went for a romantic trip with my hubby, as we arrived we got off on the dock and wandered way to the back to find a table full of people that had blatantly ignored us. Even though we had made reservations no one even got up to say hello, it was as if those at the table had to draw...

I am the coordinator for a team of 39 that stayed at the Finca Tatin while working on humanitarian projects nearby. Coordination with the Finca was a joy. They were easy to coordinate with, offered consistent and delicious food, were flexible with the constant changes of our teams' needs, and even extended their help with our humanitarian projects.

We heard about this place from another review which said it was a 'must do' when visiting Guatemala. They weren't wrong! This has to be one of the best places I have stayed. It gives you a real sense of being in the heart of the jungle. We arrived into Livingston and were picked up in the Finca Tatin boat...

From the moment that you arrive you realise that this is a special place. The atmosphere is relaxed and the staff very attentive. The cabins by the river are just wonderful-an honesty system for guests is the way that the restaurant and bar works. The owner is really friendly and helpful. Just realise that you are a boat ride from...

Great atmosphere, lots of activities provided by staff, food is excellent and not overpriced. Rent a kayak and go exploring the river! Only minus - mind the mosquitos as it is located over a swamp. Awsome vegetation and wildlife but bring a repelant

Finca Tatin was recommended to me by a Guatemalan friend and it was well worth the trip. My plan was to stay as a stop over between Tikal and Utila, but it was so relaxing and enjoyable that I stayed 5 nights. Carlos and Gabby are fantastic owners and seem to attract the right type of guests. The communal dinners...

Stayed here from 04/21-04/24. I was looking for a place where I could forget about the world and I found it! Finca Tatin its located about 30 minutes from Livingston (by a boat ride). I was picked up at 9:00 p.m. from Livingston, the ride by lancha (boat) was amazing!! Despite the fact that it was pitch dark and could...

The place is very well located for people who want to relax in a hammock and swim in the river. The meals are good and I enjoyed the family style dinners. The cabins are nice and if you can afford a riverfront one, get it as it is much cooler.

I've gone back to Finca Tatin time and time again due to the phenomenal atmosphere, food, and personal attention from the staff. Kayaking to the surrounding sites or going on a trek through the jungle are just some of the activities that can fill up a two or three day escape.

While staying at Finca Tatin with my wife a couple days ago, (May 2013) we had a wonderful experience. The pick up was on time at Livingston, where Gaby greeted and took us on a delightful boat ride through the river. On the ride we saw pelicans, white herons, seagulls and other birds; the landscape was breathtaking and made us...
