Jungle Lodge Review

Built almost 60 years ago to house archaeologists working at Tikal, this lodge has 36 spacious bungalows with double beds. The 12 rooms aren't nearly as spacious. Two suites have king beds and whirlpool baths. There are whirling ceiling fans, but the generator is shut off from around 11 pm to 5 am, so you may be hot at night. If your budget allows, choose one of the bungalows or suites, rather than overpriced rooms with shared baths. The restaurant serves unremarkable food, though in a pleasant dining room. Breakfast is included in the rates.

    Archaeological experience

    If you want to have the full Tikal experience then you have to stay here. The location is terrific and the staff could not have been friendlier or more helpful. The photos of Tikal are amazing and the history of the lodge make it memorable. We met the owner's son and he regaled us with stories of the exploration of the site...a great evening. Katie Valk arranged our itinerary and made our adventures in Belize and Guatemala possible.
