Our guide Melvis was great, the meals were exceptional, for being in the middle of the forest the rooms were great and an added plus were the hot water and wifi. White-tailed Deer, Gray Foxes and Ocellated Turkeys all roam around the lodge quite unbothered...More

In response to the other reviewer's response: you can easily rent a car and cross to Tikal. It needs to be done with Crystal, who were really great, and you need to give them a couple weeks' notice to get the paperwork done. If this is the option you choose, just send them an email and ask them what to expect. They do this for travellers all the time. Best of luck!
