La Casa de Don David Review

Don David Kuhn has lived in the area for 40 years and is a great source of Tikal travel tips, and his hotel near El Remate, while not the most deluxe in the area, offers a lot for the visitor. The hotel's web site has a wealth of information on travel to Tikal and in the Petén. In fact, you can consider this little inn as the area's semi-official tourist information center. Rooms are simple and clean, with private baths, and most have air-conditioning. La Casa has a second-floor, open-air restaurant with good home cooking and nice views of Lake Petén Itzá. One meal is included in the room rate—you can choose to have breakfast or dinner here. A fixed-price dinner is around Q55. The hotel offers good, well-priced tours to Tikal, Yaxhá, and other sites, along with horseback riding and boat rides on the lake. Free Wi-Fi.
