I stayed at Nitun for four nights with my husband and three young children at the beginning of March and we all agree that it was the best part of our excellent two week visit to Guatemala. Lorena, Bernie and Arturo go above and beyond to ensure their guests are taken care of. For start- Our bags were ejected from our evening Avianca flight because of weight issues, and Bernie returned to retrieve them the following morning on the next flight, going so far as to search the plane(!) when one of the bags still didn't turn up. He found it, earning the eternal regard of my 10-year-old daughter. The casitas are lovely, the lake, where we took early morning and evening swims, delightful. Lorena, Arturo and Bernie are fantastic company who are keen to share their love for and knowledge of Peten's ecology, Mayan culture and history- it was seriously enriching to meet these lovely people. We enjoyed our trip to Yaxha with Bernie, and when power went off in the entire Peten Department (for 15 hours or so) on our way back, Lorena and Carmen didn't miss a beat- dinner was still prepared and everyone rolled with it. Much has been said about Lorena's cooking, and it's all true. Honestly- I'm embarrassed by my swooning, but I cannot say enough good things about Nitun and the wonderful staff.
