High above the shores of Lago Petén Itzá, in the sun-dappled depths of the Guatemalan rainforest, lies La Lancha, a 10-room lodge personally designed by director Francis Ford Coppola and his family to provide an unparalleled getaway experience. With its native ceramics and carvings and its proximity to Tikal, the epicenter of Maya spirituality, this romantic retreat immerses you in the wonder of a lost civilization.
La Lancha is situated some 45 minutes from Tikal’s pyramids, and offers a beautiful lakeshore setting, relaxed ambiance, and a gateway to adventures in the Petén region. The Casitas that dot the grounds have private decks where the local howler monkeys come to say hello, and complimentary canoes allow you to explore the adjoining lake. A magical retreat in one of Earth’s truly magical places.
