We enjoyed our stay at Tortugal, we stayed twice while traveling to and from Tikal, both stays were very relaxing with swimming, drinks and good food. Excellent internet service for those concerned with this. They have private, safe parking by the bridge and quick pick up once contacted of our arrival.

L’emplacement est absolument magnifique, pratique pour les activités, cependant nous étions isolés quant aux autres restaurants. La chaumière avec vue sur baie était parfaite pour nous. La nourriture était bien et le service impeccable. Nous recommandons cet établissement.
