If you want to stay real close to Takalik Abaj, you'll definitely want to check out this lodge. Taking over parts of a working coffee plantation that's also directly part of the archaeological site, this is one of the more unique hotels in Guatemala. The lodge has two types of rooms, those in the old coffee plantation, or El Paseo del Café Estancia, and Kacike Maya. I prefer the latter. The two large suites here are very liberal interpretations of the rooms previously occupied by Maya royalty. In either case, the rooms are comfortable, with firm beds and tasteful decor, and minimal amenities. There's also a restaurant and a swimming pool, and in addition to touring the Maya ruins and coffee plantation, activity options include horseback riding, hiking, and bird-watching.
