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
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
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
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.
