The library is super beautiful, the hotel itself is gorgeous. The breakfast tasted good but disappointing that they use Tortillas maseca full of transgenic corn.

Interesting and well put together museum and cultural centre, good place to learn about the history of the indigenous peoples in the area.. The guided tours were done in Spanish or English and were pretty cheap and very good.

Amazing couple that rehabbed this forgotten monastery in the 50s. They worked to save the rainforest and the Mayans. Their collection of artifacts is incredible. You can also book a room here and eat in the restaurant.

For that level of detail, and this time of year, I suggest your Google Na Bolom and email them directly. The answer they give will be more correct than my guess.
