Camino Real Tikal Review

To experience the natural beauty of the jungles surrounding Lago Petén Itzá without sacrificing international-style hotel creature comforts, you could head to the Camino Real Tikal. It's possible to spend several days at this 72-room hotel between El Remate and the village of Jobompiche without exhausting the possibilities—kayaking, boating, hiking in a private reserve, swimming in the pool, lounging in the lakeside hammocks, and experiencing a traditional Mayan sauna. Tikal park is about 45 minutes away by car. A dozen three-story thatch-roof villas set high on the hillside hold the rooms, which have porches with views of the sparkling lake. At this writng there are rumors are that the Camino Real may build additional rooms, perhaps doubling the size of the hotel and renovating what's there now, which is much-needed.
