Set in the rainforest high above the shores of Lago Petén Itzá is La Lancha – a quaint, 10-room Guatemala glamping lodge decorated with artwork and furniture from Bali, as well as fabrics and carvings from Guatemala personally selected by the Coppola family. Beyond the clear water of the lake is Tikal, the epicenter of Mayan spirituality.
