Located in Guatemala’s Peten Region near the wonderful archaeological site of Tikal, La Lancha Resort is a deluxe jungle resort overlooking the beautiful and unspoiled Lake Peten Itza. The Main Lodge with its soaring thatch roof and splendid open views houses the restaurant, offering delicious local Guatemalan dishes.
Enjoy breakfast surrounded by a myriad of birdlife including parrots, toucans and the rare motmot. A family of howler monkeys lives nearby and visits the Lodge every night stimulating guests with their loud roars.
From the Main Lodge winding paths lead down the slopes to the secluded guest casitas each furnished with beautiful Guatemalan furniture and fabrics. The Rainforest Casitas have a view of the surrounding forest and partial view of the lake, while the Lakeview Casitas offer a breathtaking panorama of the lake.
A short walk takes you down to the lake where guests may choose to swim in the cool pristine waters or go fishing with a knowledgeable guide. Lancha is the ideal choice for the perfect combination of relaxation, adventure, nature, culture and comfort.
La Lancha’s pool is also a wonderful place to cool off after a trek to the Maya ruins of Tikal. Located just below the Main Lodge, the pool sits above our Guatemala luxury hideaway casitas offering spectacular views over the lake.
