Las Lagunas is a boutique hotel in the heart of the Mayan world, located close to the ruins of Tikal, Uaxactún and Yaxhá. Set inside more than 300 acres of a private reserve dedicated to conserving Guatemala’s native species, you’ll sleep surrounded by the sights and sounds of an ancient jungle—including howler monkeys and more than 250 bird species that have made this land their own backyard. Luxurious suites overlook the lush native jungle or the peaceful Quexil Lagoon. Traverse the property along wooden walkways among a forest of sapote, kapok, chewing gum, allspice and other exotic species. Rooms feature air conditioning and fans, plush bedding and high-end design along with dark woods and shady spaces for lounging, plus the en suite bathrooms include the delight of a rain shower. An infinity pool surrounded by Tikal-inspired stonework surrounds a magnificent hardwood tree, and the open-air restaurant features decadent and heart meals—many sourced from local ingredients.
