How Do I Get There?

La Lancha is tucked into the rainforest high above the shore of Lago Petén Itzá in Guatemala’s largest and most northern department, the Petén. The lodge is located an hour away from the border with Belize and only a 45-minute drive from the magnificent Maya ruins of Tikal and the Maya Biosphere Reserve.

Across the lake, the ancient island capital of the Itzá tribe, Tayasal, now lies under the cobbled streets and colonial buildings of modern day Flores. La Lancha’s ideal location makes it easy to explore the wonders of the ancient Maya. The spectacular monuments of Tikal, Uxactun, Yaxhá, Topoxte, Nakum, Dos Pilas, Aguateca and Seibal can all be visited by day tour, and helicopter access during the summer months opens up other mighty Maya sites such as El Mirador, Dos Pilas, El Peru Waka and Cancuen.

Set in the rainforest high above the shores of Lago Petén Itzá is La Lancha—a quaint, 10-room 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.
