroom. I’ve never seen a toilet with a better view then here (I was in the Jamaica cabin). And nothing better then showering in the open air. You can eat breakfast, lunch and dinner there, which is very nice. I had a really good, memorable time here :)

    Daphne2020-02-09T00:00:00Z
  • We are so happy we stayed for three nights. The views and unique experience were perfect to hop off the hostal route. We appreciated the comfortable jungle experience, the kindness of the staff and the food offered. Cacao tour and the opportunity to try the juice and hot chocolate was perfect.

    Danielle2020-01-29T00:00:00Z
  • An incredible view, very friendly staff and a perfect place to rest

    Marvin Alexanders2020-01-01T00:00:00Z
  • Hector and Elsa were very good hosts, Elsa is a very good cook you can order meals in advance for a fair price. We order the typical breakfast all very rich includes beans, bananas, eggs, tortillas, cheese, cream and coffee. The view is beautiful, so if you have to climb the stairs to the cabin and the toilets are a few feet behind and above the cabin. Everything is exactly as it is in the description and in the photos.

  • Excellent wooden cabin to relax surrounded by a lot of nature. The cabin is and is as in the photos and description, very comfortable beds, hot water and a well-equipped kitchen for cooking. We always had good communication with Mauricio. Without a doubt, we highly recommend it if you are looking for a remote place to relax and disconnect.

  • We were very happy with Aruma's beautiful accommodation. It is very secluded, but in a great natural setting that you can enjoy from hammocks. In addition, the people on site were very friendly and cooked great food for us! It is also highly recommended to walk to Semuc Champey from there, we had a very good time :)

    Lea2020-02-05T00:00:00Z
  • We really enjoyed our 2 night stay at the property. Communication was great from pre-booking all the way through. We had a lot of trouble trying to get our car to the property, and they were super helpful throughout the process, patiently waiting cause we were later than expected, arranging parking for our car and transport to the hostel at the last minute. The grounds were really beautiful, the food was good and reasonably priced (Q25 - Q75), nice Happy Hour and all around beautiful property. There is some noise that can be heard till about 11:00 from the restaurant, but not loud as to be disturbing. There are also rooms above the private room with private bathroom, so you can hear people walking around, etc ... again not anything disturbing in our opinion. Any shuttles or transport that you might need can be arranged through the hostel, and the prices seemed reasonable to us. Transport picked us up and dropped us off right in front of the hostel. **Note: the road past the Exon Gas Station and up to Semuc Champey is very bad. The property is about 3/4 of the way up the road. We tried to bring our vehicle up, but that was a bad idea! We have a large SUV, but not 4WD. I definitely would recommend allowing the hostel to arrange transport for you and parking for your car if necessary.

    Tiffany2020-01-15T00:00:00Z
  • The place is beautiful, the room is simple but very cozy and the people who work here are very attentive and helpful! Close to Semuc Champey but far from Lanquin, the restaurant is delicious! Do not doubt that you will have a good night's rest, close to nature and disconnected from your cell phones!

    Teresa2019-04-25T00:00:00Z
  • Aruma is located in the middle of the jungle. We loved waking up with the singing of the birds. Aruma has a restaurant with a limited menu, but that's enough. If we would go back

    Maria Estela2019-04-23T00:00:00Z
  • If you're planning to visit Semuc Champey or if you are just looking for a little paradise surrounded by nature and indigenous communities, this is the place to be. Lovely people that make you feel at home from the first moment. Highly recommended!

    Martin2019-02-28T00:00:00Z
  • Hosts are very friendly and endeavored. The good thing about the location is that you can walk to Semuc Champey or just swim in the river nearby. Otherwise, you are pretty cut off from the outside world. If you have to go into the village, it's best to just start running and jump on one of the many transports for about 10Q. Otherwise, there is still the happy hour ...

    Patrick2019-02-26T00:00:00Z
  • Very nice place. Close to semuc Champey. Wellington is more a friend than a host

    Steve2019-02-01T00:00:00Z
  • A wonderful experience in an eco-hostel. In the middle of the forest along the road that leads from Lanquin to Semuc Champey that we reached in half an hour walk from the hostel. All kind and smiling. The distance from Lanquin does not allow you to take advantage of other restaurants or shops, but the hostel's cuisine is good and tasty. Excellent cleaning and always smiling staff. No Wi-Fi for 2 days ... beautiful !!!

  • I was a bit concerned with some of the reviews, but our stay was very pleasant. Lisbeth (I think) gave us a very nice welcome and we were able to communicate with her in English. The restaurant prices are good as is the food. The service is a bit slow. We took the expedition to Semuc Champey with them: a great day!

  • Incredible view from your pool. 10 minutes walking from the town Lanquin. You can take a tuc tuc for 5 quetzales. Rich food and good price. The employees are excellent people and they are local people, not foreigners. The climb is a little steep concrete no steps to take into account for people with limited movement capacity. Good option to stay in Lanquin and enjoy Samuc Champey

  • The hostel is very beautiful, spectacular natural views. Very friendly staff It is difficult to communicate a bit and you have to call several times, but it is because the cellular signal is very low and it is difficult for the call to enter. The food is delicious. There are drinks of all kinds. There may be noise in the common areas but it is not exaggerated so it is an excellent place if you want to relax and have contact with nature. The super clean pool, water at weather temperature. I recommend that if you are in a car, be a double transmission, truck or pick up, because it is a narrow road of terrazeria, very well taken care of, but a car of a city is very hard. There is a coban from Lanquin and it is a good option. You can call the hostel to be contacted by a private transport. Outside of that ... Enjoy the trip, the place is beautiful if you like nature and it is worth all the hours of travel.

  • El Hostal feels like a home and the host is very helpful with everything. She helped us book activities as well as our onward travel, and also served a great breakfast each day. She was also enthusiastic to help us learn Spanish and to practice her English. It is in an excellent location for trips to Semuc Champey, rafting and the cave of the bats which was amazing. We had a fantastic time and would highly recommend El Hostal to anyone.

  • Beautiful place to disconnect, it is impeccable and impressive. You have to drive about 20 minutes to get to Coban, if you go by car it is no bigger problem. The internet signal is not good, so forget about that.
