Jaguar Inn is actually two hotels: One in Santa Elena, near the charming little village of Flores (On an island in lake Peten Itza), and the second one within Tikal national park, next to the entrance of Tikal archeological park (One of the main maya archeological site of Central America). These two hotels were created by the parents of Edmundo and Natalia, who are now managing it.
The hotel is at the heart of the tropical rainforest, in the middle of the national park. Three hotels are side by side at the entrance of the park. They were built before the area was classified as national park. Therefore they can keep on operating within the park, but cannot expand, and no more hotel can be built.
Jaguar Inn is the smallest of the three, and the only one without a swimming pool… But it has more than that ! Manager Carlos and its team are very caring, and the restaurant offers delicious, carefully prepared dishes. The atmosphere complies with the hotel motto: “calidez guatemalteca”, Guatemalan warmth.
The hotel wishes to improve its eco-touristic practices in order to fit even better within its natural environment, but also to keep on moving upmarket by offering an always more caring service.
