Ni'tun Ecolodge

San Andres, Peten

 

Ni’tun Ecolodge is the perfect environment for meditation, relaxation and learning about nature... It’s a great spot for any healthy activity before we begin an expedition, as well as to rest and get charged with positive energy before going back home...

Ni’tun Ecolodge offers four luxurious double or triple cabins, all with private bathroom, hot and cold water and a beautiful terrace with a view of Lake Peten Itzá... All of the construction are renewable resources, generously provided by the Earth... Our cabin’s guano palm thatched roofs, sand, rock and wood are in tune with nature blending completely into the forest all around them...

The sounds of water... the songs of birds... and the choirs of nature by night give you an intimate sense of communion with yourself and the world around you. Our international bar and cuisine specialize in vegetarian food. A variety of music and books may be leisurely enjoyed while hanging in a hammock in Ni’tun Ecolodge’s cozy social area...

Experience the wonders of the beautiful flora that have survived up until our twenty-first century modern world... Discover the beauty of Lake Peten Itzá and enjoy the songs of birds every morning... Time is frozen here in Mesoamerica and it is just waiting for you to become a part of it all.

Located in San Andrés, Ni’tun is an ecological lodge, hotel, posada, or however you want to refer it. It is also a home... Home to our forest and to all the animals that live in it...

Among them: porcupines, opossums, cotuzas, coatimundis, grey fox, iguanas and lizards, squirrels, etc.; it is also home to many insects like chicharras (cicadas), butterflies, mantis, beetles, fireflies; to the increasingly varied bird population like black and white, yellow, magnolia and blackburnian warbler... purple honeycreeper and ovenbird; brewer’s blackbird; starlings; hermit thrush; great kiskadee; flycatchers; woodpeckers and woodcreepers; masked tityra...

...neotropical cormorant and anhinga; egrets; great-tailed grackle; jacamars; trogons; kingfishers; pauraques, poorwills and nigthawks, burrowing and great horned owls; red-tailed hawk and different kinds of falcons; plain chachalaca; brown jay; grooved-billed Ani; keel-billed toucan and collared araçari; blue-crowned motmot and many different kinds of hummingbirds like the wedge-tailed sabrewing, white-bellied emerald, Anna’s, the ruby-throated, green-breasted mango, Alexandri, faun-breasted and rufous-tailed...

All of these great creatures along with all the other living species of Lake Peten Itzá (like Petenia splendida or blanco fish, turtles, and snails) are very important to us. We provide feeders and water reservoirs for them, we try to keep their habitat untouched; we take their future very seriously and that is why we keep on working in a viable forest management that will enable us to help them survive through the hazards of the XXI Century. All of these friends greet you in this little respite from the fast pace of life.

At the moment, Ni’tun is undergoing legal steps towards becoming one of the first few private reserves in Peten, Guatemala with a 15.27 acres (6.18 hectares) of extension. We urge you to take steps in your cities, communities, and workplaces towards reasonable and sustainable development so that we can all live in harmony preventing the disappearance of wonderful habitats.
