Ni'tun Lodge and Private Reserve Review

After hiking through the jungle, you'll love returning to this charming cluster of cabins owned by a former coffee farmer across the lake from Flores. The point of this upscale ecolodge is to disturb the environment as little as possible, so the buildings are constructed of stone and wood left behind by farmers clearing land for fields. The common areas, including a massive kitchen downstairs and an airy bar and reading room upstairs, are delightful. Ni'tun also runs Monkey Eco Tours, so you can choose from itineraries ranging from one-day trips to nearby villages to a seven-day journey to El Mirador (at US$250 a day per person). It's easiest to get here by boat (a 20-minute trip) from Flores.
