I just spent a quick trip to Tikal/Yaxha. Casa don David provided ALL of our services, transport, lodging, tours etc. The whole family is very approachable and helpful. The village is beautiful, and we wandered around and met some of the local residents. Do not miss Yaxha! The upgrade to the suite is way more than worth it. I just...

The family and staff and La Casa de Don David are warm, generous, friendly and very helpful. We must have asked more than a hundred questions about all the different things in the area and no matter who we asked, they were always polite, friendly and full of great information. They assisted us with transportation to/from Tikal, prepared box lunches...

La Casa de Don David is located in a beautiful part of El Remate right on Lake Peten Itza. Our room was simple, clean, comfortable and cozy - just what we wanted.

This place was really worth it the price you pay. There are some other small hotels in the area as well but this place overlooks the lake, a meal is included in the price of your room, free water refills, and the garden area is just beautiful. The best part though I think is the fact the staff really tries...
