Who would have thought such an oasis of comfort exists in such a remote location. This 20 year old Eco Lodge built by an Argentinian Carlos Luis E is obviously his dream home and hobby. He hires local people to help him build, modify and maintain the lodge. This Jungle Paradise allows for an incredible restful sleep through the night.... More

By recommendation from friends we had a relaxing and wonderful stay at the finch Tatin with excellent service from Wilmer and staff. The cabin on the river shore with our own private jetty gave us tranquil moments.

This is a great place to literally get away from it all. Common area with tons of hammocks is awesome. Good food for reasonable prices and shared meals in the evening with all other guests. Lots of spiders and even scorpions around. No electricity after 10 pm. Kayaks for rent - easy paddle to the hot springs and maybe even... More

The tour was brilliant despite starting at 4am. The guides are very experienced, Great food too and as a coeliac I had a lot of options... More

Some friends and I stayed here and absolutely loved it. Beautiful hotel in a beautiful place. That being said: 1. This is in the jungle, there will be very large spiders, maybe scorpions, lots of bugs and mosquitos. 2. The staff does not follow you around asking what you need. But don't be shy! They're very helpful. 3. Be aware... More

The Finca Tatin is a great place to go if you want to get away from it all. It is set deep within the heart of the jungle around the Rio Dulce, on the way to Livingston.

We stayed 2 nights in Finca Tatin and the place wasnicely surprising. It's on the Rio Dulce, surrounded by the jungle. The bungalows are pretty and quite comfy. Be careful if you don't like bugs and spiders though, because you'll find one or two in your bedroom. The common area is equipped with plugs to recharge your devices and amacas... More

I stayed here with my boyfriend at the end of July and the place is incredible! We stayed at the top of "La torre" in line with the jungle canopy.

This hotel is in the middle of the jungle. This place is fantastic!. Rooms are quite good, and the service very friendly. The only thing I can say bad is haven't got wifi and you can't pay with credit cards or dollars, just cash with quetzal. The boat to Livingston cost 55q to go and go back to the hotel.... More
