Whether you’re swimming in the outdoor pool or watching peccaries and white-tailed deer frolic on the grounds, your stay at Villa Maya is bound to be memorable. That’s because this lodging immerses you in the tropical beauties of the jungle at Petén, Guatemala, even as it extends you an invitation to adventure.
Situated close to Lakes Petenchel and Monifata, the Villa Maya hotel is a 45-minute drive from the Mayan ruins at Tikal. It’s a perfect base for exploring the surrounding forests, whether on horseback or on a bicycle rented from the hotel itself. Botanical gardens also allow you to study up close the exotic birds of the region. Invariably, though, the best reason to visit Villa Maya is to experience the wondrous landscapes of one of Central America’s great paradises.
