San Ignacio

Make yourself at home at Francis Ford Coppola’s former family retreat, Blancaneaux Lodge. This 20-room hideaway is in a rainforest wonderland where waterfalls flow below the jungle canopy. Explore the ancient civilization of the Maya and return to your thatched roof dwelling where an unrivalled collection of in-room amenities await. Private decks overlook the falls, mountains, gardens and river landscape. Guatemalan native arts and antiques classify the decor. Rejuvenate at the spa with a hot pool overlooking cascading waters, specialty Thai massages, and staff trained in ancient techniques. Over 1,000 streams begin their journey in the Reserve. Discover its natural swimming holes or explore hidden rock pools. Attendants are at your service at the fresh water infinity poolside. An organic garden produces exotic fruits and vegetables for gardener and chef-inspired dishes, with Coppola family recipes on the menu. Complimentary experiences include tours, sports and recreation, and educational activities.
