Property Description

Gucumatz Lakeside Inn is the ideal place to unwind from the hustle and bustle, where guests can experience nature at its best. The facilities include 9 rooms, a guest kitchen, a games room with pool table and ping-pong table, bar and beach area on the shores of the majestic Lake Peten Itza.

The hotel is located in the municipality of San Jose, in the department of Peten, Guatemala. It is located on the shores of the cleanest waters of the lake and about 55 km from the archaeological site of Tikal and 33 km from the island of Flores.

All types of tourists are welcome, although the adventurous tourist in search of quieter places can feel at ease. It is also ideal for couples and even families who want to enjoy a holiday with more privacy. We have standard rooms, with fan, private bathroom and terrace. There are triple and double rooms, all of them decorated in a typical Guatemalan style.

Gucumatz is possibly the best hostel I've ever been to (out of the 40 or so hostels ive stayed at). The location is a little inconvenient but absolutely worth it. You're right by the lake, the rooms are clean (first time i took a shower in a hostel without wearing thongs) and the owner is an absolute gem (she dropped me off personally at the bus stop when i checked out). If you have 2 nights or more in Flores i absolutely recommend everyone to come here.

Moya is an interesting and kind woman who has created something very special here on the lake. Prepare to be enchanted by the quirks of this nomads oasis. It is a perfect respite for long term travellers, a peaceful property where you can relax and be mesmerised by the hummingbirds and nature that surrounds. It may seem out of the way but is well worth it and an easy journey when catching the chicken bus from the mercado and getting dropped right out the front of Gucumatz.

We loved our stayed at Gucumatz - a perfect place to relax, with lots of nooks for reading and swimming. The lakeside is beautiful, we swam everyday and borrowed kayaks (for free) to explore further. Getting there is easy from the bus station in Santa Elena (next to Flores). The bus stops right outside, so you can't miss it and we were sent instructions before hand. Kitchen has all the utensils you need and lovely lakeside views while you eat, but be sure to bring all the food you need for y
