Rest of Guatemala

Hotels in Rest of Guatemala

Set on a former coffee plantation, this once-middling motel in an overcrowded tourist stop has restyled itself as the place to stay in Panajachel—which is, well, still an overcrowded tourist stop.

This jungle hotel certainly has pedigree: it’s one of Francis Ford Coppola’s luxurious Latin American retreats. Over the years, the famous winemaker (and award-winning director) has opened or acquired hideaways in some of his favorite spots: Belize, Buenos Aires, and here, in northern Guatemala.
