Fodor's Review

This cluster of wooden cabins is a restful place to spend the night near Yaxhá. Electricity is solar and somewhat limited, but the lakefront views, access to the Yaxhá ruins, and ample opportunities for bird-watching more than make up for it. The friendly Italian owner goes out of her way to arrange trips for her guests. Rooms with shared bathrooms have reasonable rates.
