Tikal Inn

Parque Nacional Tikal, Tikal Inn, Tikal, Petén, Guatemala

Step into the lobby and you feel like you've entered another decade, though which decade is up for debate: the walls are browning at the edges and the pool may be a crocodile-green, but the cashew trees and explosive ferns remind you that you're in a jungle wonderland, so what does modernity matter? The cluster of bungalows, set farthest from the park entrance, wraps around a well-manicured garden and a pool (cleanliness varies), which you will be very happy to see after trekking through the ruins. There are several types of accommodations: bungalows (the best choice), junior suites in two buildings, and rooms in the main lodge building and in an outbuilding. The bungalows have thatch roofs and stucco walls decorated with traditional fabrics. Electricity is limited to a couple of hours in the morning and for around three hours at night. A restaurant, serving breakfast, lunch, and dinner, has a menu with daily specials. Some bookings require a breakfast and dinner package.
