Lovely cabanas spread among lush tropical vegetation, filled with exotic flowers and birds. Friendly and welcoming staff, under the very capable management of Rosa. Clean, neat, and lovely decor in the rooms. A nice breakfast is included (fruit plate and choice of egg dish, always with fresh, hand made corn tortillas). Reasonably priced dinner is optional, two choices (varies). One... More

The grounds of the Inn are lovingly cared for with amazing tropical flowers and plants. The rooms are comfortable, air-conditioned, and filled with charming folk art from all over Mexico. The...

My husband & I have stayed at the Flycatcher twice, and it just keeps getting better! I second all the glowing descriptions of the facilities and the owners, but I also want to take the praise of the owners and the town folk of Santa Elena up one more notch.

The Flycatcher is locally owned and operated. The meals are prepared fresh, daily and are excellent. Nice showers and hot water. Rooms are well kept and offer privacy. Rosa is very helpful with service at the B&B and with information of Santa Elena and the surrounding Mayan country. Ask for a motor taxi (covered wagon moped) particularly the driver Cesar,... More

Thank you for your review, Heather.

We really liked everything: the surroundings, the friendly staff, the room was quite big and breakfast was delicious... and tastes even better when you have it at the verandah, facing the beautiful vegetation.
