Villa de Los Castellanos - All-inclusive Resort Lodge Poptun - Guatemala

Villa de Los Castellanos is a beautiful eco-lodge located in the town of Machaquila, seven kilometers north of Poptun. The lodge is built on 5 hectares of land overlooking Rio Machaquila and surrounded by a forest and a medicinal plant garden. If you are interested in heliconia flowers, it’s one of the best places to find them in Guatemala. This garden is especially appropriate for anyone who loves tropical flowers as well as for students of anthropology, native medicine or folk healing. The fourteen rooms are set in beautiful cabanas made from renewable natural materials found in the region. They all have private bathrooms, mosquito nets and fans. Ecologically focused, the owners have a reforestation program and visitors can participate. So far they have planted 10,000 Spanish Cedars, 800 Jocote Fraile trees, 2,700 Matilishuates, 500 Mahoganies and hundreds of medicinal plants. There is also a good restaurant and the owners organize trips to local caves, ruins, and forest preserves.
