Chimino’s Island Lodge

Tikal & Peten

Enjoy the most pristine jungle, as natural as it gets! Your senses flow by the overwhelming nature all around. The Last Mayan Outpost is a fortified artificial island built by the ancient Maya to defend themselves during the terminal period of their occupation in this region. Each of the bungalows is perfectly blended into the rain-forest and several hundred feet away from each other, so you can enjoy your own private jungle and the fascinating views of the Petexbatún lagoon. Chiminos Island Lodge, an impeccable setting that goes beyond what you may expect to find in the middle of the jungle.


Prepare yourself to experience the finest cuisine in the jungle! Our hostess is a fine chef and cooks recipes cherished by generations but enriched with others shared by our guests. You may want to dine a blanco, fresh of the day, prepared by our hostess grilled or baked in wine and fine herbs or, if on a diet, you can enjoy a fresh salad or her already famous cucumber soup. Her husband and his helpers will guide you and take care of your needs in a friendly manner with the typical Guatemalan hospitality.


At Chiminos Island Lodge you can combine your ecological and archaeological interests with the opportunity to relax in beautiful and peaceful surroundings. On-site activities include fishing, swimming, canoeing and bird-watching. You can also hit the hiking trails that take you into the jungle and to the Mayan Citadel. It’s almost like being the discoverer of this Mayan site! Different tours to nearby Mayan Sites are also available and recommended.
