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. La Lancha is said to be his favorite—and for good reason. Tucked away in a rainforest filled with howler monkeys and toucans, 10 thatched-roof casitas are decorated with antique Guatemalan furniture and colorful, locally made handicrafts. Thanks to the open-air Guatemalan restaurant and the split-level pool, travelers might imagine that they’ve come to settle in. But calm Lake Petén Itzá is perfect for canoe and kayak excursions, and the bustling island town of Flores is a short lancha trip away. Plus there’s historic Tikal—the ideal day trip.
