We had heard about this finca, owned by former refugees of the Guatemalan civil war, but we did not expect the beautiful surroundings, the exceptional service, and the cultural experience it provided for our whole family. We arrived at a time when there was no electricity (the owners provided us with a solar-panel powered battery so we could have light at night and recharge our cellphones) but this unexpected event allowed us to enjoy an awesome view of the night sky, particularly during a night when we had a lunar eclipse. There was so much to see and do, we never missed technology! It was fun to reconnect with our family while taking walks in the woods, visiting the nearby lagoon and chatting with fellow adventurers over a delicious dinner at the long table in the main house; it was eye-opening learning about the history and culture of the amazing people who not only survived a war but rebuilt their lives as well as this lodge. We particularly recommend spending time with Edgar Diaz and Angel Diaz, who were our hosts and guides, and taught us a lesson about how the human spirit may overcome and thrive great challenges.

Room Tip: We rented the 6-person cabin that is across the garden from the main house, and we were very happy with it.

It is more than just a place to visit, it is a life experience! The beauty of the place, the amazing tours you can make and incredible places to visit are just one part, but the breathtaking history of its people and the community it what really makes it such a special place! There is no electricity nor internet but you never miss it... You reconnect with yourself and become a different person after the experience of visiting Chacula!

I’ve never came back from a place with the feeling of receiving more than I gave and I’ve never rated a place with 5 stars while thinking this isn’t enough… until now!
As its name indicates this is a rural inn, so don’t expect a hairdryer, fast Wi-Fi and cable TV… But don’t freak out, you’ll almost forget you once needed them. This is about sleeping in a cozy, candle lit room; about eating delicious, fresh, organic food in a family style dining, about visiting adventurous, green, blue and crystal-clear-water surroundings and about learning about (and from) the lives of people in the community managing the “Posada”. This people are outstanding and live exceptional lives; they have overcome a difficult past and they’re a proof of what cooperation and hard work can achieve. They will do their best to make you enjoy your time here and they will share their lives with you. Time stops here and you wish you could live in a place like this. Seriously…

I was very surprised and impressed by this area of the country, absolutely beautiful. I can't believe more people havent heard of this place! The Posada Rural is rustic but very clean and comfortable. I was a bit nervous arriving knowing there was no electricity, but it wasnt a problem at all. They have gas lanterns, and gas for hot showers, and even a small electricity source to charge phones and cameras. The manager there is friendly and helpful, full of knowledge of the area. In the area there are TONS of things to see, you really need a few days to explore the nature. Lakes, rivers, sink holes, etc. I think its more impressive than Semuc Champey, and takes the same amount of time to get there from Antigua. Definitely recommend this place!

My, it takes patience to get to Finca Chacula, although there will be much beautiful scenery on the way. But it is beautiful, the stars at night are amazing, the atmosphere of the posada rural something out of another century. There are big fireplaces, simple but charming rooms, a big wooden table where simple but wholesome food will be served. When I was there there were gas lamps only and no electricity. There are wonderful walks to places like the Hoyo Cimarron, a vast cenote with trees at the base, lakes, archaeological sites. The Posada and walking tours is run by a cooperative of welcoming, dignified and interesting people. Don't expect luxury, water may not be very hot, the venture is new. Unspoilt beauty for adventurous and environmentally inclined travellers.

Room Tip: It only has 3 rooms, one of which has its own bathroom, the other two share.
