We are a Party Lodge tucked away in the remote mountains of Guatemala. The property is situated on the banks of the Lanquin River surrounded by jungle and valleys. There is really nothing like it and even though it is remote, thousands of travelers come to see the national Park SEMUC CHAMPEY. We provide a relaxing peaceful spot by day and a social, fiesta vibe by night. As a popular spot in Lanquin, you will meet people from all around Guatemala and the world.
We have been in the hostel industry for over 15 years and have had hundreds of volunteers come through helping us out. We have had the luck meeting all sorts of skilled and or professional chefs, bartenders, managers, electricians, engineers, bakers, yoga instructors, accountants, (English) teachers, etc. People love the vibe here and they often stay months if not longer.
There are quite a few critters in the surrounding such as mosquitoes (not too many) beatles, cockroaches, spiders, small rodents, etc (we are in the middle of the jungle after all). We get glorious storms and piping hot weather, which can lead to power outages and erratic internet at times. However, nothing brings people together like the absence of social media. The local people are very friendly, mainly working in tourism or farming, and our guests are fun loving and ready for shenanigans.
