Utopia Eco Hotel

We're located about 285 Km from Guatemala City. 11 Km from Lanquin and in the Valley of Semuc Champey approx. 3.5 Km from Semuc Champey National Park, one of Guatemala’s hidden treasures. We have about 220 meters of River Frontage along the Cahabón River. Here is where you will be able to do as much or as little as you like. We are a Family Friendly, Dog Friendly Eco Hotel with a vegetarian Restaurant. Situated on the Cahabón River, which is great for tubing or just relaxing on one of the large river rocks or take a short stroll down the path to the big swimming hole. You will find your home away from home nestled amongst exotic flora and fauna with at least 90 different species of birds to watch while your strolling along the many paths that have been cut though the wild flowers, coffee and cocoa trees. Utopia offers unique natural lodge style accommodation with custom one of a kind art work and furnishing.

You will be living in a remote place in the jungle with a handful of other volunteers, the management and a dozen local workers from the surrounding mayan villages. The atmosphere between the staff is very familiar. Every volunteer gets the chance to put his ideas into the steadily growing Utopia. You can put yourself into it as much or as little as you like. Feel free to participate in gardening, yoga, sports, hiking and many more...

If you’re looking to disconnect from the outside world and connect with nature this is 100% the place to go. Everywhere on the property is so peaceful and you will get addicted to going to the river everyday. The work is very easy and the people are super welcoming and friendly. Thanks to everyone on the Utopia team for everything, I hope to see y’all again 🦋

A wonderful place to connect with nature, and if you do your own research and ask enough questions, you will have wonderful opportunities to explore the land and local culture. The guests were very happy with my classes, chocolate walks, desserts & I loved making them as well as venturing out to meet locals the food was amazing too!
I didn't feel much empathy or support from the host in this job, I was on my own and I would recommend the host to be more approachable and willing. Apart from that all was great! Different times different personalities make your own experience!

I truly felt at home at Utopia.
The staff and the other volunteers were all a joy to work with and the surrounding nature is incredible. I loved spending hours at the river and falling asleep/waking up to the sounds of the jungle.

The hours can seem long at first but I honestly didn’t mind it, you will still have plenty of free time to relax and explore. It’s easy to get into the rhythm and I always had fun while working, chatting to the team and the guests.
Semuc Champey and beautiful viewpoints are all in walkable distance.

I really enjoyed volunteering here!
The team and the other volunteers were amazing and I already miss them. The nearby river and the nature surrounding this remote place is stunning.
The work was very enjoyable as well, the tasks were comprehensible and easy but still fun and the guests and staff were really nice to work with. The hours of work sound a lot at first but I thought it was a good balance of work and free time.

I’ve had an incredible stay at Utopia! The property is beautiful and the people are amazing! But it is located in the middle of nowhere - so if you aren’t into that, this place isn’t for you. But if you are willing to leave behind the city-life, Utopia will be your new dream-home. The work is super easy, though a bit more hours than the usual volunteer jobs, not that it mattered anything to me.
Hope to come back there next year for a longer period of time!
