La Lancha Hotel
Set in the rainforest high above the shores of Lago Petén Itzá is La Lancha, a quaint, 10-room lodge decorated with artwork and furniture from Bali, as well as fabrics and carvings from Guatemala personally selected by the Coppola family. Beyond the clear water of the lake is Tikal, the epicenter of Mayan spirituality. Buried deep within the rainforest, the ruins include more than 3,000 structures where moss clings to the steps of ancient temples and plazas. With its beautiful lakeshore setting, relaxed ambiance and close proximity to the lost world of Maya, La Lancha is an ideal destination to both enjoy a languid pace and explore the many adventures of the Petén region.
Set high in the hillside above Lago Petén Itzà is our charming Main Lodge. This split-level building is a hub of activity at La Lancha, housing our reception area, gift shop, patio, restaurant and bar all under its towering thatch roof. The open plan design offers beautiful panoramic views of the lake and jungle canopy below. The lodge’s patio features a small library decorated with native art furnishings and is a popular place for guests to access the complimentary Wi-Fi or relax with a book in our plush armchairs.
