An intimate and romantic retreat beside a magical lake

Set in the rainforest high above the shores of Lago Petén Itzá is La Lancha, a quaint, 10-room lodge decorated with artwork and furniture from Bali, as well as fabrics and carvings from Guatemala personally selected by the Coppola family. Beyond the clear water of the lake is Tikal, the epicenter of Mayan spirituality. Buried deep within the rainforest, the ruins include more than 3,000 structures where moss clings to the steps of ancient temples and plazas.

With its beautiful lakeshore setting, relaxed ambiance and close proximity to the lost world of Maya, La Lancha is an ideal destination to both enjoy a languid pace and explore the many adventures of the Petén region. Contact us today for more information on Guatemala adventure tour reservations.

La Lancha is a favorite of Francis’s due to the simplicity, rustic charm and natural beauty. When he stays at La Lancha he eagerly awaits the roar of the resident (and friendly) howler monkeys around dawn and dusk.
