Property Description

A 30 minute hike down an ancient Mayan pathway leads to our beautiful and secluded little piece of paradise. At Ch'i Bocol Community Hostel we have a full service restaurant and bar, a nice common area with several hammocks and other comfortable seats, and amazing company. We pride ourselves in making you feel at home, no matter where you are from and how far you have traveled to get here.

All of our accommodations are private or shared cabins which are spread across a 2 acre piece of land. They are quite spacious and comfortable, with several windows to let the cool breeze in. Our dorms include lockers for all of your valuables, and all cabins include power outlets to charge your electronics.

Ch'i Bocol Community Hostel is located deep in the heart of the Guatemalan jungle, with a creek on one side of the property, and the beautiful Cahabon River on another. Only a few minute walk from our cabins is a natural swimming pool on the edge of a beautiful waterfall.

Really enjoyed our stay in the wilderness here! It’s definitely a trek to get into but it’s worth it - it’s so beautiful. Staff were lovely and the family style meals were great and created such a nice atmosphere. Some issues with water and electricity but that’s to be expected in such a remote place

We loved Chibocol, we booked 2 nights and ended up staying 4. It’s a little paradise in the middle of the jungle. The other backpackers that stayed with us were amazing and that made for a very cozy atmosphere in the communal dinners. Adonai (staff) was great and cooked amazing food. Just be aware that you need a 30 minutes hike to get to the hostel and that at times they might run of water at night. Moreover, while it did not happen to us, they said that when it’s cloudy they might run out of electricity t

Adonai was an amazing host! Super friendly swapping stories and hanging out. Food was really good here with a lot of different meals. The hostel has an amazing family vibe with everyone eating together and hanging out in the main hut. Its a 30 min walk to get here but it’a worth it as you can’t see a single human thing when you look out and all the sounds of the jungle and river are incredible
