Far away from everything. Close to the sky. Beautiful landscape with the possibility to ride horses from 1 day to 7 days. Excellent for relaxation and to experience the country side. In the area this is located, there is not much related to a city. It is on top of the mountains, with an incredible view, no wifi, no supermarket,... More

I concede that many would not rate the quirky and unique Unicornio Azul as deserving 5 stars because the generator goes off at night, so no electricity, and the bedrooms are not heated, so at 3000m this requires the odd chilly dash to the toilet at night. However, if you are prewarned and pack appropriate clothing and are prepared to... More

It has been a while since I stayed there, but I can't believe I didn't write a review at the time. Where to begin? Pauline and Fernando and their wonderful, easy-going welcome; the beautiful buildings, simple and welcoming and in great taste; the bliss of riding through the Chiantlas countryside: Pauline is great with nervous, first time riders. The night... More

This is a lodge primarily designed for horseback riding excursions for experienced riders, but it is also a charming family-owned farm, where the owner, Pauline, keeps and lovingly cares for her very-well trained horses and can teach newbies how to ride correctly in hour-long lessons. (Our family enjoyed so much riding horses for the first time, we look forward to... More

The farm is in a beautiful area of Guatemala that I have never been to before. The hotel is clean and comfortable, cold at night but they give you hot water bottles which made sleeping toasty. We took a two hour horse ride and loved it. The horses are obviously well cared for, the scenary amazing. The owner was full... More

This was an amazing experience at Los Cuchumatanes, the place is beautiful. There´s a lot of family activities you can enjoy if you are staying at the Inn, the property has a place where you can watch all the view of a lot of the Guatemalan volcanoes, you can ride the horses, or go and have a picnic at the...

Pauline is the kindest, most competent, horse person/teacher and exactly what we as a family needed. But she can also adapt to more experienced riders for sure. The place is magical and quite unique even within Guatemala.
