Overview
More
Situated in the area of Tzantizotz which in local Kaqchikel means Point of Bats, this mountainous area begins at the lake front and reaches high altitude tropical dry forest. Well maintained paths for every fitness level traverse old Mayan trails. Palm thatched resting pavilions offer panoramic views of the entire lake.

The walk through the Nature Preserve was pleasant, although mostly uphill. We were able to see some monkeys and walk over several swinging bridges. The Butterfly Area was beautiful.

Behind Laguna Lodge is a small nature reserve, on the very steep slopes of the lake, with a winding path up the hill that leads you to a belvedere, a small thatched hut with two hammocks and a superb view of the lake. For the...More

It's not a trampoline like you might think. Its just a platform to jump from. We did the entire loop hike. They views weren't that impressive. But it was a nice nature loop to get a little hour exercise in and a nice swim. I...More

Steep climb but worth it. Great views of the Lake. Take water and sunscreen. If you are a birder, be sure to start by 6:00AM.

This is a beautiful hotel and certainly the walk is exceptional. The hotel is not a big fan of children, so that was a bit of a concern for us when trying to have a cup of tea after the fact. The walk was nice,...More
