Chiminos Island, Aguateca
The Chimino's Island Lodge is located in Punta de Chimino, on the beautiful Petexbatun Lagoon, in Guatemala's jungle region. The Chimino's Island Lodge offers 5 attractive mahogany bungalows, each perfectly nestled in the jungle and several hundred feet away from each other, so you can enjoy your own private rainforest and the overwhelming views of the lagoon.
Each bungalow at the Chimino's Island Lodge has its own private bathroom, hot water and the rooms completely protected from insects and other animals. You will be surprised by the luxury and cleanlyness, unusual in these types of jungle lodges.
The property is crossed by pathways, where you will experience intimate contact with the jungle, its impressive wildlife and the remains of the fortified Mayan citadel, for the most part still unearthed.
You can get to Chimino's in a 45-60 minute drive from the Flores Airport via Sayaxche. From there you will take a boat for a 1 ½ hour river cruise to Lake Petexbatun.
