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...

We both had the most amazing 6 weeks at Utopia, we were both welcomed into the family with open arms and were hesitant to leave when the time came. Pia and John have created a lovely relaxing hotel filled with characters from all over the world. We felt like we were at home and can’t wait to come back

Utopia was a great experience as my first work away. the other volunteers that I met really helped with that, the lovely kitchen ladies, ANTONIO and moshy!!! the work is super easy and chill especially if you have a customer service background. I wish the hours weren't as long as they were, they could've been a little more honest about that and exactly how secluded it is. I did expect to explore a little more but if you're looking for a chill spot to relax and get work done, utopia is perfect for you. the owners were both welcoming

I volunteered 4 weeks at Utopia and it was such a great experience! The team was just amazing (I already miss them so much!), the food was so delicious (perfect if you are a vegetarian or vegan), and the place was just magical. If you love nature and are not afraid of spiders haha, then you will love this place! A big thanks again to Pia, Tonno & Franzi (the managers) who made me feel so welcome at Utopia! <3 Don't hesitate to contact them if you are an animal and nature lover and want to have a unique volunteer experience. You will have an awesome time! ;)

Utopia is a unique experience that's everyone should experience once. From the food to them full-time staff, the outdoor activities, down to the sense of community. Basically, if you love nature, you'll really enjoy the hostel.

I had the opportunity to volunteer at Utopia for three months. My overall experience was amazing. The scenery and nature are breathtaking and the river that changes every day is just steps away.
Pia and John are great. They are super friendly and accommodating, by the end of my stay I really felt like family and was sad to go. The rest of the full-time staff there are a ton of fun and really nice.
I would highly recommend Utopia for anyone who is looking for a getaway from the hustle and bustle that life can bring and would like a new jungle experience.
I hope to be back again one day!
