Posada del Angel, Antigua

Standard room | B&B Basis | 2 nights

Situated within walking distance of the buzzing main plaza of Antigua, rests this colonial mansion turned intimate boutique hotel. Posada del Angel clings to its Mayan heritage, offering much more than just a place to lay your head. Mayan textiles caress the beds and traditional Guatemalan cuisine adorns the menus. For a magical start to the day, head to the rooftop terrace and enjoy your morning coffee overlooking Volcán de Agua.

Casa Palopó Atitlan, Lake Atitlan

Deluxe room | B&B Basis | 2 nights

Nestled on the shores of Lake Atitlan, Casa Palopó welcomes you with vivid colours and interesting antiques. Unmarred by televisions, this boutique hotel offers tranquillity and escape from the outside world, perfect for absorbing your surroundings and the Mayan way of life. Step out on to your private terrace and take in the volcanic views. Luxurious yet homey, make this casa ‘su casa’.

Las Lagunas, Flores

Master Suite | B&B Basis | 2 nights

Tucked amongst 300 acres of untouched, pristine jungle, Las Lagunas is much more than a hotel; it’s an experience. The perfect place for a jungle trek and a spot of bird watching is, literally, on your doorstep. If going slow is more your speed, indulge in a massage and a cocktail on the dock. Private is an understatement when it comes to Las Lagunas. With only 16 rooms, you’re more likely to run into the local wildlife than other guests.

Westin Camino Real, Guatemala City

Standard Deluxe Room | B&B Basis | 1 night

Conveniently located in Zone 10 of the capital, the Camino Real is a stone’s throw away from Guatemala City’s favourite restaurants and bars. Despite the fast-paced nature of the city, the hotel offers its guests a retreat. With stained glass windows and marbled floors, there’s grandeur everywhere you look. If the nearby nightlife doesn’t appeal, spend a night in the hotel’s own casino and toast your stay in the elegant Biltmore Bar.
