The Setting

Tucked into natural jungle splendor and perched above the rejuvenating waters of Lago Peten Itza in Guatemala, you find the collection of casitas known as La Lancha. In our book, Francis Ford Coppola should be as well known for his reel of eco-luxurious boutique lodgings in Central America as his film and wine catalogue. This offering, with its breathtaking lakeshore setting, relaxed ambiance, and close proximity to the lost world of Maya, is an ideal destination to both enjoy a languid pace and explore the many adventures of the Petén region, most notably, Tikal, the center of Mayan spirituality. Bravo, again.
