The most enjoyable part of my stay was the river. Sitting next to it swimming and Kayaking . Its a great place to chill out in a hammock and read a book. I feel the staff are a little disinterested and not overly welcoming but are helpful and accommodating when asking for information . They also responded very promptly to...

Great place to stay right on the river with friendly staff. The area along the rivers tatin and dulce is gorgeous. The bungalows are very simple (we stayed at Mariposa - river view). If you arrange your arrival beforehand, they'll pick you up from Livingston. They also have kayaks that you can rent, and a rope swing to jump from...

Finca tatin hotel was my favourite place in Guatemala. It's based on the rio dulce river which is great for swimming and kayaking. The family style dinner was amazing, lots of beautiful food. This hotel is a great place to relax, with friendly staff and a chilled out atmosphere. We also seen lots of cool native animals. Would highly recommend!

We really enjoyed our stay at Finca Tatin. In fact, it was one of the more enjoyable and memorable parts of our latest trip to Guatemala. Although it is a little harder to get to, it is well worth the extra effort. Hiking, kayaking, visiting waterfalls, swimming in cave pools, going to Livingston, and more. There is plenty to do,...

We stayed there for a week and could have easily spent another one. I don't think I ever saw a hotel with so much heart, it almost leaves nothing to complain about. They got great food, excellent services and incredibly nice personnel. What I also enjoyed was the variety of animals living in and around the Finca. The atmosphaire of...

We stayed here for four nights in the Pelicano bungalow. What a fantastic time we had- definitely a highlight on our month long trip in Guatemala. The location is so special with much of the site built over the river on wooden planks. This allowed us to see crabs, turtles and birds going about their usual day. We spent a...

I am the coordinator for a team of 39 that stayed at the Finca Tatin while working on humanitarian projects nearby. Coordination with the Finca was a joy. They were easy to coordinate with, offered consistent and delicious food, were flexible with the constant changes of our teams' needs, and even extended their help with our humanitarian projects.

We heard about this place from another review which said it was a 'must do' when visiting Guatemala. They weren't wrong! This has to be one of the best places I have stayed. It gives you a real sense of being in the heart of the jungle. We arrived into Livingston and were picked up in the Finca Tatin boat...

From the moment that you arrive you realise that this is a special place. The atmosphere is relaxed and the staff very attentive. The cabins by the river are just wonderful-an honesty system for guests is the way that the restaurant and bar works. The owner is really friendly and helpful. Just realise that you are a boat ride from...
