La Lancha Lodge is a boutique hotel built at the edge of the jungle overlooking Guatemala’s second-largest lake. Built from authentic Guatemalan materials and adorned with local artwork curated by the family of legendary filmmakers Francis and Eleanor Coppola, La Lancha is a genuine expression of the region’s natural and cultural heritage.
Greet the morning with howling howler monkeys. Take a canoe out onto the cool waters of the lake. Read or nap in a hammock beneath the thatched roof of the spacious deck. Enjoy the breeze off of Lago Petén Itzá. While you’re here, take advantage of excellent private tours to nearby Mayan sites, including Tikal.
This is a place to unwind, before or after wider Guatemala exploration.
